Summer Stitching :: ' breaking for quick projects '
No matter how much I love piecing all those bits/pieces of fabric into a quilt top -- I find that after a couple of hours - a 'piecing' break is needed. This past weekend I used my breaks for two 'quick projects'
I'm slowly overcoming my fear of ruffles with this book (purchased with birthday money - 'sweet' !)::
I've made this bag before and it's the perfect size for the Farmer's Market, big and roomy -- but, I wanted to 'downsize' it just a bit -- to a size more suited for a 'tween' grand-daughter. So very pleased with the 'redux' on this pattern --
Now I need to make 4 more for remaining grand-daughters (and maybe a bag for each of my sisters?!). The bags will make wonderful gift bags for birthdays and Christmas (a multi-tasking gift!). Now to dig out more fabric from my stash !
