Sewing My Week-end Away!

The bigger the bag, the more "stuff" you can put in it.  Well, sometimes, that's not really what I want or need.  I  wanted a small tote that I could take to knitting class.  Something that would hold my wallet, knitting supplies,  a book or two and my cell phone.  So, I came up with this little beauty.  It is fully lined, and is interfaced with fleece so it holds it's shape well.  I doubled over the fabric pocket, so that it would be extra sturdy.  It holds my cell phone, small tablet and a pen comfortably. It's 6-1/2" tall, 6 inches wide and is 5" deep.  I just love it!  The fabric is an adorable coffee print.  And if you know me, sewing and coffee go hand in hand!  :-)

I've been busy sewing and just having fun with swaps.  I am in a sewing group through yahoo and it is so much fun.  Everyone is so excited to help and answer any questions along my sewing journey.  I just finished 6 Dresden Plate quilt blocks.  I used all of my MOM's fabric to make them.  They are 16" from tip to tip.  I haven't put a center in them yet, I am waiting to see what kind of background I am going to sew them to.  I think the fabrics all blend beautifully!   I plan on  making a table runner with them.  I have a beautiful table that would just look gorgeous showcasing them.  My plan is to frame one , too!  ...gotta run, more sewing to do! ♥♥♥

It's been a long time!

I really haven't posted in a while.  I am still struggling with the passing of my MOM.  My day's are looking up and for that, I am grateful!
