New Creations and Crazy Cats!

It has been HOT HOT HOT these past few days!. I recently purchased a new piece of furniture to help me organize my sewing area. I went to IKEA, which can be a dangerous place for me! I love this piece though..It has 8 cubby holes and you can purchase a bunch of different baskets that fir perfectly. I just got 4 baskets for now, and I kind of like the empty top ones as is. My cats have also taken residence inside them too :). So, here is the piece, and also I can introduce my 2 cats, since they refused to vacate!

This is Chloe

Here is Toby
They have to fight over that 1 spot too..Crazy..
Ok, on to the new creations! I have a bunch of Amy Butler patterns that I finally got around to trying..This one is super cute, but the finished product seemed too small for I enlarged it a bit and this is what I came out with-

I love the fabric on this one too..It is real heavyweight upholstery fabric. The inside has a little pocket that will fit credit cards and a lipstick or 2. The top is still a bit small for me, but I can get my hand in it. I am sure someone will love it. The next thing I made is a cute Summer tote..It is perfect for a day at the beach!

I just love the bright sandals and stripes!

That is about it for this weekend. Last pic I have is of a beautiful day lily. A great lady from work gave me a few of her day lilies last fall, and I was so pleased to see them bloom! It is a great canary yellow.
I hope everyone is enjoying the Summer so far!
