The PinkLady Sewtogether bag & an unexpected visitor

This past week just flew by,but then that is always the way when one is on vacation.

Recently my sister and I both had the same days off!  We planned a girls day out in the city,first stop,the leather store!  This is a bit of one piece I purchased.  It laid rolled up on my sewing room floor for a few weeks until…

the plan formed.  Pressing leather is not a good idea,a boning tool comes in very handy,as do lots of Wonder Clips!

Since this was my first time sewing with leather,I used cotton for the inside of the bag,and will probably continue to do so in future bags as well.  Mostly because the prints add a lot of interest/color to the bag. It also helps to cut down on the thickness when sewing it together.

A big plus,which you can see from this side shot!

The finished bag,Love how this turned out!  A complete success!  and my unexpected visitor…

Little Miss Audrey Lynn!  My granddaughter came for four days!!!

Sew Worth It

Life has been busy as always,and although I didn't have time to post the last two weeks…

Bloom block #5 is all finished,pretty happy with how these blocks are turning out!

This is block #5 in the ugly sweater SAL most of these I have purposely made "ugly"but this one I am really loving ;)

Here are all my blocks so far for the freeform rail fence quilt that I have been working on slowly a few blocks at a time.  The two smaller blocks are mistakes from not remembering what size I was making my blocks!  Since I am using fat quarters and fat eights instead of the suggested yardage…so they will end up on the back of the quilt.  Midas of course had to get right in the middle of everything!  Only 19 more blocks to go…

Check out my IG on side bar to see what else I have been up to lately.  Have a great week :)!
