I'm not completely sure how I managed to say, "Yes. Yes. Yes and yes" to everything that's on my schedule, but I must have. Funny how that works. You think, "Oh, that such-and-such commitment is weeks away. I've got this-and-that going on, but I'll be able to handle such-and-such too." And then, wham! This-and-that goes on while such-and-such comes up. And there I am scratching my head, wondering, "How could I ever have thought I could do such-and-such too?!"
Not that one.
This is me.
I made another small zipper bag, this time using 1-1/2" squares I keep in a basket beside my sewing machine. Whenever I need a pair of leaders or enders (see Bonnie Hunter's explanation) I sew these 1-1/2" squares together.
I nabbed a few patches to make the outside of my zipper bag.
With fusible fleece inside, and swirly quilting, the bag holds its shape well.
Three bags so far, and I have ideas for a few more, for Christmas gifts.
My design wall has seen lots of hexagons lately. This Coral Seas quilt top was made with 6" hexagons using the Hex 'n More ruler. It needs quilting. Then at next week's First Time Quiltmaking class I will use it to demonstrate how to sew binding to a quilt.

Austin's visit last weekend included a trip to Fantastic Sam's. I loves me a man with short hair! These weekend visits find us appreciating, but too-quickly counting down the days to the end of the month, when our little Florida family moves.
Soon the pitter-patter of little feet will no longer resound in our house, and aren't these cute feet? These are Austin's first sandals. We were concerned that he wouldn't like the thong. But any discomfort was immediately overshadowed by the alligators on the inside sole, and one on each strap. Who doesn't like wearing alligator sandals?
