I simply HAD to order it right away. It arrived about a week ago. It's WONDERFul, but it has no handles to carry it to classes/retreats/and the like.
I learned there is a wonderful place in Australia that was offering a pattern for a carrier bag to fit the chest of drawers if you ordered from them. Unfortunately, I couldn't afford the shipping from Oz to the US, but I contacted the shop in Australia anyway, and they very sweetly sent me the pattern anyway. They are called Always Quilting and I highly recommend them, not only as a wonderful and well-stocked online shop, but as wonderful people too.
I made the bag for my thread and it fits perfectly, though I did have to do a little finagling to convert from metric to inches, it still sewed up quick and easy and with no problems, even though I am a novice at making bags.
Here are some pics of my new bag:
Here's the bag just standing up looking all spiffy with the box of thread inside. I used a prequilted fabric because I was too lazy to quilt my own, lol... though I'm sure it would have been better to use up some stash. I saw this green and purple and cream print, and I just LOVE green and purple together and I had to use it.
I posted some pictures of the actual box of thread and the drawers here.
Anyway, that's what I've been doing with my quilting time. Not very productive of late, but I am gearing up for my trip to Sisters, OR for the quilt show there, and haven't been doing a lot of quilting. I did make another Woodland Creatures block, but I haven't done the edge stitching or embroidery on the block yet.
Anyway, that's my quilting journey of late... Hope yours is alive and well.
