WHAT GIVES YOU THAT SENSE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT?

Want to have some fun?  Take a class at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  I took a bag class from Marilyn this past week and not only had fun but had a wonderful sense of accomplishment.   The picture above shows the bag before I inserted the wire frame.
This was taken after the frame was inserted.  It reminds me of a Dopp Kit used during WWII.  But I love it.  There are pockets inside and lots of room and you get a wide open mouth with this zipper.
Another view.  Carter (8 years old) wants one in black.
 I added some other items to my accomplishment list.  I put binding on some pieces I found when I cleaned my sewing room.
I also finished this project bag that I started several years ago.  It will be good for my current applique project.

DON'T FORGET that the Country Fair Road Tour 2017 begins Thursday, October 12 and runs through Saturday, October 14.  You won't want to miss out on the games, prizes, food and fun.  There are four quilt shops participating:

Way to clean up that UFO pile, Caroll! The bag looks great! Love the green and orange mix. I could feel your feelings of accomplishment with all these started projects getting finished. Happy looking stuff here in this post!
