A warm Hoosier Welcome

It has been a while since this Hoosier gal has posted anything. Am trying to get back in the groove . Will be posted sewing, decorating and crafting tips. I like frugality, using what you have in your present stash.

I have been using up my fabric stash.....in order to buy some more wonderful fabrics !!  It never ends for us quilters / sewers !
Have wanted to do something for our community....so went searching for a pattern to make walker caddies.  There were many to chose from, but I liked this one. The only thing I changed was the buttons. Used velcro instead.  Took some to one nursing home a couple weeks ago, am finishing up more to take.  They are fun and easy to make.
I like this style because it stabilizes the pouch with the tabs around the legs.  While recovering  from my reconstructive foot surgery last year, I had to use a walker and hop on one leg for two months !  What an ordeal.  Just before my surgery I quickly threw together a bag to hang on my walker.  Well after only a few days it was surmised fast, that a big bag would be better.  Then the darn thing would swing back and forth with whatever I had stashed in it.  
This bag for the nursing homes has the center pocket and two pockets on either side. Enough storage and "doesn't swing out."  :)   That is a good thing.

Happy Easter to you and your family!   Jesus is Risen Indeed !  And because of what He has done on the cross, bearing all of our sins, we can have a relationship with Him and the Father.   As stated in scripture  "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. "
I always say....period.  All other are false religions, man's imagination.  God the Creator of all is the only one that has determined how to come to Him.  The Bible is the only book that is the Truth.  Prophecy is fulfilled down through the ages.  All other false books are just that. None can boast of prophecy fulfilled.
Our sins were hung on the cross with Jesus. AMEN !
May you enjoy this special weekend and Spring Day, reveling in the Re-birth of our world.
