During the Be a Hexie Queen Blog Hop,
I had the good fortune to win a beautiful Hoffman fat quarter bundle
from Words & Stitches.
Thank you, Beth!
It was waiting for me when I arrived in Texas.
As soon as I handled it, I knew what I wanted to make.
I don't have an e-reader, I just liked the bag.
I don't even carry a bag. I just like to make them!
It's a cross-shoulder bag and a fat quarter friendly project.
I was lucky to find a button that mirrors the pattern in the lining
which, of course, I didn't photograph.
I do wish I'd paid a little closer attention to the pattern
in the main fabric when I was cutting.
This was my first time following a WpCP pattern
and it was so well written.
I learned how to make hidden pockets,
and if you follow the link,
WpCP has a great tutorial.
It's amazingly simple.
I predict more of these bags in my future!
I'm linking up to Terry's Treasures today
to show my 2 hastily photographed Goodnight Irene Sew-Along rows.
I find these blocks are a great leader/ender project
or are perfect when I becomed overwhelmed
and need something simple to ground me.
I have a lot of projects on the go
and can't help starting new ones,
and sometimes that makes me wander around in circles.
Of course, there's a bird.
Don't want you to be too disappointed,
although it's photographed from quite a distance.
Female Golden-fronted Woodpecker

On today's plate are bibs and burp cloths
for a last minute, impromptu baby shower tomorrow
for a set of twins that almost didn't make it!
They are thriving now,
so it's safe to part-eee and celebrate their arrival.
Have a stellar day!
Stay safe and warm.
Thanks for visiting.
