Free at last!

As you know, I’m back from my vacation.  We went to Bethany.  It was a lovely 5 days, and I wish it didn’t have to end.  But end it did, and then the weekend was here, filled up with all sorts of things that are better left unmentioned.  And lots of sewing.  And then a busy week, and then a lovely wedding.  And then another busy week.  And now, we can relax.  Also, I think I may be boycotting weddings and all wedding related events for the next year, so, if you want to get married, and you want me there, keep that in mind ;).

Here are the bags that I made for the bridal party of said wedding.  I think they look great, and was sad to have to let them go.  I received many compliments on them.  I’m glad everyone was happy with them.  I made a small one for the flower girl as well, very adorable but not pictured, as it was done in a hurry last minute. 






















 They are all the same style, so I included some detail shots….

It feels so nice to get something finished up and out of my hands.  And now I can move on with other things.  Like (specifically related to sewing)…

  • Finishing the Advent calendar
  • Finishing the ZigZag quilt (I finished the top last weekend actually, and am in the process of quilting it! More on that later.)
  • Formulating Christmas and birthday gift plans

There are a thousand other things I also need to accomplish, which I will also get to, but I don’t need to bore you with those details.

The first fabrics came for the quilting bee.  Very exciting.  I’m working on a plan, and think I’ve got it, but I just need to figure out the math, which is escaping me.  Hopefully now that things have settled down, I’ll have a clearer mind.

    I am sure the bags were hard work, but they look great! I like your fabric choices for them. Can’t wait to see the zig zag quilt finished. Zig zags are some of my favorite quilts. =]

    Thanks! The bride actually picked out the fabrics specific to each of her bridesmaids. Gotta give credit where credit is due.
