Wet Wednesday WiPs

The past few days we have had heavy showers followed by bright sunshine. It makes consistent laundry drying impossible but makes great sewing weather.

Stem Messenger Bag
I am up to the second last section of the bag assemblage however I do not have the necessary hardware to complete the straps. I have put in an order from the Etsy store called sewingsupplies, however I am not sure how long it will take to arrive. But then The Patchsmith came up with a clever idea of going to an op-shop and buying an old bag to re-purpose it's tri-bar slider combination. So I may get a chance to do that in the next day or so.

Fussy Fairytales
I tried so hard to get this project finished by LAST Friday but even after 5 hours of hand sewing the binding I had only reached halfway. Hopefully I can finish by this Friday.

Katy Jump Kites
Today I was able to complete the further 19 blocks and now I have the layout of the quilt on my design wall. I had to tweak a few blocks just to spread out the pattern of the fabrics, but it did come together quite smoothly.

I am linking up with...


  1. Oh so beautiful! Looking forward more peaks of kites.

  2. Looking forward to seeing Katy Jump Kites in all its beauty! Great work!

  3. 5 hours of hand sewing on the binding so far?! Wow! I am impressed! It's going to be such a stunning quilt though with so much love in it.

    Love love loving the KJK quilt so far. Can't wait to see how that looks sewn together!
