Just a Little WiP

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Okay, so not a lot got done this week. I have been in a sewing funk, I think. I did finish my big bag and tutorial.
I also finished putting the navy stripe border around my Embroidery 101 quilt. This one is finally getting closer to being done! I've been working on the back and thinking about how I want to quilt it. Sorry for the bad picture but it's raining outside so I was stuck doing an inside picture. And I really should have re-ironed it!

Well, sadly, that's it.
We DID have our quilting guild Christmas Auction Monday night. Everyone brought in tons of quilty and home decor goodies. We lined things up on tables with paper bags in front of each one. Each member bought tickets which they marked with their names (many of us use address labels). We walk through and put tickets in things that you want. The things you want the most get the most tickets. You can put as many tickets as you want in each bag. Mitzi and I were runners. The callers would pull a ticket for each piece while we delivered it to each winner. I spent $10 on tickets and won the following.

Two lovely lined drawstring bags made by Mitzi! There were several and I wanted them all!
A cute Christmas cigar box and a lined Velcro topped pouch.
A brand new fat quarter bag to line up all my fat quarters for storage!
A charm pack of Dogwood Trail! I've been wanting some of this!
Some cedar and lavender sachets made as gifts for those attending!

I loved all my goodies! Linking up to Lee. Don't forget to check everyone out!

I'm interested to see how you quilt the Embroidery 101 quilt. I've had mine basted for almost 3 weeks, but haven't figured out how I want to quilt it! I've also added that great bag to my after Christmas project list!

your quilt guild meeting sounds like it was fun, and I really like your bag! I hope your sewing funk is over soon.

Mitzi said...

uh! I didn't know that was a fat 1/4 bag or I would have totally tried to get that. oh well. I'm glad you like my little bags, you know I'm not a bag maker so I'm really proud of those little bags.

I really like the sashing you did on your embroidery 101 quilt. It looks just amazing. Can't wait to see it quilted.
