Yesterday, I got my block put together and the embroidery design traced on for the Raggedy and Friends BOM. I am enjoying this one. I decided to use my blue wash out pen to trace the design. I bought some red pens to trace things for my redwork, but do you think I could find them? NO! I knew where they were before I started cleaning. I knew cleaning meant disaster. LOL Any way, here is the first block all ready to do the redwork. Ok, now I can't get my picture where I want it to be. Either Blogger is having issues or I need to take a break. (sigh)
Ok, this is where it wants me to type, so this is where I will type. I am just getting tired of nothing working tonight.
I also got my charm square quilt along charms cut and ready to make half square triangles. I decided to work on a few fun things before I put Jeremy's quilt together.
Lisa asked me what a flimsy is. Lisa, I tried to reply to you, but you are a no reply commenter. A flimsy is
just a term given to a top that is pieced but not sandwiched or quilted. I learned the term from reading other quilting blogs. I had never heard of it either. (grin)
Kevin and I went to Ryan's for lunch today. It was good. I think I did pretty good on picking healthier foods. I tried to eat the healthiest I could. Of course, I had to have a piece of coconut pie and a little ice cream. I love coconut pie. Skipping that is just not an option. LOL
We also stopped by Hobby Lobby. I found some great fabrics in there for making my new Bow Tucks bags. I bought enough to make 3 bags. I do have 3 daughters, but at least one of these will be mine. I can make another one later. I love these black and beige fabrics.
The roll of black on top and the fabric on the right top of the picture were already in my stash. I fell in love with this red star fabric. I wanted it, but only planned to get enough fabric today to make one bag. While trying to decide what to do, I sent my hubby down the street to Office Max. I could tell he just wasn't feeling the fabric dilemma. LOL With him out of the way, I decided to get the red too.
Once again, the roll on top and the right front fabric were already in my stash. Ok. I have enough to make 2 bags. I need to go, but wait, look at that darling pink and green fabric. Oh, I just have to have that.
The beige fabric on top and the right front fabric were in my stash, but look how pretty that middle fabric is, with the pink and beige flowers and all the green. I had to have it, didn't I? I sure hope I like making these Bow Tucks bags, after purchasing fabric to make 3 of them. (another eye roll) Kevin never said a word while I silently sat in the passenger seat petting my pretty fabric on the way to Ryan's, but I know he was rolling his eyes too. LOL
We had rain again today. It rains every weekend. As Kevin said, we might as well live in the tropics. I don't want it to stop raining, but one weekend a month without any would be nice. Well, I guess I will try to get this to post. No promises, since things have not been going exactly as planned tonight. Thanks for visiting. Please come again.
