Sunday Sew In!

Today, I met up with the Girlzzzzz, Barb and KT, for another sewing day! We invited Mary to join us and Barb and I met Mary for breakfast at IHOP. YUM!!!

Barb had a Minionade or something and it looked good! I wish that I had seen it before I ordered my milk....

But my breakfast was yummy!!

When we got to the shop, we got all set up and then I had to be on a conference call for work for about 10 minutes. Too bad there was some 'line interference' on my end, right, Barb??? HOLLAAAAA!! lol

When I got to sewing, I finished up my giveaway prizes by making the last Stitch 'N Chix bag. Woo hoo!!! I should be able to get everything all packaged up tomorrow night and mailed off on Tuesday! I will be glad to get my room back! lol

After finishing the bag, I moved onto the borders on the Jitterbug quilt. I was going to sew the binding strips together and get those pressed, but I kept moving them aside and never got to it.

Mary made a tote bag for her knitting from start to finish. It's very cute!!!

And per my plan, I used most of my leftover Jitterbug fabric for the backing. It took a while, but I got the backing made and used up some yardage. WOO HOO! It was nice to be able to use the shop's design wall, but I did a lot of climbing around on a chair since the quilt is so large.

I'm pretty sure that the backing is large enough and I can't wait to get it quilted! It's going on my bed! I think the dogs will love it!

Now, I need to pay some attention to the dogs.

THAT DRINK LOOKS SO GOOD. I WONDER WHAT FLAVOR IT IS? THE BACKING WORKED OUT GREAT. A GOOD WAY TO USE THE LEFT OVERS FROM THE TOP. LOVE THE QUILT TOP ALSO. IT WAS NICE YOU GUYS COULD GET TOGETHER TO SEW. I THINK I WOULD GET MORE DONE IF I HAD SOMEONE TO SEW WITH AND AN AREA SET UP TO WORK IN. I THINK THE PUPS ARE WONDERING WHERE MAMA IS.
