Welcome to The Round Robin Edition 20 – Summer Bags.
in the sewing room
This past week I thought I’d give a try at EPP again… the little class for the Modern Quilt Guild SLC went well, and while I was looking around- I found that Jodi from Tales of Cloth is doing a flower quilt along. So, while doing a little visiting to the daughter near Zions, and doing some hiking, horse riding and just loving the outdoors- I took along a few hexagons that were ready to stitch. I have quite a few left to do, but making progress! You can find more about the Kingfisher sew along here.
today’s topic summer bags
What is the handiest thing around when you are heading to the beach? How about your beach bags and totes!
That’s right- It’s about that time of year when we are all getting ready to head out to the beach or pool or wherev er your favorite spot is and we definitly need something to haul everything around.
Don’t you find that it’s a little bit like going on an over nighter?
I usually find myself packing way too much stuff.and never really need it all. Do you do that? Coming up with the perfect beach bag and tote though is pretty tricky.
Depending on really what your activity and style is- the totes could be totally different. We are heading off to a few camping spots this year that are near water, and guess what I am taking that’s right my newest beach bag.
This bag is mongo…. and will fit a few beach towels along with whatever else you have! It’s made using leftover orphan quilt blocks, but you can use a full piece of fabric if you’d like as well.
