Another rainy Saturday

The rain and snow are still coming down here. We are finally going to see a relief from it on Tuesday. Now I love snow, but I am tired of being cold. The older I get, the more it affects me.

So the mystery quilt weekend is done. I have another top to add to my pile that needs quilting. I am hoping that this Summer is going to be a turning point for me, and I'll be able to get some tops quilted up. Here's a sneak peek.

This block is very interesting to me. I think I am going to have to make more and play with them. I love have the X looks like it's floating.

Saturday's are usually days that I put aside my chores, except for cooking, and spend time in the sewing room. It's my one dedicated morning. This morning I am working on a new bag pattern.

Here are a few bags I've made recently.

I call these my Ditty Bags. Cute huh?!

I made this satchel bag awhile back.

Today I will finish up doing a Satchel bag for the boys. It has lots and lots of pockets, places for clipping things like flashlights and compasses. And a place for a water bottle. It will be a great bag for a little boy (or girl) to take outside and explore nature with.

Well that's what I've been up to. How about you? Making anything new?

Thanks for stopping by.

Till next time....

Love your colors for your mystery block. Can't wait to see the whole quilt.
What great bags you have made there, your very busy sewing. That is where you can find me when it snows, unless the power goes out.
