She Sews!

Tonight I opted for getting a start on the holiday purse over writing Christmas cards. I think fabric was a way better choice than paper and ink. Don't you?

Here's what I'm working on. And, before you're super impressed that I pieced my strips together so that my directional pattern went in the right direction on each side of the tote, let me fess up to the fact that I probably never would have thought of that except that my fabrics were directional in the wrong direction to cut the strips, so I had to piece two strips together to make one, and that's when it dawned on me that each piece needed to be facing away from each other. (Yay, me!)


This is the fruit of yesterday's weaving workshop labor. Needs work, but I've got a month until show and tell. (Which means we'll be sprucing that up on January 3rd...thenight before).

Well, I'm super tired just thinking about all the things I need to do, so rather than do any of them, I think I'll get some rest.  (Call the doctor!). Hoping to get some more studio time tomorrow evening...so much to do before the holidays.

Take care everyone, and wherever you may live....stay warm!!!!

  1. Well hooray for "oops I didn't realize" that ends up working out just right.

    I love the weaving work so far, it's really caught my interest. Will you be sharing more with us once you complete it about the design and such?


I appreciate and look forward to your comments. Thanks for reading. Happy quilting!
