Scrappy Bag and a favourite tote

Some of my sewing time has been used to tidy up my studio.  When I can't quickly find what I need, its time do put things away.  In  the process I get inspired.
I managed to come up this week with another project made from scraps.

The inspiration for this one, came  when I found the black border print in the scrap bin from an old project and a set of  plastic handles.

From time to time I'll post a picture of a quilt, a bag or another project that was completed some time ago. Since I'm concentrating on the topic of using my current stash and smaller pieces of fabric (those I consider scraps), this is a tote I made several years ago which I use regularly to carry my current hand project. Just needed small pieces of fabric, a little embroidery and a few old buttons from my grandmother's sewing box.

I have several large and small projects in progress but at this stage I won't share them in my blog until I'm actively working on them. But it won't be long until I get to them...

I subscribe to a number of quilting magazines and this week the latest copy of one of the quick projects got my attention. I have started it !! I'll post the picture when its completed, so come back soon to see it !

And now for the music highlight.....
