Happy Tuesday, friends! Life has certainly been busy as of late, how about for you? Josh is graduating next week, my oldest daughter’s birthday is this week, not to mention Mother’s Day, Prom, and an awards ceremony! Whew! I’m tired just reading that sentence!
I’ve managed to finish one more cottage in the Santa’s Village! I actually missed three white stitches at the end of the elf’s hat, so I’ll add those in right away. That’s eleven cottages done and only one to go! I may take a day or two and just stitch to see if I can complete this by the end of the 18th, which is technically the end of Stitch Maynia. However, if I don’t finish it by the 18th I know I will be done before the end of May and that is a win for me!
I’ve also been working on the Road Trip Bag. As of Monday evening I’ve put 20 hours of sewing time in on this already, and I’m hoping to be finished with just a few more hours of time. This pattern is really well written and I’ve enjoyed the process of putting this all together. I sewed the side strip onto the front main panel today. I noticed several skipped stitches, so I am a bit concerned that adding the binding to cover that edge will yield more skipped stitches. If so, I may be hand stitching the binding down. I hand stitched it down on all of the quilted pockets and main panel pieces, so it will match if I decide to go that route.
I hope you all have a wonderful week and are enjoying the days as the weather gets nicer and the evenings stay a little lighter!
