I know I said I was only going to work on the Halloween Tote Bag for the kid but I haven’t been able to force myself to do so. I did find a green for the witches face – but then I got started on other things – you can tell that quilting is all I am interested in when you take sewing into the equation. I think this light green should work out well for the face – I’ll find little bits for the mouth and eyes still and maybe a yellow for the band around the hat or I might just leave the band off and have it be a plain black hat.
The next flower cluster for the Postage Stamp border is stapled in place and ready to stitch.
the other part that is finished. I might stick a small butterfly in between these two clusters of flowers. The next area between flowers is larger and I will stick another bird in there and maybe a bee if I can cut one out right. I am not using patterns for these flowers – I get ideas for the birds and flowers from the wall hanging in the book that the idea for this border originally came from but I have been free form cutting – making them up as I cut.
The box of neutral hexies that I am using for Handful of Scraps.
I got one more short row put together for the hexies today and have three more rows to make before I move to the next big area of neutrals as I have more flower clusters to make too.
Work on The Final Frontier Wednesday night.
