first, the finish:
I love the fabrics, I love how this type of useful handmade iteams are starting to pop up all over my house, and I love that those plastic bags are out of the fishtank. The boys are hoping this means we will be filling the tank with goldfish now :)
By the way, this was the bit of patchwork my machine ate a few weeks ago when it got hungry. Remember that? I do ;)
I used a tutorial from the Moda Bakeshop to make my bag, but I did add an extra row of charm squares to make it longer (a 10 gallon fishtank holds a lot of bags, I wanted to make sure I had room for them all)
and the WIP? a 62"x75" sampler I have been working on for ages for my MIL.
Does anyone else find the back of a 505 spray and fix can scary? I ought to save that thing for Halloween. "It was a dark and stormy night. She reached for her can of 505 spray and fix ...."
I know, I know, I'm just a big chicken. :)
Anyway, here this baby is all basted:
So what have you been sewing on?
I'm linking to Fabric Tuesday at Quilt Story and WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced. Two link parties, one post. It's kind of like that two birds, one stone thing, you know? ;)
You can check out the buttons on my sidebar if you are so inclined.
Happy Tuesday/Wednesday to you!
And if you are wondering, my kitchen is still standing ;)
