CAN YOU HAVE TOO MANY BAGS?

Lots have been going on the past couple weeks...i had to go for lab work...an annual thing so i could renew my meds...then the dr appointment....now its more tests as my anemia has gotten worse....It seems its always something when you get past 70...

I have been sewing though, mostly on the flower garden quilt for my granddaughter but been doing a few bags when i could keep my mind on them....the one on the left is about 20 inches square...one day i saw a lot of yellow and different greens in my 2 in stack and thought maybe there was enough for a bag...so that is how that one came about.

Last night i checked the leftover squares i had left and decided that i had enough for a cosmetic bag so i made the one here in the picture.....if i look on the table i probably could find more color combos to use for more bags...

My sewing table looks worse than ever right now...i thought i was making headway in the scrap using but i think i am just creating more mess.....i took one day and made several different blocks as i found scrap that would fit them...so a few quilts gained some blocks...

That is about it for now....maybe i will get out a quilt and put the border on it now that i have the piano keys done for it....i am a little anxious to see what it will look like when put together.....more later....

JUST SOME FUN SEWING TODAY

Today i worked on the flower garden quilt some then ventured to the sewing room to cut out more white hexies...i am always running out of them..of course there is a lot of white in these quilts lol....

While in the sewing room i cut more bricks for the lazy brick quilt for my son...i am making the border ones now then i can put the other borders on the quilt and have the top done...

While i was there i made more market basket blocks...the ones with big square and 2 small squares at the bottom....i have 3 different sizes of those blocks going now...i use those for leaders and enders when sewing..it goes very fast and i found today i have 7 rows done in a 16 row quilt so it isn't going to take long at all...

No pictures today just sewing here and there nothing really seemed like i did anything lol but i had fun just the same ....i wanted to make sure i stayed in touch with the blog though....maybe next time more to show....more later....

BACK PROBLEMS LINGERING

I  have been fighting a nagging back problem for the past few weeks and have left the sewing alone...but i find if i dont sew i get depressed and that isn't good....so i guess its back to the sewing machine as much as i can handle....

I have let the housework go to the point that i need to do something...anything would be an improvement lol...sometimes i think moving to an apartment would be better than trying to manage a big house at my age...but i would miss the space i am sure...

Today i did manage to go to the quilt group meeting...i took the flower garden quilt i am working on to sew more while there...no other show and tell this time....i traveled light so it wouldn't bother my back...now i am so tired i can hardly stay awake....

Not much else to talk about at this point....but more coming later....
