I Promised News

And ye shall have it...


"Pieceful Tigers" won an honorable mention at the NQA Show last month in Columbus, Ohio!  These  photos were taken at the show by my cyber-friend, Jeri.




I finished another Nook bag -- this one has a pocket for the cable and plug thingy.
 With the aforementioned apparatus next to the bag.  I used elastic at the top of the pocket so it doesn't gape open when it's empty.

I pieced the back.  The strap is adjustable.  I'm writing up the pattern for this.  Stay tuned...







I'm pretty sure there was something else I was going to say here, but I can't think of it right now.

So -- Happy Fourth to all my American friends!
