What I've Been Working On

I can finally show a few of the projects I've been working on lately. First up is the bag for the Snickerdoodle Bag Swap partner, Bev at Kainga Happenings. The pattern came from Bend The Rules Sewing by Amy Karol. I had the striped fabric in my stash and wanted to work with a new fabric. I chose this green embroidered linen. I enjoyed making the bag and I'm happy with the finished bag.
With a few of the leftover pieces I made a companion wallet from Leanne Beasley's Romancing The Road Trip book.
I finished the Hope block from Gail Pan's A Christmas Wish BOM.
I still have May's block Peace block to trace and stitch.
I finished the top for DS #2's lap quilt.
And the companion lap quilt for his GF. I used navy blue and white Kona cotton and chose coordinating fabrics from the same fabric line.
Today I made a couple items for a Kitchen Swap. No photos as the recipient reads my blog. I should get more sewing time over the next week. I have four of the next seven days off. Woohoo!

Thanks for stopping by and happy stitching!
