NSM Days 7 - 13

Wow, I am a bit behind on my posting of my sew every day during National Sewing Month projects. I finished Tumalo Trails, not on Monday like I'd planned. It was finally finished on Thursday.

I sewed every day, just not much as I wanted to. Instead I canned beans and froze broccoli. I'm happy to have that finished.

Since finishing the quilt top, I've been Swooning. This is Vivian for daughter DeeDee. She wanted a cool bag to carry her work stuff in. She wants a cross body strap on it but I don't have the hardware for that. I'll give her the bag tomorrow and the strap when it's finished.

I love fun pockets. The pattern for Vivian calls for one inside pocket with a zipper. I put in a zipper pocket on each side. I used orange zippers and this fun fabric for the inside of the pockets. On Taylor's bag I used a fun print on one side and elk and deer on the other.  

In the evening I worked on Millefiore. Little by little It's getting there. Mostly this block spent time in my lap while I looked at it. ;)

I'm excited to see what this week brings. The next project is laying on the sewing table ready to start.

Love that BIG Tumalo Trails quilt. What wonderfully fun fabrics for that great bag. I can't imagine DeeDee being anything other than over the moon about it. That block is worth sitting and admiring. I did the same on this side of the screen...sat and admired it. :-)
