My last post I mentioned that I was going to turn my mimi Whit into a cosmetic case. Welll I had a reader ask about it so I thought I would post a picture of it.
You may notice a lot of errors in this post because with the update on my IPad Blogger+ is misbehaving terribly. I am typing onto a black screen with black font, so I am literally working blind. I have a fellow blogging friend who lost her Appp altogether. Just when I was getting back to blogging!
The Autumn colours are so pretty this year. I have been seeing lots of photos on Instagram and Facebook and blogs of all the Fall decor, but I have been so busy with trip preparations, moving back from the cottage, sewing and quilting Christmas gifts and dealing with some health issues that decorating just has taken a back seat at my house. Thankfully God does a better job than I do, so just take a look at how He has beautified my yard.
No matter what window I look out of I seebeautiful colour!

I can hardly believe that September has come and gone. Of course October 1st is Parade Day and if there is a parade then I must be blogging. How sad...I keep saying I will post more and every month I have an excuse. I really have been busy tho, but nothing I can blog about. Christmas is something like 86 days away and I have a few gifts in the making so for now the only things I can show are our Two Whits.
Carrie's pattern this month gave three different pattern layouts and Sue and I chose to do differing projects.
Every time I thought about Sue and I making Whit, I tried to come up with a blog title.
It was only after I realized that we had both decided to whittle down the size of our projects and make minis for our studio wall that I came up with a name.
Sue made is lovely version in French General scraps
That centre square is perfect for a lovely hand quilted feathered wreath, and that was the plan. She has major surgery coming up and it seemed like the perfect little hand work project during recuperation. I am told that that plan may change, so for now all you get to see is a "flimsy" but quilted or not it sure is a cutie and it will look lovely on her newly revamped studio wall.
As you can see I did a much different arrangement and mine is quilted. It is also very wrinkled because it got packed up last week when we moved home from the cottage and did not surface until today. Mine was to be a mini for the wall, then it was going to be a cosmetic case, then a cushion cover, then I went back to the original plan. I made the binding and started and then decided that "No" it really wanted to be a cosmetic case, so I found a zipper and started to work on that....
By this time it was almost midnight and I was not going to trust my brain to figure out zipper installation and construction, so there it sits.
Either way though, it gives you and idea just how versatile a pattern can be. It can be constructed exactly as the pattern creator intended or it can merely be a jumping off point to something different.
Are you ready for what I decided to call our abbreviated versions of Carrie's lovely Little Bites pattern?
HALF WHITS !
