Busy Ladies

Here, Sara is showing her latest tote bag.  She made this bag with vinyl on the outside in case it rains. It doesn't rain in Israel very often, but we do get rain in the winter. Great idea Sara.
And this is the inside.
Sara also is busy knitting this fluffy scarf for a gift.
Shoshana also is making this scarf and making adorable head coverings.  This is easy for the ladies to do while listening to our shiur.
Sara has in mind to use these groups of fat quarters in two new projects.  We will just have to wait and see what she comes up with.

Another Comfort Quilt

Another comfort quilt is finished, and ready to be delivered.  A big thank you to Rina for the machine quilting.  We used puffy polyester batting on this one; so, it looks so cuddly.  I have enough pieces left over from this quilt that I may make a matching doll quilt, or another small baby quilt.  I'll have to see how much time I have.  A big thank you to our friends at Budrutz for donating the batting, and to our dear friend Stephanie in Texas, for donating the fabric.

New Comfort Quilt

We finished another quick comfort quilt.  This one may be going to a very sick little boy in Betar.  It's green and blue and I used green with white dots for the backing.  I think it turned out well.

Mazel Tov To Renee

Mazel Tov to Renee on the birth of her new granddaughter and to her son and daughter-in-law.  This is turning out to be a busy week for grandmother's.  So many quilts to make!!

New Grandson

I'm happy to say my daughter-in-law and son welcomed in a new baby yesterday.  Both Mom and baby are doing well.  Me?  I'm too busy taking care of the siblings to think straight.  So, I'll be a little occupied for awhile.

New Fabric From Budrutz

I'm happy to say I made a quick trip over to Budrutz with Sara and Renee.  They have many new fabrics in their store.  I came home with some great new flannels.
 
This was a great flannel panel with matching fabric that I hope to use on the back.
And here are few more that I couldn't go home without.

Thank You

We'd like to give a big thank you to Budrutz for their generous donation of batting for our comfort quilts.  This certainly is enough for several quilts that will go to sick children here in Betar Illit.  Also, we love the scraps too!  They have wonderful new fabrics in.  I took advantage of their new flannels and brought some home with me.  What a great selection.

Sewing With Silk

Sara started a project using wonderful silk fabric.  It turned out to be more difficult than expected.  The fabric is so lovely, but for me, too hard to work with.  I'm sure she will do a great job.  I'm looking forward to seeing it when it's finished.

Avigail's New Quilt

Avigail has started the "Yellow Brick Road" quilt and once again it isn't in yellow.  It really doesn't matter what colors are used for this pattern.  It always turns out so cute.  She has just started to cut out the pieces.  We'll have to follow this along to see the progress over the coming weeks.
