Sunday Accomplishments

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.

I also put a clasp on another Tila I finished.  I just picked up a clasp for it last week but didn't take a pic.  You can see the finished bracelet here minus the clasp.  

Hubby left for golf and I'm off to meet a friend for of my favorite meals!!!  Laundry to do when I get home.  What fun!
