After a week with a full calendar, I finally got in a little sewing yesterday. I made this really cute tote bag with a divider, to carry wine.

It can hold a couple of bottles or maybe one and a glass or something to snack on.

Check out the tutorial over here.

I went to the Rusty Barn Quilt Craft & Sewing Festival in Orange County. I’m always on the lookout for something new. I love gadgets. And, just look what I found. 

I love the little beetle. It’s both a needle threader and a thread cutter, plus it's lighted. 

Next week I’m taking a Joe Cunningham class at the Quilt Fest in Palm Springs. What do you think? Another UFO?

Hope you have a good week and

Quilt happy,

Love the bag, the fabric of squares is a perfect border choice. (Love the contents, too!!! What a great gift it would make.)

Hello Marilyn,

A great finish on the bag, hope you find some lovely wine to go in it. Love the ladybug gadget, with the addition of the light it makes it very useful.

Happy days.
