More Kitties and a Wrestling Match

Bag 1

Bag 2

I finished making a couple more totes yesterday. Both of these are basically the same except for a difference in fabric placement in a couple of spots, and also the kitty cat is different.

I'm having so much fun with these and I've got two more planned out. Not sure when I'll get to those, hopefully by the end of the week.

Bag 2, above, is already spoken for and I will plan to get the other one into my Etsy shop soon.

I started putting on the binding on my king size quilt yesterday, and will hopefully finish with the machine stitching on that today and start on the hand stitching as well. I usually don't create such huge quilts and I'm finding that working with this king size monster is such a work out. Trying to wresting it around while stitching the binding is proving to be my deciding factor that I probably won't make another this size for a very, very long time. I think if my sewing space was set up differently, in a way that is king-size friendly, then I'd feel differently about creating large quilts.

In other news...this month (Aug 16-Sept 15) over at 3 Creative Studios, we have a wonderful guest artist, Margaret Applin-Happ.  I love Margaret's work and she also sells wonderful Thermofax screen designs in her Etsy shop.  Margaret is sharing her techniques on creating digital imagery over at 3CS and will offer new information throughout the month on the 3CS blog.  Please be sure to check that out.
