Friday finishes!

Got my NuBee blocks finished and mailed off:
Nubee, Oct. Hive #1

I attacked a 241 bag from Noodlehead.
It's been on my to do list for a while.
I'm going to a festival tomorrow and wanted a new bag.
You that is the right size.
I wanted color...something juicy and bright to go with my fall wardrobe earth tones.
Once I saw Pernilla's Journey, I KNEW that was it.

I added some sour apple Kona to it.
Someone somewhere blogged that it took only 2 hours to make. Um...not me.
It took me about an hour to cut up all the pieces.

It took about 4-5 hours to apply the interfacing and sew.
I thought I was done about 4 hours in...then the tension went crappo on my last top stitch, resulting in crazy loops on the inside that had to be ripped apart.
I love it.
the front:
241 bag
the back:
a new bag!
a close up:
241 bag
Love it. Love it. Love it.
It's big enough for my stuff and my epi...and I made the strap long enough to wear across the body.

I'm adding it to Celebrate Color's listings.

My only wish was that I could have had an elephant in its entirety front and center, but I only ordered a half a yard, not taking the size of the repeat into account.
I still got the edges and the moon face, so I'm happy.

Add to my joy! I won charm squares left over from Courtney's at monpetitlyons fall quilt.
charms won!
Her quilt is quite fabulous, as are the pieces I got. Some Heather Ross! Luscious fall colors!

I'm debating pillows...or adding some more stash and making a quilt.
Gah. Or pouches.
sooooooooo fabulous!

I made these for gifties for 2 ladies I'll be hanging with at the festival.
Pouch for Kathy

Ok...I'm done. If you want to sign up for the Charm swap, there's still room!
