So, I'm leaving for Quiltcon in a few hours. You'd think the last few days would have been full of preparations for that, but I got the big stuff all done last week. I've been putting off the little things, like packing though.
|In my defense I also did the laundry, dishes, and some deep cleaning this week. Maybe nervous energy is a better term. I can't seem to sit still because I'm so excited for QUILTCON!!|
|I decided to bring some knitting on the plane because it's light and travels well. Of course I needed a new knitting bag! I have been saving this Lotus Pond fabric for a while now and just love it!|
|I used this tutorial, found on In Color Order, for the bag. I bought the ribbon at my LQS and have no idea who made it but it looks so cute with my fabric.|
|It fits my current project perfectly!|
|So, yesterday I had everything gathered to pack, the house was clean, dishes and laundry done and put away. So, I started another project. See, nervous energy. I'm participating in the Sew My Stash this year and there is currently a Precuts Party going on. The basic idea is make something with precuts from your stash. I've had these and all the fabric, including the back and binding for a while now and I whipped up this quilt top yesterday. Fun stuff!|
|With the tragic loss of the iron this finally happened. All packed and ready to go. Maybe I'll do some knitting or scrub the bathrooms because I still can't seem to sit still.|
