Roll Call Update............

"Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twin brother."  - Khalil Gibran

I am working on my little sister's tote today...........dreamed about it all night seems like, so HAD to get up and get to work on it straight away.......

I used some of Cherie's gift squares and made flying geese........and I am so glad that I decided to photograph the sneak preview because after I saw the photo I decided I didn't like the two sides
"flying" in different directions:


I was going to ask you all to let me off the hook and tell me it looked ok but in the end I couldn't even convince myself that it looked ok so Mr. Seam Ripper and I got together and it didn't take long at all to change the one side...............

I am much happier now...........this piece will form a pocket on one side of the tote bag...........I will do something a little different for the other side which will not have a pocket............

I love the Loralie panels....they are all so clever.............and this "Roll Call" is no exception.  Here is the mug rug I sent to my Swap partner last week...
Liz is a science teacher.....hope she likes this.  I sure had fun making it.........

So I will work on finishing up the tote today and then get myself back to work on my Dresden State Bird WIP........started on the quilting last week.......it turned out to be 86 x 102 so wish me luck on my trusty little Singer!
TaTa for Now!

Though I think the geese "flying" in different directions on your bag looked perfectly OK, I would have changed them on mine, too. Isn't it funny what we think is OK when it isn't our project vs. when it is? I'm sure she'll love the bag. Can't wait to see it!

I love what you're doing with those cute ladies. I won't even ask where you got the idea to se themin a tote bag. I love the science teacher, I think I even recognize some of that fabric. Great going!

The opposite geese looked cool! To me it looked like she was in an elevator.
Loving that fabric (you know you want to send some my way ;D ) =D
