First of all, I owe a HUGE apology to Dawn for not having posted this on my blog earlier...I'm sorry for not sharing the picture of this great bag sooner! This wonderful bag is the one I received from Dawn for the bag/bucket swap. I am using it now, and I just LOVE it. It is huge and has nice long handles and great inside pockets. It is just gorgeous! Thanks a million, Dawn!
And in my absence, I have been super-busy with real life (not fun stuff, but just junk I had to deal with). However, I did do some sewing. I made the armchair caddy for my partner in the Stitcher's Angel Swap. This is going in the mail to her tomorrow.
I made these blocks from a 'kit' that I had precut for myself. This pattern in Snapshots by Terry Atkinson. These blocks aren't that exciting, but in the end it will be a pretty baby quilt. Maybe I'll find a way to spice it up a bit, or maybe I won't bother. We'll see...
I also have been working on a little quilt for the Priority Hope Challenge. I'm planning to add some sort of a flower, perhaps something dimensional, to this. I'm trying to figure out my best approach, since I'm already at the size limit (I need to trim extra off the top).
I also made two blocks for a community quilt project. Sorry, no pictures. I was given strips of home dec type samples and I was asked to make string blocks for the community quilt. In December it will be given to a family in Southern Vermont living with AIDS/HIV.
