Well, best laid plans, I guess. I was hoping to finish a quilt today and get some cross stitching in this weekend. And then last night happened. I had just finished making lasagna for supper and washed out the blender and rinsed the blade. It’s a big ole Ninja blender and has a wicked blade that sits down inside. Not sure what happened, but I think my hand slipped just a little and I got a pretty bad cut on my left thumb. And I’m left handed! 😯 I put pressure on it and had it wrapped in a paper towel, but I just couldn’t get it to stop bleeding. Paul came home about an hour later and said we needed to go to urgent care. Luckily, I only needed to have it glued, but I’m in a splint for a few days until it heals. 🙄 And I had to get a tetanus shot. It could have been much worse, though. Anyway, no clipping seams today. Not sure what to do with myself. Oh well, I can type at least. 🙂
Here are some pictures of quilts and totes I’ve made recently. More coming as soon as I can get back to work!
I hope you all love this tote as much as I do! It has a vintage look to it with the ecru and maroon prints. Hope someone buys it soon or I might be tempted to keep it for myself. 😉 You can read more about it here.
Here’s the finished patchwork tote and it’s just been listed in my shop. I have sooo many extra 5″ fabric squares that have just been sitting in a rubbermaid box. I pulled 9 different prints and used them in this patchwork rag quilt tote. I tried to keep the prints in the same color families. I think it turned out pretty. Just 1000+ squares to go! 😯
Here are my three newest listings, two baby rag quilts and a tote…..please click on the picture to go to the etsy listing.
I started this rag quilt tote yesterday. When I cut out fabric for a tote, I end up with lots of extra 5″ squares. Paul suggested I start taking those squares and putting them together in a patchwork quilt look. So, I grabbed a few different prints and started this one. I think it’s going to be really pretty. It will make a great tote for next spring and summer.
