This week I managed to finish up a miniquilt and 18 luggage tags for work presents (don’t ask – half of them I had to throw away because of problems with the ink smearing on the printable fabric I used once I got close to the end).
I also made myself a new purse, which I am delighted with. I use the “Candice Bag” pattern from Lazy Girl Designs. Rather than just use a plain piece of fabric for the pocket exterior, I spent a little more time and paper pieced a ring of flying geese using this free pattern, scaled down to a 10″ block.
There are plenty of interior pockets, too – one is a “fat” pocket to stash my Kindle, and maybe one day an iPad (I have to save my pennies!). I also added an interior zip pocket for makeup and other “lady things” that I don’t want to be out in plain view if I leave it unzipped. So, a fairly productive week. Next up I’m tackling a smaller quilt on commission, but I don’t think I’ll finish it before bedtime tonight.
