You know the saying that time flies when you're having fun. Well, I have been busy for sure!
First we celebrated the 22th birthday of BikerSon with the best cake ever and a surprise diner/party, all organised, cooked etc. by his sisters (not the cake, but they prepared a complete buffet for the guests!)
Before and after the weekend I made lots of the zippered pouches. As i said, they are quite addictive :)
I made the blue and red ones twice, and gave 3 away as a present. One red one contains all my hairpins and such, a plaid one is in my dresser and another red is halfway done for Quilting DD. Tomorrow evening I promised to teach Quilting neighbour...The tutorial link to Janet's blog is added in the sidebar. I also bought a zipper for a pencilcase. Now that the zipperphobia is gone, there's no stopping me! Meanwhile I practiced machinestippling on the pouches.When quilting straight lines, the fabric shifted a lot, so perhaps I'd better save some money for a walkingfoot.
The 3rth JellyRoll Quilt-a-long block was posted yesterday (link in sidebar) but to be honest ,I don't like it very much ,so I haven't made it yet. I'm a bit concerned that the blocks will not make a coherent quilt in the end. I will sew the block ofcourse, but probably not today!
