Friday Night Sew-In: June
I participated in the Friday Night Sew-In hosted by Crafty Vegas Mom this month. I had big plans! Then I went to the fabric store, got stuck in traffic, practiced music with our church music director, ate supper, folded and put away laundry, and took a walk (a necessary thing these days!). Then I had to frog what I'd been working on (rip out stitches - rip it, rip it). So I didn't actually sew anything till about 10:00 last night. This is what I got done:
It's the beginnings of a tote made by the Mill House Inn Tote Bag tutorial. I'm loving the mix of fabrics, but I sure do need to learn free motion quilting so I can do something more imaginative than straight lines! This is made from my little stash of Rebel Roses I bought on our trip to Seattle a couple of weeks ago. I have plans for a journal cover to match.
Thanks to Bobbi for hosting this month and giving me the motivation to at least get a little bit of sewing done on what turned out to be a very busy Friday evening!
