They came, they sewed .....

We did some cutting...

Some pressing...

Some pinning....(some people did more pinning than others!!. No names mentioned here, MISS NANCY)

and some sewing...


At the end of the day, we had nothing finished to show for it..LOL Anne got some help cutting selvages off to make a backing for a quilt. She did get her main backpack fabric quilted.

This photo doesn't do the fabric justice. Up close and personal it looked like black and blue butterfly wings. She will make this one for her daughter.

Here's Miss Nancy (LOOK!!! She's pinning!!! HA HA HA) She is always pinning..
She knows I am teasing her... My dad used to say "If I didn't love you, I wouldn't take the time to tease you....


Miss Nancy got 2nd place in finishing. She was having some issues and decided to pack it in at 2pm and take Anne home.. She hadn't had a very good week. Everything that could go wrong did...(hope everything is working today..)

I got first place in finishing. I just need to put the lining into my bag and sew around the top. Now, here is the problem. I don't like it. It doesn't do anything for this body. Today I am going by the quilt shop and get some fabric to make a Messenger bag. I will use the pattern from this book by Pat Sloan.
I will finish the backpack this weekend, make the messenger bag and then find something to do with the backpack. Maybe I will have a contest with giveaway...

Would anyone like a contest??

Happy Sewing,
Nancy

PS somewhere in this blog there are 2 "and"s where there should only be one. I saw it once and now can't find it.....DANG IT...just skip over one

PPS....HA Found it!! Now it's perfect....LOL

I don't pin unless it is a super slippery fabric.
