Back at the beginning of June I started making a bag with my own hand-picked half jelly roll.
I’ve pieced and ripped and pieced and quilted. (I'm very slow at quilt-in-the-ditch; I have my machine on the slowest speed and still can't quite manage to stay in the ditch!)
Here’s the carcass of the bag (front, back and sides)
and the pockets.
I have also made the handle but forgot to take a photo.
My teacher gave me homework to move this project forward but I’ve been side-tracked.
We are having such gorgeous spring-like weather today that I am going to sit out in the sun (yes, it’s still the middle of winter) and do some hand stitching!
The same teacher also takes a monthly embroidery class. On Wednesday I started this and I worked on it last night (stem stitch for the inquiring minds that want to know).
Can you guess what it’s going to be?
