After a long time of no sewing it looks like I'm on a bit of a roll ;-) A little while back I had a request for a tote bag, and since a planned game night yesterday was canceled I found myself in the company of Bernie. I got all the pieces cut, the front pieced and quilted last night, and starting sewing just after breakfast today the bag itself has just been put together:
Pretty pleased with it :-) Hope the person who will receive it will be pleased, too!
More quilty news is that I have finally gotten my Carolina Christmas quilt basted! A bit of a nightmare job:
This is one heavy quilt due to all those seams, and will probably take me a long time to quilt - need to be diciplined and do it in small dosages ;-)
Not too much sewing here lately, and hence not much activity on this blog. Thank goodness for the concept of blogging without obligation :o) But some small things have been sewn over the last couple of weeks.
A bookmark for a friend's birthday:
A needle book for another friend's birthday - recognise the stitchery on the outside?
And the start of a little quilt from my all time favorite traditional block - the bear's paw:
I'm still thinking about borders, but hope to come up with something that will work shortly :o)
