Weeks 5 and 6

A little late, as usual, with posting. My idea was to post weekly but my work week throws me off. Then the week I was off this last time was busy for various reasons and ended up sick the last of it going into my work time. I'm about to finish up that and start off time again. Will be keeping the boys this weekend. Looking forward to that!

I resurrected another sewing project and worked on that here and there the first 2 weeks of this month. Again I intended to also do a more artistic project but that didn't happen. Below you can see progress so far. Several years ago, I purchased a small quilted bag at the thrift store, intending all along to alter it in some way.  Some of the fabrics, especially the handle, remind me too much of the eighties/nineties decorating colors, so I wanted to "funk" it up a little bit.

Applique and embroidery on each square seemed to be the way to accomplish this. I'm making this up as I go along.  Not yet sure what I will do about that simple handle or what the purpose of this little bag will be.  Size is about 8" by 10". 

Close-ups of some of the squares.

This week, while shopping at a local thrift store, I purchased some tie-dyed, vintage look t-shirts with another project in mind.  I have several t-shirt scarf ideas on my "fabrications" Pinterest board.  Thought these colors and fabrics would make an interesting scarf.  Will keep you updated on any progress, if and when that happens, lol!
