Twenty two crazy scrappy backpacks -- done -- bagged -- and ready to go to Honduras.
This has been a project that has taken on a life of its own! I thought, hmmm, 10-12 bags. Good to go. But as I was culling my stash and finding bins of 6" strips, more bags kept happening.
This photo isn't all of them, just the ones that had been completed by yesterday afternoon. I spent the evening with a friend, watching a movie and stringing the last of the clothesline straps, tying the knots and finally, folding and bagging each one.
Two more are headed to a friend in Virginia.. one to the widower of a dear friend, and their eldest daughter.
Mission accomplished! Until the next time when I make more..
I'm so not a good blogger... I just looked at the date of my last post! And now 6 months later... here I am.
The Mala quilt top is done but its all hanging in the laundry room until it tells me how it wants to be quilted. So far, it has been very silent, but I know it will tell me one of these days. In the mean time, I did a baby quilt for a friend, a donation quilt for the local Planned Parenthood Gala, and just finished the top for this design by my guild sister Sarah Whitney from her line at Sweet Clover Canyon -- ok, I will get pix up one of these days.
And a blue jean quilt is in the works... just waiting for some helpers to add their straight stitching skills to the construction.
And.... my boss goes to Honduras in June for a medical mission and while we are collecting medical supplies from various offices, one the big needs is for fabric bags since most of the folks they serve don't have any containers for their personal belongings. They have a need, I have a stash.
After purusing several patterns on line, I came up with my own.... a simple long strip of fabric that becomes a lined bag, and with poly clothesline for the cording, these will do quite nicely. The finished size is about 17" square...
