Another week, another tropical storm passing by and a hurricane on the way. I figure with Janice in Florida and me in Texas, we got this whole storm thing covered. One or the other of us will be effected. As I am writing this, there is a beautiful quilt top sitting on my floor. I think this one is my favorite so far. It should be ready for quilting tomorrow. It will make it's grand debut here on the blog first.

Speaking of debuts, I am putting on a couple of pictures of our newest creation. The pattern isn't written yet, give us a couple of weeks, but our "Abbey Bag" is going to be a hit.

I almost forgot the BIG NEWS. Janice and I are officially going to Market. Yes, we are having a booth in Houston. We should have 6 to 8 new patterns. Yes, that means we are working like crazy right now. It will get even worse in a couple of weeks, when all the new fabric comes in.

This is the Pin Cushion.

This is the Bag.

This is the "ABBEY BAG'

That's about it for this week. LET US KNOW WHAT YOU THINK OF THE ''ABBEY BAG."

Wow, what a great idea! This will make a perfect gift for all of my sewing friends and relatives. When is the pattern available?:)

Marcia said...

Hurry with the pattern.

Meredith Shepherd said...

Beautiful colors. Now if I only quilted... or ironed! LOL

Hmm - how could a scrapbooker use it?

You know, somehow I picture a cute baby sitting in it with legs poking out either side with pin cushion for a little pillow (sans the pins of course)... All strapped to a cute trendy mom. You should think about designing a pattern for fashionable baby slings/pouches.

Very clever! Cute and useful--great thinking!

OK you two have really outdone yourselves with this bag. It's adorable. Every quilter needs one of these.
