MishMash

Today is a mishmash of the other things I worked on over the weekend...

These are the snappy pouches I am making for the bazaar this weekend. Once the fabric is all paired up and all the parts are trimmed to size they are super simple to put together. I need to borrow Dad's tin snips to trim the tape measure and then I can get them finished up Friday.

You might remember some time ago I started a leader/ender I'm calling 4+16 for lack of anything better. Blogger is telling me that I have no posts with that label but that's not true...and I don't have time to go find them...

While trimming fabrics for other projects I have been throwing 1.5" and 2.5" blue and white strips in a bin. As the leader/ender over the weekend I sewed some of the strips together (there is still a set under the needle), subcut them and pinned them. They now sit on top of my Bernina ready to be sewn leader/ender style another day.

My 4" basket blocks are also a leader/ender project using just about any fabric as long as it's a kinda small scale. I've also been trimming fabrics into 1.5" and 2.5" strips for this as I go along and I was able to put together one whole block over the weekend.

This block is for a BOM I am teaching. The gold stands out a little more than I like but it is what it is. I still need to write the directions and make 2 more blocks. Just something else to fit into my crazy schedule...

You are always such a busy girl - always with great projects. I think the baskets are my favorite!

Love those snap bags--I have made 10 and still haven't got one for myself! Funny how that always seems to work out :)

You're going great guns with leader enders...I can't seem to keep that boat afloat though I think about it all the time!

I especially like the blue flowered fabric for the bags and I also agree with Denise that the gold in the last block is great.
