Friday Finishes

I've been busy with other things this week, my mom doesn't drive and there were a couple of days of shepherding her to dr's appts, getting routine lab work, and she had to have her mammogram. My sister drove one day, and we all had lunch which is always fun. A couple of weeks ago I had shown her the case I made for my glasses and she really liked it so I made her one too. I took the picture on the back of my love seat next to the window because the light in here is awful. Still haven't taken down the Christmas lights!

I ordered some zippers from Etsy that came yesterday, and I got one of my zipper pouches finished. I think I need a bit of cream ribbon tied to the zipper pull.

This is the back of it.

I took both of these pictures with the bag propped up on this little cushion which I also made this week:

I'm still not crazy about this cushion. I picked the print out first and then picked out the embroidery pattern and other fabrics. The embroidery is really nice, I used a chain stitch for everything except the stem of the flower and the stamen. I hand quilted it with embroidery floss also. The embroidery pattern is from this book.  Anyway, my mom loves it so it is going to her house. She's been asking me to make her some new throw pillows for awhile now.
