Finishing and donating

the living room being taken apart for cleaning after donating the old sofa. New ones arrive in a day or the carpet can be rotated and general rearranging can now occur!

But, I have other "irons in the the fire"! Making brandied cherries...I pitted the cherries a day ago then had to wait until I could get the canning done ( today!).

One last photo of my sunshine quilt before sending it off to it's new home....draped over our mailbox in the morning sunshine!

I've finished cutting out the pieces and will now stitch up the " ART STUDENT TOTE" from Anna Maria Horner's pattern. It will be very roomy....maybe even large enough to carry some small canvases! Here are my fabrics.....back later with the bag!

Meanwhile here is a shot of my sewing space.....lots going on!

The art student tote is ready for lining, with more pockets! But I am ready for bed now so tomorrow it will get its crazy, "almost leapord print" lining!


************Mid morning on (below) is the crazy lining! Finished at last!************

Yes, yes, I will enjoy using this!

Thanks, Anna Maria Horner!

It's so nice to get new furniture. I can't wait to see what you chose! Love the cherries and the new bag you're making. You have a wonderful place to sew. I'm ready to start a project...not sure what! The the quilt is gorgeous...your cousin will be thrilled! Sweet hugs my friend, Diane

Oh fun - new furniture. Your bag is going to be wonderful and I love the outdoor picture of your quilt.

That bag is great! Strong and roomy....good for toting supplies short distances...from parking lot to classroom!
Next week is my class!
