Yesterday was a productive day. I did some cleaning then headed to my sewing room. Lion's don't play until tonight (Tiger's are on Wed.) so I wasn't missing football. .
I want to get started on making some more snap bags for Christmas. This is the silk dupioni that I had free motion quilted. It's only 4" x 5" but a good size to fit in a purse or even for putting jewelry in if you travel. OK, I'm trying to think of ways folks might use this bag! I made two but only took a pic of one.
Last night I put away my embroidery patchwork quilt top and got back to hex's. I love having different hand work...yes, I get bored easily!
The left side shows rows that are all stitched with the paper removed (English paper piecing method). The next 3 rows are sewn together and the rest of the right side are the hex's sewn but not sewn together. Make sense?
I still have about 8 more rows of individual hex's that will be added. The piece should measure approximately 9" x 30+"...let's hope.
And my last accomplishment from yesterday was to sew the clasp on my black tila bracelet.
Hubby left for golf and I'm off to meet a friend for breakfast...one of my favorite meals!!! Laundry to do when I get home. What fun!
