    Okay, here is my first sweatshirt jacket. There are some mess ups on it, but NOW I know what to do lol.. As you can see the binding on the front on one side is smaller then the other side...hmmmm not sure how THAT happened lol... but it doesnt matter to me. I am going to still wear it. I actually put it on a gray mens extra large shirt. I was afraid that a ladies would be too small. The test now is to wash it and make sure it wont fall apart lol....What do you think? Pretty scrappy huh? :o)

    The last picture is of a my first wall hanging. It measures approxmately 15"x15". This is a project from my first club meeting, "Joe's Little Women". My husband made the wall mount for me!

    I have been out of pocket for a few weeks. I started working at the Health Department and it has been the first job I have had in almost 8 years! I have been a stay at home wife/mom for that long and it was a shock for me to return to work. The drive for me was over an hour drive in Jacksonville! I absolutely hate Jacksonville traffic! SO, I lasted 2 weeks and said NO MORE FOR ME...I am happier being a stay at home mom. My 4 year old is much happier about it as well.

    Anyway, let me know what you think of my finished project.

    Nice jacket! You did a great job on it. And the wall hanging is beautiful too. You made the right choice staying home with your your child(ren). The drive would drive me nuts. Spending time with wee little ones is worth it!

    Ditter, it is a mens Xlarge sweatshirt.


    Mrs. M, this is where I found the tutorial... it is easy to follow. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-48923-1.htm

    I want to make another sweat shirt jacket for my mom and sister now.

    I told my husband that I dont want to look for another job unless we have to absolutley have one. He is happy with me being home. Now we can have dinner at 5 instead of 630 hahahaha

    Your jacket is cute! With patchwork it's hard to tell where the goofs are. They always look like they belong where they are! I mean, who would know? The log cabin is really nice too. Good job!

    wow! I don't know which one I like the most. That wall hanging is crisp and clean and perfect. I love your colors and the beautiful piecing on it. And your jacket is Darling. You will have lots of fun wearing that.

    Great job on both projects. :) I was a stay at home mom also. It was the best choice I ever made. Enjoy your time with them. They grow up and move out all too soon.

    I think you did a great job on both. I really like the jacket. I've been wanting to make one, I think maybe you have inspired me. I love your wall hanging, your dh did a great job on the hanger.

    I love your jacket and the wallhanging too! Nice work!! Wow, I don't know if I'd have the patience to work with those little pieces you must have used in the wallhanging... how big or should I say little were they?

    Gwen, each of those strips were 1" widths. They werent that bad to work with. The way the lady told us in class was, that this project is suppose to help you be more accurate. And I have to say that I agree with her hahahah. That is the prettiest little block I have ever made :o)

    Thank you everyone. I have hunted in my house and found ladies white sweatshirt XL this time I am going to use. I think I might make a blue one this time and give it to my sister for xmas. :o)
