|The supplies! Finally cutting into my stack of Shelburne Falls|
|One page of cutting instructions. Everything gets a letter classification in my world. I know, Geek is the word.|
|Jenn tackling cutting|
First came the straps. If the straps are any indication, this bag is going to be sturdy! The we got into doing some Quilt As You Go piecing for the outside pockets.
So far so good. I am loving the Essex Linen with the prints. Oh and pleasant surprise, when I pulled out the stack of Sheburne Falls from my stash, I thought they were fat quarters. But when I opened them up, they were 1/2 yard cuts. Merry Christmas to me!!!
We are both anxious to keep working on this, so Jenn will be back on Saturday to keep at it. I am likely a bit delusional, but hoping we can finish this weekend!
So what are you working on this week? I have seen such amazing "wrap up" and resolution posts today. So great to see all of the amazing accomplishments for the year and have a chance to get excited about the new!
ps - must include a photo of our helper
|Penny loves a good scrap bin,and apparently the Christmas lights which I just caught her trying to eat in this pic. She looks guilty doesn't she!|
I am inspired by these words I saw today:
“For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.”
