Flying, Quilting, Sewing (day 2/231)

Well, here I go on my attempt at blogging at least once every day.  The 2/231 in the post title refers to my 2nd day of the 231 days that were left in 2014 when I started.  I'd have my fingers crossed about this little journey but that would make typing more difficult.  ;-)


I actually made my bed this morning!  This is definitely something I usually avoid.  I also scrubbed down my tub/shower before I took my morning shower.  It was so nice to be in a scum free environment.  There's a load of laundry in the dryer.  Next up...putting the games back in the game closet (I need a step ladder to do this and now I have my own!).

While I was writing this post, I hung up the dry laundry and started another load!


Months ago, I finished a quilt wallhanging and finally hung it up last week.  Remembering to purchase a curtain rod last week might have had something to do with it.  Here's the quilt:

The pattern is my own design.  It was a way to use up some of my precut scraps.  I cut up my scraps following Bonnie Hunter's Scrap Users System.


Last night I completed a tote bag.  This one is called Sausalito by A Quilter's Dream.  I used 6 fat quarters from my stash.  I was planning on replacing my normal purse with this one but this is definitely a large tote bag.  I think I'm going to use it as a project bag.  I like to work on small stuff when DH and I go places.  My "car project" used to be crocheted snowflakes.  I think I'll go back to working on more of them.  Anyway, here's a picture of my new tote:

Happy Stitching!
