Little English Paper Piecing Tote bag

Yesterday was such a beautiful day.  My husband and I decided to take a ride in the mountains and visit one of our favorite antique stores in Hudson, NC.

 I found this sweet little tapestry bag, measures around 5" x 6".  I think it is just perfect for toting an English Paper Project or embroidery project  to work on at a friends house or anywhere else that I just need to take a small project.  It is lined in satin, and just too irresistible to. 

I have been spending most of my available time quilting on the Jack's Chain quilt.  Doing big stitch with #8 perle cotton means quilting is going a little quicker than my usual hand quilting, but still taking awhile.  I am trying to get the quilt completed in time to enter in my guild's quilt show in September, which means having it ready to submit Mid-August for judging.

This morning I sat on the porch for about 5 hours, enjoying another beautiful day watching the birds at the feeders, listening to an audible book (The Great Alone) and quilting. Such a peaceful start to a day.

I have also started piecing a baby quilt for someone at my church.  Unfortunately  I have had to set it aside until I can get the Jack's Chain finished.  All I have to do is add the borders, and then machine quilt it.

Also managed to fit in a little work on my Pemberley quilt - making these sweet hexagon flowers with 1/2"hexagons. I have a couple more to make and I can start appliquéing them to quilt center. 

So many fun things to work on - and so little time to do it.

Oh yes, that little bag is just perfect ... and I love the chain quilt. It really needs to go to that show, so keep up the lovely work.
