I have been MIA for the last week as my baby girl had her fall break for college. No sewing happened.
We went shopping, went out to eat, she played with her nieces and nephews and we watched the second season of "Mindy". Hubby took her back yesterday and I was very sad, but she will be home for Thanksgiving in no time.
So yesterday, I started to sew!!
My friend Elaine and I want to make the Sew Together Bag, pattern by SewDemented. The pattern can be found on Craftsy.
There is also a great quilt along tutorial from Quilt Barn, found HERE.
I decided to piece the front and back, so I put together 2 1/2 inch squares. I had directional prints so I hope they work when I cut the pattern. I still want to quilt this piece.
Here it is so far.
I was thinking of using some of these fabrics for the pockets and lining.
This will be an ongoing project.
I do not think I can do it in a day!
I received a fun squishy in the mail. I won a giveaway over at
Donn's Lavender Nest.
If you have not been to her blog, please do yourself a favor and visit HERE.
She has beautiful fabrics in her shop and a sale going on right now too!
Look what I won!
A fat quarter bundle from Lori Holt's line Flower Patch and a box of matching Aurifill threads called Happy Colors. Look at those colors. Yep this was one happy mail day! Donna has a special way of sending packages. The items are first placed in a plastic bag, then wrapped in purple tissue with a purple bow, and then purple hearts are sprinkled inside the waterproof envelope.
How sweet is this...
Thank you Donna!
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Sewing!
