What a WILD day!!!!! We had so much fun and everyone went home with their Chubby Charmer bag almost complete!!!!!!!!!!!!! Have a look......
|Katheleen was making a different bag and this is what she accomplished in the day! Looks like a new do!|
|Sharron made her bag a different size (smaller) and I love the fact that she used the same fabric - half from the right side and half from the wrong side.. It is gorgeous!|
|Sharon made this bag to match a smaller bag that she made to put all her "little stuff" in. Now she has a bag to put all the BIG stuff in along side her "little stuff" bag.|
|Maureen had a bunch of nurse fabric which she used to make her bag. She used a pretty cool decorative stitch to "quilt" the bag.|
|Karen - classic red/white. I believe she was completely done when she left! How fun is that!!!!|
|Claudette used up some OLD OLD charm squares back from the days when Benartex had a charm club. I remember that - YEARS ago.|
|Maria used a SOLID piece of "denim look" fabric for her bag. I love that fabric!!!|
|Mary - classic red/white and blue. But the DOTS on the inside make the bag!!!!|
|Susan and these GORGEOUS batiks!!!!|
|Susan wanted a few different things like velcro on the inside pocket which I was able to supply in a MATCHING c olour no less and then she thought she might like to add a clip to put her keys on. And I had those little gizmos too!!!!|
We had a great lunch catered by Mary D. I think everyone had a lot of fun and the best part - those bags are almost done. I think Lynn's wasn't quite in the same state of completion, but I will see her today and maybe get that picture!!!!
After everyone left - I came back downstairs and cleaned up. OK - so everything was tidy, but I put away the tables that I didn't need - THREE got put away. The rest got configured back into their normal spots. I decided to not change it as I like it that way and it functions.
Then I put all the stuff on one table that needed to be put away or what I need to work on in the next couple of days. And this is what the room looks like now. Well - what it looked like last night. It changes by the minute!!!
|Studio - neat and tidy!!!|
Then I was off to the long arm to get another quilt done for a customer that I am delivering today.
|Customer quilt - DONE|
And I had company - look who came to visit, although she looks very bored!!!! Or is that her princess and the pea look???
|Little Sammy!!!!! So cute!!!!|
I was cleaning up some photos as well and this is a knitted tea cozy that Elaine made for me. So cute and looks cute on my orange tea pot!!!
|Knitted tea cozy|
|Yes - these three are a "bit" dated for my liking.|
But there were three pieces big enough to make the Chubby Charmer so that is cut out and the main part of the bag sewn back together - I will show you that when I am done. I am making two. And those two bags are on the work tables (with not much else) so I can FOCUS since there isn't a lot to clutter up my mind.
I feel pretty relaxed about my schedule - that means I am forgetting something??? We will see. I do have a lot of quilts I want to get quilted this week - hopefully the last big week of customer stuff and then I have a few of my own I want to do before Christmas. Where is that scheduled "to do" list that M showed me??? Got to make up one for this week.
On that note - I am on my way to the gym.
Have a great day!!!!
