It's Done!

I started this bag on Thursday and I completed it today. I didn't have a pattern for it just a picture, so with some Internet research and some guess work it turned out rather well. I am not sure what I am going to do with it yet but it is nice to have completed a project.

Friday Nite Sew-In

For the Friday Nite Sew-In I decided to work on a bag that I had in mind for over a year now. I saw a picture of it and decided to try to make it. Since I didn't have a pattern and only a vague idea of how to put it together, I did some research on the Internet.

Using some scraps of fabric from my stash I quilted the fabric using a one inch grid pattern using painters tape as a sewing guide.

I was able to complete the front and back and make the handles.

This shows the inside lining of the bag. I was able to accomplish a lot because my youngest son has autism and because of that he doesn't sleep at night sometimes so to keep myself awake I work on my sewing sometimes.

July's Sew In

July's Friday Nite Sew-In is happening on the 23rd. I am looking forward to working on a current project that I am having a bit of a creative block (excuse the pun). I have been working on a sampler quilt from some of my stash fabric that I was given but I have run out and am having trouble deciding what colour sashing, borders and bindings to put on it. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Back from Vacation

Last week hubby and I went on a camping holiday in Mooretown which is a little bit south of Sarnia in Southwestern Ontario. On Wednesday we drove up to Sarnia and spent the day exploring.

We ate poutine under the Bluewater Bridge.

We watched the freighters come into the St. Clair River from Lake Huron.

I even had the opportunity to visit The Quilt Shoppe on London Line in Sarnia.

All there fabric is on sale for $10.99 a meter until the end of August. I was able to find a Clover Needle Threader which I have been wanting for a while.
