A Quick One

      Can't stay and chat today. The whole focus thing is really hard for me. I much prefer the chatting and stopping to see how you are.

The basting on the beast.

The beast is being quilted. I am getting some weird u-turns where instead I would like crisp square corners. I don't know what I am doing differently but it seemed a good place to stop.

Just a little lack of focus...and a distraction last night. See how hard this focus is for me?

That pile of jean scraps from last January will be made into bags-I don't want to buy wrapping paper for the few gifts I will give this year. I like that it is reversible. But it's kind of boring. I like the size but the straps could be shorter. The recycled market bag . At least my lack of focus was productive.:)

Be creative, my friends.


  1. wow so that batik look you did? i love that colleen!!!!

  2. What a great idea for wrapping paper-I love that bag. Denim always looks great!

  3. No sorry guys-that was a commercial batik. That is one of my goals -to learn how to make a beautiful batik. But I have a drawerful of small pieces that need to be used up and thought this would work.

    batiks are so beautiful!
