Go Anywhere bag (pattern by the lovely Anna Graham of Noodlehead!) on Thursday! I am so happy with the way this bag turned out. It's nice and roomy which is always a plus for me as I like to carry around too much stuff. This bag features my absolute favorite colors. I started with this floral Ruby Star Shining print by Melody Miller which is a nice cotton/linen blend. Perfect for bags. From there I pulled the So Sophie by Riley Blake dot for the interior, and then two Pure Elements by Pat Bravo solids for the exterior and pocket linings (Cabernet and I think Festival Fuschia).
typewriter pocket! :)
Christina's birthday! I used the Washington star pattern from 50 Fabulous Paper-pieced Stars by Carol Doak! I was sorta scared when I started it, especially since it had 64 pieces, but it really came together pretty easily! I refreshed my memory on paper piecing in the front of the book and before I knew it I was in a groove!
Block 14 and Block 15! So I'm almost half-way done, I'll need a total of 32 blocks. I'll be using the Octopi blocks on the back! I love, love, love working on this quilt! I'm hoping to finish it up this year! You can see the blocks I've finished so far here.
Deedee, Megan, and Vanessa! We had a great day! Our plans almost got thwarted by the snow, I'm so glad we were still able to get together. I can't wait for our next adventure! While we were out I picked up the middle embroidery scissors for my growing collection. Here they all are so far!
