The best laid plans…

I had such plans for this week, I did. There’s a quilt all basted and ready for quilting, now my walking foot has arrived. There’s another quilt top I want to piece, all cut out and waiting for me. There’s my cutting mat bag, with not a whole lot more to be done on it. And what did I do? Very little on that list. We’ve had some domestic upheaval for the last few months and this week, there was suddenly a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. And that’s when I realised just how exhausted I was. So most of my spare (sewing) time this week has been taken up by reading and relaxing. I’ve got through almost all of my stash of Little House books, but sewed only a little. I think I decided I was my most important WIP this week.

I did make a little progress with my cutting mat bag. I ‘quilted’ the outsides (my batting is a cheap Ikea fleece blanket!).

I attached pockets, buttons and button loops.

I even sewed it together with binding around the edges. There’s no picture of that, though, because I buggered it up and have spent the afternoon ripping it. I’m visiting family next week, which means the bag will just have to wait until next weekend to be finished, and my modifed Hexagon Park pieces will stay in pieces for now. But next weekend, I’ll get there!
