Hmmm, what am I doing?
On the sewing front I started another bag because the first one was just so much fun. I am using Elizabeth Hartman's pattern again because it is such a great pattern! I used a home decor weight fabric (from the thrift store, I might add) for the bottom and the top. That is the small black and white check. I used the same for the facing so by the time I got that altogether, it was just too thick on top. So I ripped the facing off and I will use quilting cotton to face the bag with. Then I will be a happy camper. I am back to work this week and think that this bag might just be a bunch of fun to lug my junk back and forth in.
And I started and finished a vintage sheet quilt for the medical room bed at school. They had a bunch of those scratchy grey blankets on the medical room bed. Yuck. That is the last thing a little sick child wants to be snuggled up with. I have completely forgotten to take pictures so I must do that.
I also transformed with Husband's expert help...
into 28 quarts of bread and butter pickles. We like our pickles.
So that is my work in progress list for the past while. Happy Wednesday! Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for work in progress Wednesday and the Needle and Thread Network.
