weekend sewing

Thanks to a quiet weekend at home, I was able to tackle two items on my to do list!

First up, some bee blocks for Krista. She's kicking off the first month of the Free Bee and has requested blocks similar in feel to these wooden trees (but without the stems). She only wanted one block, but I couldn't stop myself and did two. It was fun to sew up something so low stress.

Next, I completed my partner's bag for the Potholder Pass 10 swap!

My partner likes patchwork  and modern fabrics. I used a grey Robert Kaufman Carolina Chambray for the main part of the bag, a Suzuko Koseki kitchen print for the panels, and a scrappy log cabin for the pockets.

It's lined with one of my favorite white and orange florals. I hope she likes it!

Ah, to be sewing again. It feels so good.

I really think your bag is fantastic. The bee blocks look great too! Glad you are happily sewing and no longer sick!

Oh, you're the sweetest! I love those two blocks and can't wait to add them to the growing stack of others, thank you!!! Your market bag is gorgeous. I don't think I could put soggy lettuce or a sweaty carton of milk in there - it's way too pretty. What a lucky partner you have.
