Socializing this week plus a little Sewing

Once again, it’s been a busy old week.  Plenty of outings – Sew Wots on Tuesday, Morning Tea on Wednesday, and a ladies Lunch today, Thursday.  In-between all this socializing I rolled the dice to see which of the projects on my List of Six.  It was number 4, my selvedge bag.  Last time I worked on it, the bag was up to this stage. 


I’ve now stitched the the pieces for the top of the bag, and made the lining.  Hopefully I’ll get it all assembled tomorrow.  Watch this space! Then I’ll be able to cross this project off my list.


This little piece is what started me on my selvedge journey.  It was sent to me by my pen-friend Carol from South Dakota several years ago, to show me how it was done.  I’ve now lined this little square and have added it to the lining as an inside pocket.


I really must write a new List of Six, as several projects have now been completed.  I’m sure I’ll find some more UFOs hiding in the wardrobe to add to the list.

I like the ric rac in between the salvage blocks for the bag.
Sew good to have used the little sample piece for the pocket'
Look forward to seeing it finished.
I'm sure there's many UFOs hiding in the cupboard....

Your bag is going to be wonderful. I do like the addition of rick rack between the blocks. I haven't saved selvages in the past, but I may need to start.
