It’s a new week and time to start on a couple of new projects.
First is the fabric at the bottom of the picture. I’m designing a new tote bag that will use grommets for the shoulder strap to go through. I have it all planned out in my head, now I just have to make it and get it all down in a pattern. The first bag is being made to try out my idea so it is going to be a prototype. The working name is “Lettie’s Bag”. Can you guess? It’s being made for a very nice lady named Lettie.
I also hope to start working on a Christmas quilt using blocks from a block exchange many years ago. This is the block I made, now I have to find all the other blocks so that I can start playing with them. They are all no doubt slightly different sizes so I will be adding sashing, nine patches and maybe a few Christmas trees to make it all come together. I’ll keep you posted when and if I get around to working on this.
Have a great week!
