Last weekend I went to visit my daughter at college and I talked her into stopping at a couple of quilt shops. I found this great bag pattern and bought the 4 fat quarters that I thought would make a great bag for me. Grabbed a zipper to coordinate. The pattern was so easy to follow! It did say that the bag takes about 3 hours to make but I guess the pattern designer hasn't sewn with Vickie or Jamie. We laugh too much and yak it up. We usually have a movie going on the TV, so we can get distracted and watch the TV and pause the sewing just a bit! Anyway, I started the bag around 1:30 and I got done with it at 8:45 that night. 3 hours? I think that gal was crazy! 7 hours later, 2 twilight movies, brats for supper, a chocolate milkshake run to the dairy queen and the movie Brulesque...I completed my new purse! It turned out so stinking cute!
No sewing for me today...I have a wedding shower this afternoon for my niece Rachel. My mom and I are going to travel to Avoca, Iowa today for that. It is about a hour and a half drive and the shower starts a 2. Really cramps my sewing style! Good thing I got done with all I did yesterday.
This week I have been working on my "Jelly Bean" quilt kit that I got about 3 years ago. I have all the pieces made and the top laid out. I just have to stare it a while and move the blocks around until I am absolutely happy with it and then I will put it all together. Below is the blocks laid out on my floor. What do you think?
