Also, wrapped up some VQB blocks. Every color is represented in these blocks, the finished quilt will be a well orchestrated concert of color.
Here's the Olivia Bag all done up in Valori Wells' new cotton linen collection Jenaveve. It actually traveled with HRQ to Road to California as part of the handbags display. The pattern is easy to follow and well written~and it's reversible! We have a great button selection at the shop so I chose these big metal buttons. It's a nice roomy bag and I really love the dimension the pleats give.
I've also finished a couple of mug rugs. I love the idea of having a special little cozy to have my breakfast or snack on. I received one as part of a swap I participated in, and I keep it next to my sewing machine for my water to sit on. . . so classy! I'm thinking these would make great gifts for Mother's Day and friends' birthdays; especially if I coordinate a mug to go with.
Another Monday awaits. The kids and I have counted the remaining 17 weeks of school until Summer break, we are all pretty excited. Enjoy your week~and make time to stitch something pretty!
