As I finished the quilting, prepared the binding and then machine sewed the binding on, I tweeted along with my fellow #BDSI companions keeping me company. At one point I became super annoyed at my machine because I was getting the birds nest effect on the back and cried out for help....Jaye from Artquiltmaker came to my rescue by telling me to rewind my bobbin thread very SLOWLY. That did the trick and at approximately 5pm Monday afternoon I took a photo of this:

For my younger nieces I made zip pouches and they loved them. My SIL told me that the bag I made below for B. looks very similar to the new backpack that my niece had yet to open for Christmas. The pouch would be a perfect accessory to the backpack which made me happy.
|Love this girl...such a sweet kid.|
Hope you are all well,
