Two Finishes

I appliqued hearts to the backing of the pinwheel quilt and added the binding, and it looks better. I need to finish sewing the binding, but I'm so close to the finish that It's done to me.

I also did the second session of the sew along making the bag, and I used it today. It passes my own personal tests of being light on my shoulder, easy to finds things, and easy to drop things into to free my hands when necessary. I probably would have made it an inch or two shorter, but for a summer bag, it's fine. I'll sew in a couple of snaps for security. I was just watching the Donna Dewberry Show during which she made a bag that I liked quite a bit. It has a flap over the top. The pattern is on her website supposedly, so I'll check it out and see if I want to make it.

I joined a crochet-along on Crochet Soiree on the Leisure Arts site. The only requirement is to make one of their free patterns in red, white, or blue or combinations of those colors. The patterns are for iced tea jackets that I love, a hotpad, and something else like that. So that's what I'm going to start next.

God Bless You.
