Motorcycles and Quilted Fabric

What is happening...
I am sick...again! Just a cold this time. This has been a rough winter for sure. It feels like someone shoved a potato up my nose. The pressure is better today but after sleeping two night with my mouth open I can't wait for this to be over. LOL! We had a good weekend. Went for a motorcycle ride on Saturday. Love it!! Just relaxed and watched episodes of Dollhouse. Pretty good show. I am not that far into it but I like it.

What I accomplished...
I did not finish my Swap Bag but I did get a bunch done. I got the outside done, the handles finished and the lining sewn together. I want to make a pocket for the lining.

Here is the quilting on one side. The other side is different.

Here is what the pocket will look like. I saved a part of the salvage to use somewhere. I think the pocket will be perfect.

Here are the parts together.

I did finish another project, it is a glass case/rotary cutter case. It was a free project I got on my Shop Hop. I love it. It fits my cutter perfectly. The outside was already quilted. It was so easy.

Sewing thought...
Do seam rippers get dull? Mine has. It feels more like I am trying to cut metal with a stick than thread with a thin blade. LOL! I bought a new one and I guess that it is good to say I have not had to use it yet. How many seam rippers do you have?
Goals for the Day...
#1 Sewing
I want to finish my Swap Bag. Get it ready for shipping.
I want to pick out my fabric for the H2H Challenge.
I need to start on a lunch bag for my youngest daughter.

#2 Housework
Who am I kidding, I don't do any housework, I am so busy sewing or resting. LOL!!

I hope everybody has a great day. TTFN


  1. Love your bag - great fabrics and colors. You have the biggest part of it done. Cute little rotary travel bag - hmmmm, putting that on my 'play' list.

  2. Love the colors of the wonderful bag you are working on! And the curlie-cue quilting is a great addition. The rotary cutter bag is great. Great idea for taking it to classes or when traveling.

  3. Love the colors of the bag! =) Hope you feel better soon!

  4. I like the cutter case..I haven't seen a pattern for one. Very nice when travelling with the cutter!
