Click on the button above and find out all the details! Hope to “see” you tomorrow!

First picture to share:

I bound two hand towels and one washcloth. The towels have a decorative strip going across the bottom. This was one of my stash busters, all binding was made with one fat quarter. Wish I had more of this material, I love how crisp and clean it looks!

Update #2

This is the bag holder I have used for the last 11 years.  It was made from a sweat pant leg that was my now 20yr olds.

Here is my new scrappy bag holder!

My stash busting has gone well!

Next I think I’ll move on to hand embroidery.  Slower but no less satisfying!

*****************************

3rd Update

Well, I was gone for a little while doing Hubby/dinner stuff.  Spent a couple hours at the bookstore, one of my favorite past times.  As a result, I’m not quite as far as I hoped to be.  I should be able to get this project finished tonight and get started on the second one pictured.

We are going to watch Time Traveler's Wife while I finish my stitching.  I wasn’t sure I would get done with the movie before midnight, so I thought I’d do my post now.

This has been a lot of fun and SO productive. I look forward to doing this again sometime!

***************************

Final Update:

Well I didn’t get to the second embroidery piece, didn’t even start on it!  I did manage to get the fishy one done though!

I enjoyed this a lot! It was nice to be be able to see all the other projects that everyone was working on too!

I think the new bag holder is quite an improvement over the old one!
