Now the week is here, and I had no idea what to sew for myself when I realized "today is the day!" I'm totally on board with the glass of wine, but since I give away 99% of the quilts, bags, mug rugs, etc. I make, I had no idea what to make for ME!
Luckily, Debbie listed her goals for the week, and one is a new bag. I have two test-sew bags in the queue, so I don't want to make a new bag. But wait a minute -- there IS that "Sweet Retreat" bag I started at Quilting in the Pines two, maybe three years ago. I know it's in a plastic bin -- where is it?
Found it, hiding under My Little Sailor's loom, covered with dust. See?
When I pull it out, I realize it isn't far from finished:
I even have the binding made.
The pattern calls for 6-8" gussets on each side, but I think I'll alter it to be nearly flat. I want it to carry my big cutting mat and junior size Sew Steady table, plus maybe a ruler or two.
Now, if it just weren't 7:55 am, I could pour that glass of wine and get to work on my Selfish Sewing project!
