DAGMT 2015 - Is it February, Already?

I committed to working on a sewing project for at least 20 minutes, everyday this month, and so far, so good. Of course, we are only at Groundhog Day!

Yesterday, when I realized I needed to get started, I took the easy route and went to work on my cat treat bag. While tidying the other day I found a bunch of bits of binding, left over from past projects, so, I put them to use in this one.

I also did some sewing on the side pieces, until my bobbin ran out. I took that to be a sign that it was time to stop!

Today, I started looking for UFO's that I could finish and get off my pile, with a minimum of work.

I have a Necessary Clutch, with the pieces all cut out, just in need of sewing.

It is hard to see, but the fabric is PURPLE!

I have a Trail Tote, which is about 60% finished.
See, it already has its front pocket, with a zipper even.

And I found this pieced top.
It needs a press, then it needs quilting and a binding. And look! I have the binding, already cut and sewn.
Isn't the fabric gorgeous! Doesn't it deserve to get out of my UFO pile!

So, by the end of February, I am going to try to have these 4 projects DONE!


  1. Such pretty fabric deserves to be finished! Am I right in thinking it looks familiar?

  2. A pieced top AND the binding? What are you waiting for? :) It's going to be stunning. LOVE the fabrics.

  3. Lovely fabric! It will look great finished. I love the idea of DAGMT. Is it just for the month of February? Can I still join. I have been sewing for over an hour each day this month so far.
