Long time, no post

Wow, I didn't mean to take a blogging break!  I think realizing how much I missed sharing here made the task too daunting.  So, we'll start small.  I made my mother-in-law a 241 Tote for Mother's Day.  I bought the orange floral linen from a friend on the IG #greatfabricdestash sale and the metallic linen was from a random listing on etsy.  This was not my first 241, and I love this Noodlehead pattern so much.

I even added one of my personalized buttons (flash sale on pickyourplum.com)  to the back.  I always use an elastic ponytail holder for buttons like this.  Easy and they come in every color you'd ever need.

Okay, that post didn't take so long!  I'll be back soon(ish) to share some more!  I have three (THREE!) quilts basted sitting on the floor next to my sewing machine (and a few more tops that need backs and batting).  I usually don't baste until I am ready to quilt; preferring instead to have a collection of quilt tops, not sandwiches. Someday when I finish with bee blocks, swaps, clubs, etc.  I will quilt and bind them!  

Oh, and she seemed to really like the tote!
