Quilts and More......

Prepare to be awed.....yesterday, we got the newest *Quilts and More* magazine.  Today, thanks to the amazing Jan, we have a sample of a pattern in that very same magazine!  Alicia and I were thumbing through the magazine when we spotted this fun bag.  And guess what, we even had the fabric in the shop!  I think it's *Mind Your Mummy* from Maywood Studio.  We kicked around some ideas about fabric choices (the pockets are made from *patches* on the fabric.)  Then, this morning, while the Applique Society was meeting in the back, Jan and I settled on this for the first bag.  After we straightened up she set to work and voila.....a really cute bag from the magazine!  We picked another combo that she'll probably put together on Tuesday.  The directions are great, and as you can see, it's quick to make!  Do you have a kiddo that might like this?  Actually, the magazine also shows a grocery tote made with the same pattern.

It's been a fun week here at Fab-Etc.  Things got a wee bit quieter today, so I was able to catch up on some *fun* filing and paperwork.  There's another project or two on my *I'd really like to try this* list, so I've been playing a bit with those.  I've been doing some redwork Christmas stitchery from a pattern I got at Quilt Market a couple of years ago that's also nearing completion.....good things take time ~ right?!?

Have weekend plans?  Think it's gonna be kind of a quiet one here.....catching up on laundry, etc.  Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
