Spring Colors for April

I was recently invited to be a part of a Block of the Month Mystery quilt by my lovely friend, Angie.
I jumped at the chance and am realizing I really miss the piecing of quilts.
I have been sewing wallets and apron and little bags for some time now. I miss quilting.
Now, I am part of the BOM and wanted to show you what I have so far.
If you want to see the other blocks just go here.
I will share more as the time goes on.
My ten year old grand daughter helped decide what fabrics to use and well, I am going with it.
We will see in the end how beautiful it is.

New Design

I was asked if I could put the zippered coin pocket on the outside of the original  Fletcher Ross Design's Quilter's Wallet.
 I did some tweaking and came up with this.
What design are you tweaking to create your own pattern of creativity?

Little Gifts for My Friends

Good evening Bloggers,
I have been trying to get here for a week or more and this evening I have a few moments to share with you.
I have been sharing with you how I have been selling wallets on ETSY  and last week or two, I was crazily busy.

But in the meantime I attend a weekly women's bile study. We have been studying about the redeeming Savior, Jesus Christ. He has given so much for all to receive eternal salvation.  The giving He has done is nothing I can come even remotely come close to, but, I want to be a giver.

So a few weeks ago I told you I was making something for each member of my little group. I have finally completed the task and this is what I have come up with.

I had asked the group leader to find out what the ladies favorite colors are.
They do not know who has asked this question. They only know it is not the leader.
After two weeks the colors trickled in and now they will get a gift in their favorite color.
This has helped me in many ways.
1, To be able to give and not receive.
2, To serve with out expectations.
3, To understand the differences in people, and their desires.
4,  What are peoples choice in colors, so I can make those in my shop. :)
I had not thought of that until I was more than half way through the project, but I think it is a very good lesson.
I am not quite sure how to offer these little treasure gifts in my shop . I may offer as a what color choice for a price, or just make them for a price , or groups of how many, etc. Do you have any ideas?
Can you give me some of your thought? A little bit of input could go a long way.
Thank you for visiting again as always, until next time, happy bloggin'.
