Frustrated....

Kays bag.


Summer Harmony so far.....
My niece Kay is going to Uni in september to train as a nurse and she asked if I would make her a charm bag for her toiletries. She also asked for floral fabrics and her favorite colour is pink hence the colour scheme.  I know I said I would not start another project until I had finished Summer Harmony but on Friday was a bit of an emotional roller coaster and things began to go wrong when I attachted two of the block boarders. I decided I needed time out from SH and before I knew it I had cut the squares for Kays charm bag. Bag completed I took a deep breath and unpicked offending wobbly block borders and last night I sewed them on correctly. I am now back on track with SH and hopefully it will be finished soon.

that quilt is so lovely and homey looking. All you need now is a log cabin and a bonnet ;-D

Hi Susan, I too had a very intensive sewing day yesterday and today, trying to get the borders on! Lots of unpicking and patience required, I took time out and went shopping and had a coffee and came back refreshed and it is now looking fairly straight! Ha Ha! I won't be doing any more unpicking so it is now as good as it is going to get! Yours is looking great and I love your bag!
