Spring Tote-How Charming!

Finished a bag this week!

So, I finished a really cute bag, a Tammy Tadd design called "New Girl".  It is done with watermelon fabric and is just too cute.  A friend at work saw it and told me her sister loves watermelons, so I said she could have it.  Well, she said I can buy more fabric and make another, so I thought, give her this one and make another out of NEW fabric!  Must now go to LQS!  Have a good week!

On a sad note, worked on a T-shirt quilt this past weekend and sewed the third row in upside down!  Argh!  Has anyone done that before???

Back to School!

Well, after four snow days, we had a full week of school here last week!  I was so worn out that I did not get to fire up the sewing machine much last week :(

So, I did go to the LQS for the Super Boltz sale after the ice storm!  I got fabric to finish a T-shirt quilt for a friend's daughter, backing fabric for a table topper, lining fabric for a tote bag, and some potato print fabric to make potato steamers for the microwave.  I went down to look for purple fabric for the T-shirt quilt and I just couldn't seem to stop myself!  BUT, all of the purchases were on sale for at least 25% off, and one piece was 75% off, so I should feel too guilty?  Let me know!  Have a great week everyone!

Snow days-day three!

Sometimes it is SO nice to be a teacher! No school again!  I am going to put the binding on my king-size "Nature's Notebook" quilt today.  I then will tackle some other projects-maybe a spring/summer bag.  I spotted some watermelon print fabric when I "thought" about straightening up the studio!  Hope all of you are where it is warm!
