I spent a couple of hours yesterday at my store making samples for one of the classes I'll be teaching this fall. There is a pattern that has been out for years called the Humbug Bag. I made three of them as examples of possible gifts for kids. One is made from yellow-gold ultrasuede, one from Pirate fabrics and one from a very girly-girl combination of a bright yellow print with cupcakes lined with a dark print that has shoes -- kicking high heels, in fact. :) They were fun to make ... but now _that_ task is done! (whew!)
I've been pretty much going in circles and trying to swim upstream since I got home from the MidWest. At least, it feels like that. :) I can't really tell if I'm making any progress 'cause every time I turn to look/see, I drift backwards. :P
Tomorrow some of us (seven or eight of my staff and I) are getting together at the store to barbecue and sew. I"m thinking I'll work on my Asian posy piece -- I want to frame it (off-center, of course:) with a graphic b&w print and quilt the devil into it. (grin). Maybe I"ll get some photos?
