This is the bag that won 2nd place in the wearables category at the GVQC show last weekend, which included a $50 cash prize~! I spent that and more on Marcia Derse fabrics at one of the vendor booths!
I made another Boho Bag simultaneously. It is called "Sweet Noel". The image I used is a wintry little girl. I have a close friend that had a sister named Noel. She drowned in the Tonawanda Creek in Batavia at a young age. It just fit. The colorway is not my usual and I did have a harder time working on it. It is still a beautiful bag.
I thoroughly enjoy working on CQ projects. There is a real creative element involved in every piece. I would be happy to entertain a commission if you care to preserve a special memory.
I finally finished my last obligation to HGTV RRRR today! I have been working on this row between the show quilt finishing. I made hexi wreaths from the focus fabric. Stitched to WOW fabrics and finished with more WOW's to make a log cabin block. There are over 20 pieces per 6" block!
I have learned
- Child labor is awesome~! Ian & Darcy weeded, mowed, cut and dragged tree limbs and moved boxes upstairs for me in the last 2 days. Appreciated!
