ok...there is too much flying around in my head. I have started too many projects and my sewing room is just a mess. That said...I did finish one bag today and promptly fell in love with it. It is Laurel Burch "Felines" with Moda Marbles accent and lining.
But (brilliant creative thought) I did all the topstitching with variegated thread thinking it would pick up all the great colors in the fabric. It looks rather weird to me today. I need to take a fresh look tomorrow.
Here is the bag....I really want to keep it. I had just enough fabric left over to do a thingie with it and found I had an old fabric covered button in my box and I got Garth to take it apart so I could re-use, recycle and up-cycle it!
Moving along....today I made hot dog and hamburger buns (thanks EJ). I have been making bread for years, but it never occurred to me to go beyond the gooshy-gummy ones from the store. We don't eat beef, so our soy-mushroom burger will be very happy bedding down in a homemade bun.
I need to get my fall quilt bound and on the bed before long. This is the most beautiful ufo I have.
I made the blocks for this quilt a year ago at our annual retreat in Truckee. Now, it is together, quilted and ready to for me to bind it. Only took a year to pull it together!
We are leaving on Monday morning for this year's retreat. Kay cannot come, so there will be Elly, Irene, Susan, Carol and me....makes five post-menopausal women having a sleep over for four days! That kind of fun will keep us young.
