NEW BAG & NEW PROJECT

The latest McCall's Quilting Magazine had this cool bag and pattern.  It is pretty large.  Large enough to use when traveling.  My dear friend, Sue and I get together the first weekend in December (for the last 30+ years) and I think it will make a great gift for her.  Only I am going to make hers out of San Francisco fabric.  I can show you this because she never looks at her computer.  So, this is my dry run.  I think it turned out pretty cute. 


Tomorrow Robin (my business partner) and I are getting together with Sew Cal Gal  and sewing at her Sew-Cial.  I have selected this to take with me.  I forgot I needed a white; but, caught that when I cut it out.



I love making this pattern of Robin's, East Meets West, so I am going to be enjoying everything about my day tomorrow: good company, perfect location; and a fun project.
