Summer Gifts and
summer not. Sorry. It's an old family joke.
I need to make some gifts for some summer occasions, and after tidying up the sewing room (somewhat), I made a list of these gifties and of some other odds and ends that I need to take care of, and am going to spend May dealing with this list because I really don't like to sew under pressure at the last minute. I'll return to Bill's Baskets and Farmer's Wife and Caramel and Indigo once these are out of the way.
First up was finishing the 9 patches for the CW swap and once that was done I moved on to make a shoofly block for each participant and then crossed that off the list.
Then I dug into my William Morris stash and made this tote bag for one of the gifts. It went together like a dream with some good stiff Pellon interfacing, and I had fun with it.
Back to the list to see what's next.
