A lot of loose ends......

it's going to take ages to tie off and bury this lot!


In case you haven't guessed it's the lining side of the bag I'm busy with.  This is the front of the back.......


Just got to do some echo quilting around the branch and flowers then I'm ready to put the bag together.
I've already done the quilting on the front and front pocket.....




This is the stage of a project that always feels so near and yet so far to me.   I seem to stall when the end is in sight and the last bit of sewing is an uphill struggle.   Wonder why that is.   Separation anxiety because it's almost done?  

At least I have this to distract me.....


I love this magazine.   It's always full of real quilty eye candy and challenging projects I'd really love to make.  I can dream.... can't I!

As this post has a taupe feel I thought I'd pop in a shot of Chris's Disappearing Nine Patch.....



She spent the day here on Tuesday and finished up all her piecing.  Added the borders too.  She may have started on a slow burn but now she's really cooking!!    She started piecing her own Nanny Sharons Picnic Quilt while she was here too. 

That reminds me I plan to finish off my picnic quilt this coming weekend and get it ready for the frame.  I've not much to do on it.  See what I mean about stalling when the end is in sight!!  

Better go and get on then......

Till next time.....

Have you ever used easy thread needles to bury the threads? Much quicker than having to thread two threads through the eye of a needle.

Love this project! Waiting to see it finished. Never seen that magazine before. One more I need to get.

Your bag looks so wonderful but eek on the tying... not my favourite thing to do! Especially when you think all done and there are some stragglers lurking somewhere :)

I need to stop reading your blog, I just remembered now that I want to do a Nanny Sharons Quilt too LOL...
