FNSI: Satchel for Two

I've nearly finished the Satchel for Two.  I just have to close the opening left for turning.
I started cutting fabric around 430 yesterday and sewed until the older kids came home from a late movie.  (They went to see Woman In Black and really liked it.)  They got home after that means it took me approximately 7 hours to make this bag.
 While I was sewing this was going on in the kitchen...

 ...I just love this little guy!  It makes me so proud to see them reading on their own.

I also found another stash of small HSTs.  These are Fig Tree Quilts Urban Indigo fabrics and a really cool tomato red (that I can't find anywhere...dangit!)  I now have 3 boxes of small (about 1 1/2 inches) HSTs.  They don't really go well together, but I'm sure that in no time, I will have more.  I really like star patterns & pinwheel patterns  and both of those seem to contribute to my collections.

Well, I need to get off my duff and head out to the Quilt Shop...I need to get crackin' on this Cinnamon & Nutmeg!


  1. Love the bag, I am always so surprised how quickly the time goes by when I am sewing. If I was at work, I would know that I just spent that much time working. But when hubs walked by me last night on his way to bed I was stunned at the time.

  2. That is a cute satchel. I love your fabric choices. I ended up sewing until midnight. Sheer exhaustion took over as I had been up since 5 yesterday morning. You are right though, time just flies when I am in my sewing room!

  3. You bag turned out awesome! I agree about time flying when your in your sewing room! Congrats on a fun project being finished!
