Ready for a get-a-way

Finally done!   The "Holiday in London Duffle Bag" by Bari J.
Another pattern I just could not resist getting while at the "Arizona Quilt Show"
But I tell you...I had no idea what I was getting into when I made that purchase. Two friends and myself decided we were gonna tackle this bag together one week-end.
Well let me tell you.... It isn't called a weekender bag for took the whole week-end to get it done! But I do love the end result and look forward to taking it on my road trip to Medicine hat next week-end. Wish I had a picture of the three of us together but you will have to wait on that one!

Yup....bought this one there too. And I absolutely love it. I will definately be making more of this one! I'm all ready for thanksgiving now....bring on the Turkey! and I was also able to use up some of my batiks from the
batik fat quarter club I belong too

And I can not just sew the day away...I had apples calling from the tree and a girlfriends calling me too...this is the end result, as well as some applesauce that has already made its way to the freezer

Here it is....
My August Schnibbles. top done but that is all I have done and I was lucky to get that done in time. Well actually I was not on time but because of the long Labor day week-end they extended it three days. Lucky for me :)
Oh ya and another months worth of batiks used up in this one too!

All in all, I must say it's been a busy week since being home from the lake and I don't think it is likely to slow down!


  1. You have been wasting no time! Great looking bag! Love the colours and prints, but your apron is to die for! BEAUTIFUL!
    Yummy apple jelly and sauce, just in time for some overnight company maybe?
    Glad you made the Schnibbles was quick but now it is done you are ready for the next one.

  2. Hey I was just thinking...are you planning a trip to Britain? ...maybe the reason for the Holiday In London Bag?

  3. ahhh Sis...thanks for all the wonderful compliments. I so wish I could so yes to your question about Britain, but nope, sorry, It's only making its way to Medicine Hat for now...and yes, overnite company sounds wonderful
