Grateful Mini and a side of Quilt

Happy Friday!  I have two projects to share today.  I'm so excited about both of them.  The first is a quilt that I just finished for my sister.  She's having a little boy in December so I wanted to make a quilt for her.  The beauty of this quilt is that I didn't spend a dime on it!  It's completely made of scrap fabric that I had already!  Even the backing I already had.  I used a Carmen's Block pattern, so it was easy to put together.  I really love it!

My second project is my Grateful mini.  I was inspired by Ali Edwards who did a gratitude journal a while ago.  I love the fact that there was a place to write down what you're thankful for everyday.  I finally did my own version.  I'm going to keep this book on my nightstand and every night, I'll stamp the date and write down one thing I'm thankful for that day.  It will really help me keep thinking positive thoughts and focus on the many blessings in my life.  I was lucky to find the perfect size journal at Borders.  And it's kraft paper, which is something I've been wanting to work with.  I love the way it turned out!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
