Getting Ready ...

Going on a little trip soon and one day of the trip will be sewing with a group of friends making Amy Butler's "Weekender Travel Bag".  Wanted to do a little prep so that I could jump right in to making the bag - took longer than I thought to cut out all the pieces and quilt the main parts of the bag and the outside pockets.  Will be great to see all the different bags when they're finished.


I'm so looking forward to meeting up with some old friends and meeting the other girls from our on-line group.

I love slicing up fabric and, after searching through my pattern folders, have plans for a few quilt tops. First to be cut out is "Basket Case" designed by Cluck, Cluck, Sew.  I still have plenty of this Oh Cherry Oh fabric and need to use it up.  


These "Sew Together Bags" are taking quite a while to make - well, procrastination is the real reason.  Hope to finish them off soon.

You'll need a holiday after preparing for your holiday, Lynda - and probably one afterwards as well! Have a lovely time.
