Time goes by so fast these days and with lots of work and teachers on strike for 3 weeks now (the kids have not been to school since before Easter and we still have to keep up with our work) crafting must take a step back. I do manage to make a few blocks here and there, so luckily there's a little progress to report... Though not much.
I made this wonderful bag in just two evenings. It's based on Stehanie @ loftcreations latest pattern Caity Did! I love how big it is and especially the little criss-cross feature on the front. Such a fun little detail I wouldn't have thought of in a million years.
It's perfect for me - I'm a true shoulder-bag-kind-of-girl - always carrying lots of stuff around. It will be great for quilting supplies, shopping - even a fun addition to my normally quite classic work wardrobe. I will start putting it to good use already tomorrow morning that's for sure :)
There was supposed to be a lovely button too, but I skipped that part. Busy little me never closes my bags anyway. Would have looked awfully cute though. This is a little more simple...
Another project I'm working a little on I's my EPP project I started last summer. With the new job time was suddenly very limited and I couldn't see the project finish anytime soon. So I decided to start adding borders. I selected a block from Modern Blocks and are halfway now. I've asked the members of my Bee to each make a block for me. When I get the last ones I should have enough to finish it and then start thinking about the next border.
This will be great... I can just feel it in my bones :)
