This quilt top (banner size) has been on my "work in progress" pile for way too long! For years it has been waiting for a backing and quilting. I'm happy to say it is finally complete! I cannot remember the name of the pattern used, but I found it on http://www.debbiemumm.com/ some years ago. My original thought was to make a wall hanging, but it seems to have made it's way to the table. I used a combination of machine quilting and long stitching.

It's soon Auction day at school, and each year I like to sew something as my contribution. This year it is a springy, pink tote bag.
|Choosing the fabric|
|Pleated in the front|
|Inside pocket; snap closure|
|The right needle for the right job! I decided to try a new kind of strap on this one using vinyl.|
Fabric: Ivory Kona cotton, Kumari Garden Marala Pink
Pattern: Tohoku-tote found here, handbag straps.

Accessorize for spring! That was my theme for a little afternoon sewing. I love to wear a scarf -- winter, spring, fall -- pretty much any time of the year. Today, with the threat of ice and snow overnight, I thought it would be the perfect time to get ready to bring on some spring in the form of infinity scarves!
|This one is a knit, lacy fabric.|
|Fabric: Nest by Valori Wells|
|The top one (a bit hard to see) uses "Asian Circles" by Kaffe Fassett.|
|Is it possible to over-do it on scarves??|
