July 1 is Canada Day and today we are celebrating Canada's 145th birthday. I am very blessed to live in this country; it is a beautiful place to call home.
I thought a red and white project would be in order to celebrate my country's big day so I put together another fun drawstring bag based on this tutorial. A couple weeks ago, there was a tutorial on adding pockets to this pattern, so I thought I'd give that a try, too.
This morning I discovered Lily's Quilts blog. It looks like something special is going on over there.
We get to show off projects we made in June! I don't have enough finishes to put together a mosaic, as she suggests, but I can show you my favourite (I think because it was my only!) finish:
I know, it looks pretty familiar, eh? This was the first of these bags I made, and it inspired me to make more. I decided even if the week is really hectic, there is time to make one of these and feed my creative soul with time
in the sewing room.
Lily also has a Small Blog feature going on today, so I am linking up with
that as well.
I wanted to start a blog so I could be part of the online quilting community in part because I haven't really found any like-minded quilters in the community where I live. The Small Blog Meet is a great way for me to get to know some other quilters, so I am looking forward to see where it goes.
Hope everyone has a great week; we have a long weekend so tomorrow stretches ahead full of lots of promise (and working on my master's defence - but the end is sight!).
