Work In Progress

Work in progress pretty much sums up my life lately. We are renovating, I am trying to get some cleaning done, as the dogs track in mud, and I have only just finished unpacking from my retreat last week.

Today, I got back to the bag I started on the second day of my retreat. It actually looks like a bag, now. The sun was actually shining, so I took the picture in my sun room. Don't you love Doug's tail, behind the chair? There must be a squirrel in the yard.

It still needs a lining and a zipper. From the looks of the picture, it needs some edges straightened, too. It is a visit to Nana's house bag, for my little boy. I used Bethany's excellent instructions for her "Two Timing Tote" 

I have made this bag two other times, so you can tell I like the pattern. When it is finished, it has 10 pockets. Lots of room.

Meanwhile, I thought you might like to see what other projects were in progress at my retreat.

Diana made this lovely baby quilt.

Diane had these great project bags. I must try to make a couple of those, myself.

Judy spent the winter doing this lovely embroidery and put the top together at retreat.

A closeup of her embroidery, isn't it great?

I missed getting pictures of other projects, because I kept forgetting to get my camera out. However, Kathryn made 17 pillowcases for the children's hospital, Maggie made about a million half square triangles and Doreen made a lovely wall hanging, and I took her scraps. I have a plan!
