Groovin'...well...not so much

I stayed up waaaaaaaaaaay to late last night. I've been oogling this bag in a magazine for weeks...so last night about midnight I decided it was TIME!
I'm a night owl ,but this was pushing things. Anywho...this machine random quilting thing is fairly new to me. At least, I haven't done much of it in this decade so here i go. I'm not a very patient person when it comes to new projects. I could have probably practiced longer...but it's coming along. I may have to keep this bag...until my random quilting improves...(note to self-looking for excuse to keep this bag hehehehe!

Also turned out a few more bibs yesterday. How can a little girl who doesn't eat go through so many bibs. Lacey, my middle daughter & mother to glorious, perfect, simply incredible first grand baby, does laundry not for dirty clothes for the need of more bibs.. So i must be on bib 18. These were made out of scraps by my table...i particularly like the animal one.
Do you have a huge container of scraps beside your sewing machine? What size is toooo small to save? I need HELP!
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
Thanks for ALL the great response and sign ups for the giveaway.
I'll be announcing the winner on Monday....or maybe i'll have Ed Mcmahhan and his gang show up with a few thousand balloons...a big band...the press......or maybe you should just check back on monday! :)
It's not to late to add you name!!!

Especially at that time of night!

Those bibs are the best,How lucky your daughter is to have a Mum who can whipp up such flash looking bibs:)

the fabrics you've chosen for your bag are so cute Sheila! I bet your free motion quilting is great, I love the little quirky things in handmade items, it makes them so endearing!

I am the opposite....I get up at 4 am and head to the sewingroom with a cup of coffee.
The bag looks wonderful. As for scraps....anything smaller that a 1inch square I throw away.....LOL, I am serious.
