12 hours...

I took today off from work...I need to stay off my feet (that's the main excuse I'm using) but I also just need a day to recharge my batteries...and thankfully for me...I have nothing on my work schedule until tomorrow...so I plan to relax and sew and do whatever I want for the next 12 hours (give or take...the family might want some attention at some point!).  I already have an easy to put together dinner planned...so off I go!  I'll update here periodically to see what I accomplish!

4:45 pm update:

piecing along! (no pic right now)

12:15 pm update:

I'm enjoying myself so far!  I've decided to work on whatever I want, not necessarily anything that "needs" to be done...so I pulled out my layer cake of Shelburne Falls (Denyse Schmidt) and some other pieces to coordinate (a lot of DS Quilts) and using the pattern Lazy Sunday Quilt from May Chappell:

I got to cutting:

and now I'm going to take a bit of a break, get off my feet, and maybe do a bit of hand stitching...and then head back upstairs later this afternoons to start piecing this one together!

9:10 am update:

I started with my cargo duffle that I've been working with off and on over the past week or so, first I had to fix the pocket flaps...not sure what I was thinking, but I positioned them incorrectly...(correct position on left):

and then I put it all together (assembly of this thing is pretty easy once you get the major pieces constructed):

Details: Pattern - Cargo Duffle by Anna Graham of Noodlehead; Fabric - Juliana Horner; Canvas - home decor fabric from Joanns; Interfacing - Pellon SF101, 987F (fusible fleece) and 808 Craft Fuse; Thread - Mettler; Zipper - Coats Coverall Zipper


  1. Have a fun day. Recharging those batteries is a necessary thing.

  2. Your Cargo Duffle is gorgeous. I love your choice of fabrics! This one has been on my "to do" list for awhile now, but you've inspired me to start it!


thank you for taking the time to comment!
