Sweden here I come!

I hope all is well with all of you and I hope you will excuse my absence. I have been preparing for a big trip. My husband and I are heading to Sweden to visit out son. He has been going to school over there this last year. I am so excited to see him and excited to see Sweden. I made myself a new carry on for the trip. This bag was made from an Amy Butler pattern and Ikea fabric. I am very happy with it. I scotch guarded it today so it will be ready for the trip.

While I was making my carry on bag, I decided I did not have a messenger bag that would hold my camera. So with the same fabric I made this. I will be quite the wild one. I am quite happy with it.
I also wanted to share this photo. I got it today, it is our son and daughter. She flew over to spend a bit of time with her brother and the two of them are running around Seville Spain. I was so happy to get a photo of the two of them having such a great time.

Now, this is my tinny weenie which is complete. I have finished the quilting and I am quite happy with the way it turned out. I did several new to me quilting. If you click on the photo you can see the stitching.

Well, I will be leaving in a couple of days, so this will be my last post until I return in July. I hope all of you are enjoying your summer so far and have some great adventures planned. ENJOY!!!
