I’m in training….I’m off on a Quilting Retreat to Mount Alford this weekend, I know just how strenuous they can be, and I felt I needed a work out to get me in the groove.
Yesterday when I got home from work, I bypassed the housework yet again and headed to my sewing room.
So what did I produce with all this limbering up?
These two Snap Happy Bags were yesterdays efforts, the hot pink one was my warm up bag, following exactly, the pattern instructions, and the one on the left was an attempt to modify the casing for the carpenters ruler closure. Not totally successful….
Today I have done a few more modifications, kinda stepped up the pace a little….. my final bag uses the store bought flexi frames. I needed a comparison to the carpenter ruler, option.
Using the scraps from my Breast of Friends Quilt that have been cluttering up the table top, they are now making more of a useful addition to my sewing room.
The long one on the left will hold my rotary cutter and scissors, the smaller one is still looking for it’s calling in life, as too are the first two, although one will probably be a travel make-up bag.
Now it is time to mentally prepare myself for the excitement of the coming weekend…..
Just one more sleep!
Thanks for visiting,
