I haven't written a post in what seems like forever - very unlike me. But in my defense I've been just a bit busy. I am in the fifth week of a mission trip and will be going home on Friday. As many of you know Jerry and I often serve at UMCOR Sager Brown in Baldwin, Louisiana and that's where we've been this last few weeks. Jerry is back at home but I'm still at the mission - he has another volunteer gig he's going to next week so he went home to get ready.
Unlike other times I've been here I didn't do much sewing this time. It's been a bit busier than usual and our groups have required more of my time - and I love what I do! I had big plans before I left home and brought 3 or 4 tops I wanted to get put together but that didn't happen. I did, however, do a couple of little things.
I made a little zippered bag with a vinyl window so I can see what's inside - love this! Originally I planned to make it a pencil bag for a grandchild but I decided a super hero fabric might be better received so I'm going to keep this one myself. It makes a perfect bag for my embroidery.
Quilt Taffy but I'll be making many more from my stash. There are two sizes in the pattern and I made the smaller of the two. I think the larger size would make a great makeup bag - and when I do that I'll use vinyl fabric for the lining so it will wipe clean. I have some cute red polka dot vinyl that will be perfect.
I also complete another of the wool candle mats from Primitive Gatherings - this one for the Independence Day celebrations.
The first thing I'm going to do when I get home is to head into my sewing room to work on my picnic quilt for the next blog hop? What's on your agenda?
