One is, two aren't!

I found some really nice things while I searched the internet over the holidays.  Some came to me via posts and others through Pinterest and some by sheer luck.
The first is really cute and once I'm done I'm making a journal cover.  This past Christmas as I wrapped gifts on the 23rd I ran out of tissue paper.  I was not amused!  I won't be doing that again.  I have a "Christmas" box and next time I'm in the $$ store I'm picking some up.  In the meantime, I'm writing it in my journal.
The pattern is a free download from Crabapple Hill Studio.  I didn't use the full size pattern, just the
colour photo.  I didn't need something quite that big for my purposes.  I spent a morning tracing and coloring and during the evenings, I'm doing the embroidery work.  It's definitely a work in progress.
This one isn't free but it is a sweet little quilt.......the pattern is from Sweetwater.  I have no idea where I saw this quilt, but it caught my eye and I'm definitely making it -- once I have the fabric.  I'm going to do the same coloring as the pattern.
It is a good size lap quilt as it measures 62 x 54.  Yes, I could have figured it out, but someone did all that work for me and $8.50 is not a bad price for a pattern I'm sure I will use more than once.
When you post a challenge the variety of things that people post is incredible.  The challenge this time is to clean out your sewing room.  Old fabric waiting for the right pattern, kits that have been purchased and waiting to be made up......anything goes!
Cheryl posted the cutest little clutch I've seen in a long time.  It is called the Necessary Clutch Wallet by Emmaline Bags.  If you click on the link, you can see photos of the inside of the clutch.  The pattern is $8.50 but you could make a few of these and give them away as gifts.  Say, there's an idea for next Christmas!
