I still have to put a button and closure on it, but I'm still calling it done. My daughter needs a big bag like this and loved it, so she and I are both making one today. She's very excited to set up her machine and sew with me. Cool, huh?
Next up...I have been hand quilting a top I made a while back. The quilting is completely finished and now it just needs a binding!
I had no idea how much I would enjoy hand quilting. To actually do the whole quilt....I'm thrilled. I can see more of this in my future. Here's the back, it's hard to see the quilting though.
I also love the Grandmothers Flower Garden but I was intimidated by the hand sewing of all those hexagons. No more! I can do it....wooohoooo! So, I'm making these flowers. So...that's what's been keeping me from posting on here. Is that a good excuse? Giggle! I've also been doing the usual life stuff. My friend, Val, asked me to help with a dinner for an entire town near me yesterday. So ... we cooked that all day yesterday. Roast beef, real mashed taters, corn, green beans, rolls, gravy, and a lot of desserts. It was a great turn out and was to benefit the Southern Links Trailways. Another reason I love love love living in a small town. I really enjoy all the community events I get to be a part of. Our annual Easter Egg hunt is April 4th, and that's the big event. We had over 600 people last year. 4000 eggs are a lot of eggs. They are plastic and stuffed with prize buttons and candy. Our local senior group stuffs them all for us, so we only have to hide them. A local Christian campground lets us use their facilities and it's a great time! I'm looking forward to it already! I'll be exhausted on April 5th! Ha!
Well.....Cindy bag time now. So....I'm off! Happy National Quilting Day to all!
