I'm done with the quilted bag and in the small hands of my granddaughter who astutely said "made it out of hot pads, eh". She is a funny little thing. Fact is, I did use the same fabric to make some hot pads, a week or so back. Children notice everything. So far she hasn't put her Barbie clothes in it but she has carried it around like a purse.
So now on to my next project, a sampler type crazy quilt, complete with the catty wompus piecing and embroidery and velvet. It will take me a while, but then, that's what retirement is for.
