Blue and Brown blog bonanza and other crafty bits

I wish I had a big reveal for the blue and brown challenge, but alas the week on the couch kept me from working on our living room :(

I did manage to complete a few smaller things over the past couple of days. one of which is my contribution to the Great Blue and Brown blog bonanza that I shamelessly "borrowed" from Heather over at Me Making Do. I changed it up a bit for my version, shorter cans, fabric roses and a basket style handle, but one simply must give credit where credit is due ;)
There are plans for more of these in the future, I think they'd be adorable with herbs in the kitchen!
Heather's original version

I also made a tote..I had actually started this last weekend, but then my back went out and it sat just needing assembled, taunting me all week.
The fabrics are what was left of my green cupcake fabric after the quilt in the following pictures, 3 zip pouches and 3 snap pouches.

The quilt is just a simple tied quilt with a fleece backing.

And lastly, I finally finished sewing the binding on this quilt.

I just love this quilt. I used a vintage pucker dot for the back and instead of batting I used flannel, giving it more of a bedspread feel. So, that's it for now..It's time to get back to the sewing machine!
