Bag Swap Sneak Peak

Friday I went shopping to choose the fabric for my bag swap tote bag. I found this lovely fabric to pair with a stitchery. I know my swap partner will be happy with her tote bag. Now I need to make the bag.
Yesterday I picked my antique sewing table. It's gorgeous. I will post photos tomorrow. I also visited a quilt friend and we went to her LQS. I was very good at the store. I purchased three FQs, two for projects and one just because I like it; a Quilter's Home magazine; a Sew-by-Row book and a beaded pin kit to get jump started on my beading.

Today I finished my Valori Wells challenge project. I should be able to post photos of it later this week.

Again, I say thank you to all the wonderful words of encouragement I've received from many of you this past week. All of you have helped me get through a difficult week. Hopefully this coming week will be better.

Happy stitching!
Sweet P

The fabric you chose is splendid. It amazes me at how organized you are and the number of projects you complete. You are always an inspiration in my book!

I pulled fabrics for my Val Wells challenge today - I am so excited to start! Yes I know I'm late, but when Nancy said the deadline is extended I said woo hoo I'm still in!!

You know, when things get bad, as they often do, the good thing is that things can usually only get better :) I really hope calm and peace are becoming more frequent in your mind :)
