I set aside a good part of the weekend to do some stitching. (I can't do paper crafting right now because my upstairs craft room is too hot.) I brought my sewing machine, etc. down to the family room and made up a couple of things.
Have you seen this book? I bought it at JoAnn's and it's full of the cutest little projects. I've been seeing amazing Japanese quilt magazines online, but I've hesitated to buy any. They're pricey with the postage, and (surprise) I don't read Japanese. But this book gives me a sample of what I might get with one of them.
This is my first project from the book. The construction directions were a little different from what I'm used to and I ended up making a few changes. Even though I would make a few more changes next time, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
The other project I made was this little drawstring bag from a tutorial on http://www.aquiltinglife.com/. It was fun choosing fabrics from my stash. I really enjoyed making it and I'm sure I'll make more. It would be perfect as a gift bag filled with.. well, just about anything!
Well, that's it for tonight. A little more quilting, some reading and then off to bed. Have a great week!
