Friday Night Sew In Report

Well Friday night was pretty well a bust for me.  I was exhausted after a long week at work and other than about fifteen minutes working on the layout for my Spring themed postcard for Sheila, I did nothing even slightly related to sewing. 

But the whole week wasn’t a wash-out…  I put together one flower using the second round hexies I received from Jenny for February in the Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap

And I made these blocks for Lisa from Saskatchewan for the Canadians Quilt Bee.  I love these + and x blocks – they are so much fun to make.

And yesterday my friend Linda P. and I went to a class where we got detailed instruction on how to make the Sew Together bag (pattern by Sew Demented).  The pattern was duly purchased from Craftsy where you can purchase it too if you want to make yourself one of these beautiful babies!

Here is my completed bag.  Notice FOUR zippers (three inside pockets and the outer zip), full binding, a little pin cushion, and there is also a needle keep on the opposite inside wall.

I know…. my fabric choices are bright and busy, but It turned out beautiful.  And I have been wanting to use the Love Bird fabric in something for a long time.  Smile 

As you can see it is lovely and sunny here these days and our snow is melting.  I must get a new photo for my header…

I hope the snow is melting for you too - especially if you live in Eastern Canada.  I must be off and finish that postcard as it needs to be in tomorrow’s mail.

  1. Lovely projects! Great hexies and blocks, too. Don't you just love the Sew Together bag? I followed the tutorial that Quilt Barn so graciously shared on their web site and that made it ever so much easier. I loved picking out all the different fabrics to make them scrappy and before I knew it I had sewn four of them! lol They have made great gifts.

  2. The bag is beautiful and I love the hexi flower. Here are the fruit trees in full blossom and my street looks amazing. I'll have to take some pics and updated my blog. I did not miss the winter at all...

  3. Lovely hexie, super bright bag, and the background snow, perfect. Down here mornings are cool, 2 frosts so far, and we lit the fire yesterday, maybe the earliest for some years.,

  11. I love the way you take your photos with your sewing on the snow. The sewing pouch is beautiful-- I was very lucky to have received one as a gift from a fellow blogger--there is no way I would attempt it-- I have enough problems with 1 zipper, let alone 4.
