Another Busy Day Ahead

Today involves no sewing, which is a bit of a relief. I've got a pile of stuff I'm thinking about, but I can't make up my mind exactly what to do. And that yellow strawberry Lecien fabric is all I have of that, can't afford to waste it. It's a lovely canvas weight and will make a good bag. It's Minny Muu.. really, it makes me a little bit crazy. (in the happy way) Today I made the eighth version of my bag for the United Notions booth. I'm so excited that it will be in their booth, it's almost like being in the Moda family. Anyway, this is my new bag, Sew Frilly!

I had a lot of fun with this project, it looks cute in any combination of fabrics, I made two out of Wiscasset and the are so elegant by nature of the fabric. I'm not known for making more than one or two of something but I'm pretty sure I made 8 total. That's a lot of ruffling my friend.

So today has me running errands, going to Elizabeth's house and who knows what else.. I can't remember anymore! I'm sure I have a list somewhere. Elizabeth put all her new patterns on the website. Go check those out! She's got some wonderful things this time. Finally you'll be able to see my quilt from the Bubble Gum Basics that Barbara sent me! It's called Hopscotch. Super easy, super fun. I think Jane at Quilter's Inn will be kitting this quilt up, they're on their second order of Bubblegum Basics.

That's about all for me today. Phew, that's a lot of links so get busy people! xo

I was just sitting here checking out a map of downtown P-burgh. I need to explore some new phone apps today. Hopefully I'll actually sew and not just waste time technology-ifying myself. LOVE the bag! Looks like a tiny garment at the top.

That bag is FABULOUS! I'm going to have to get me one of those patterns. And that Wiscasset fabric is making my heart sing every time I see it. I better order some. Makes me think of Maine and summer.

I am SO not done making those bags. Of course I can say that because I only made one! But it's a great pattern and fun to make.
Hey, maybe I should order the pattern...

As always, a loyal friend - thanks for liking our new "child" as much as we do. You know how biased parents are, nice when others say it is good.
Wish I were in Pittsburg, but see you in Houston!
