Sunday Stash - Bag Lady

A couple finishes this week with the 5 pillowcases I had cut a few weeks ago and a yard and a half for the lining of a big old bag I’m doing  a pattern review on.  I’ll have pictures of that to show in October.

I also got Allison’s quilt top for the Twilter Round Robin, and knew exactly what I wanted to do, so I got that finished as well!

And then we had Saturday Sampler block pick up, so I knocked those out as well. And I picked up the sashing kit for Mum Medallion, so that added some yardage, but also some leaders and enders to piece together another top from a Christmas panel.

  1. I haven’t been over to your log for a little while so hadn’t seen your new header. I like it, in fact I think it would make a great fabric.

    A yard and a half for a bag lining?! That is a big bag.

  2. Hi Pam,
    This is the first time I have left a comment about your podcast. I love it, Quilting, Cat tales,(or should that be cat tails), and family ups and downs. I am an Aussie, some places I am found as Casperccat and others Diane.
    Keep up the great Podcast and have a great week!!!

      1. Hi Philipa,
        That sounds like it could be great fun, and maybe Pam needs a bit of good karma haunting in her future because her tales always put a smile on my face.

  3. I was AWOL for awhile from everything except work with a little bit of stressed out kid thrown in. Seriously, a terrible month. The good part is that I just listened to about a month of YOUR life and you had me laughing hysterically. Also, I thought “OMG! I turned my back for one minute and Pam used all the fabric and finished all the projects ever. I know you finish a lot, but WOW!

    Listening to a month of your life all at once makes it hard to post on the particular episode or post, so you get one long comment.

    I also like to hear my name in your podcast, so thanks for the shout-out about replacing jelly roll strips (glad someone was paying attention. 😉 ) in order to add interest. It also makes the project your own. Of course, I am particular about my shout-outs, so I try to make my comments interesting or laugh-worthy so you say more than just my name. I know I am a diva. My husband tells me that all the time in one way or another

    I am also growing my hair out from a longish bob with bangs to a longish bob with no bangs. My bangs are past the sticking in my eye stage, but now they just almost long enough to reach my ponytail, but not quite so they just flutter around my face in an annoying manner and make me look tired and old.I am happy not to have bangs, though I still technically do, but the whole growing out process is terrible. Lots of headbands in my life right now.

    If the GATE program is just more homework, I would try something extracurricular (I know that means logistics issues) such as lego robotics or girl rock band. Adding more homework isn’t always a reward.

    Great Catsby: one word-wig. That is all.

    Re: Ben Aronovich books. I read these and agree that they are grown-up Harry Potter books. I don’t think it was me who recommended them, because I read them in, I think, 2013. I remember being at a conference and running out the battery of my phone reading them on my Kindle app between sessions. I got them out of the library and have slowly started to buy them on audio, because I think they are detailed enough to which to listen again. I think that I would get some other points out of them. You might also look at Bristol House. It has the same feel without the police force. England. Ghosts. Modern day peeps trying to figure out some weirdnesses leaking into the modern era from the past.

    Also, thanks for the Sand recommendation. I’ll get that for the Y.M. for Christmas (yes, already thinking about gifts). He liked the other ones and he enjoys that apocalyptic type of book.

    I liked your episode on using panels. I have noticed a lot of panels coming out with new quilt lines and wondered about that. Have you seen the giant peacock panel? Didn’t you do a giant peacock panel quilt at some point? Yes, I’ll go search on your blog.

    Later, gator. Hope you had fun at retreat.
