I did finish the July BOM, but I won't post it until I have the June BOM done. Not bad, I'm just one block behind. I need to JUST DO IT! Maybe tomorrow. I just get a little side tracked....lol Talk about side track.....yesterday I was organizing some patterns and found a pattern that was on my "to do list" and decided to just do it.....I did. I found some cat fabric just sitting there....my granddaughter isn't a fabric cat lover any more, so I have lots of cat fabric. I picked out MY favorite one. Cute HUH? Well, there is one problem with it though........ I found out the hard way that you don't use directional fabric.....nope, nope, nope, unless you want to cut it differently and waste (not necessarily waste...goes in container for a scrap quilt;-)), I CUT THE MATERIAL.....looked at it....discovered the "opps" I thought about it for a while and said "What the heck?" Who will notice? hee hee. ( ME ) Notice the blue "mice" are directional too:-) The bag to the right is the "cat" bag I made for my granddaughter years ago. I love that pattern from Lazy Girl Designs. It has 6 outside pockets. Only problem is I keep forgetting what pocket I put what in....no biggie,. When in doubt, just check all six. lol
Opps, I got side tracked again;-) I'm sure that doesn't happen to anyone else...lol. I got the super easy Grocery tote at http://www.spoolsewing.com/blog/ click on the link on the left side. This is my kind of pattern. It has written instructions on the front and on the back PICTURES. I found myself flipping back and forth to put a visual with the words. Now I need to whip out a few more. Then I have to remember to bring them with me when I go shopping. That is the hard part.
Have a GREAT DAY and make yourself a few grocery totes........but don't forget to use them;-)
