Brrr … and a finish

Image result for Free Quilting Clip ArtIt’s cold for here …  and this picture is exactly what I want to do!!!

Yesterday, I puttered around, ironing pieces of fabric … pressing a zillion blocks …

I decided to take a break from quilting and binding and started working on the one project I started this year that I have to finish … a retreat bag – similar to one I made for my sister.

Then I realized that I cut 4″ corners, not 3″ corners … I did check the pattern and I know I saw 4″ … but that was for the distance up from the bottom for pocket placement.  Grrrr ….  Then, I came to terms with the fact that it will be a boxier bag … Then, I couldn’t find the zipper … I added the pockets to the lining … and decided that I should work on binding my “Summer Envy.”  But, I didn’t want to.

SEW … I found the zipper (it had fallen on the floor under my cutting table) … and I finished the retreat bag. The one on the left is the one with 4″ corners, the one on the right has the 3″ corners (which is how it’s suppose to be).


This bag was not a UFO – so I can’t count it as one … but I can include the fabric on my tally: 1 ¼ yards!
