Thursday Catch Up

I figured that since I haven't posted in a few days that I should give an update.

As you know, I have been working at my local quilt shop, Best Friends, for a few months now. I generally just work on the weekends and I have been cutting back a little for my sanity. I worked all weekend last weekend and we were so busy - I was exhausted! Monday, I came home from my real job and slept from 7:30 PM until 6 AM.

The shop has also been getting into some shows in the area so we have been kicking things into high gear making up kits and samples and jelly rolls. And everyone has a job. Some make kits. Some cut fat quarters. I am the Jelly Roll Princess. I think that they are going to make up a t-shirt for me. giggle Unfortunately, I have not thought to take any pictures of the rolls that I have made. Tonight, it was 9 batik jelly rolls in a rainbow of colors.

I also have a back pack to finish. Here are some pictures.


Last night, I cut the pieces and started assembling the body of the bag when I broke a needle and my walking foot. Luckily, I can use one of the walking feet that is sold at Joann's. I will have to go to the new one in Mason this weekend to pick one up. And I also have a spare foot so I have been able to continue.

This pattern is one that was written and published by the shop. I have made their purse and the courier bag patterns and they are good patterns, but I always took the class while making the pattern. I hope that I can wrap this one up quickly though and move on to something else. Oh, and it would be nice to turn it in and get paid! :)

Look for my weekend goals tomorrow!
