I don’t know if it’s the heat or what, but my concentration has gone to hell. It just seems that I have a lot going on in my creative mind and it will not settle down to just one project, it is all over the place which make for nothing getting completed.
Now I have pulled out bag patterns all over the house a could not decide what I wanted to do or if I had all the material I need to complete them. I have enough fabric, but not enough things like cover buttons (don’t even have a cover button do-hacky) zipper in the colors I need, or not enough fusible flees. I really do not what to run to the fabric store at this time, put I know I will when I decide to leave the house and hit the heat.
I have not been ideal, Tom has had me making pillows for him for his gift baskets that he sells.
So far I have made around 13 pillows and only have two more to go. I think I am in a better mind today to complete some other things that I have on my mind to do.
I started this bag yesterday (Thursday) and realized before attaching the lining I forgot to put the pocket on, so I have to work on that today. This is a jelly roll tote, which calls for cover buttons I do not have put I will improvise something, I do have other buttons.
I always clean up my work space before going to bed, it helps me to work better in a clean and organized space. Well as you can see below, I did not clean up my mess last night, so this is something I need to do before embarking on any other sewing expedition.
I have one more Red, White & Blue block that I would like to do (my own creation) for the blog hop which I will be posting July 8th. I might venture outside and run down to my neighbors yard and take photos of my blocks. I notice on the blog hops that they are taken nature background shots of there blocks and they look so nice. I even plan to do my first give away. As you can see from my work table that I could almost give away everything.
If you have not stop by the Red, White & Blue blog hop just click on the button on the side of my blog and it will give you a look and all the participants, or just click here for Jane,s Fabric and Quilt there is a list of bloggers in the hop.
Since this is a early blog for me I still have a few days off from work, I don’t go back until Tuesday, I have time to finish at least one or two bags.
So until tomorrow or when every I get a chance to blog.
