snow day!!

i was sorta hoping for one today.  we had a busy weekend.  alex had a playdate and emma went to a dance clinic. my nieces spent the night.  friends popped in, lots of football and junk food, and an hour or two playing just dance 2.  not much else got done.

maybe now i can finally finish quilting this blanket.

i had a little sewing time yesterday, but spent it instead on this little project.  while pulling charms for the pork chop swap, i came across these squares.

they're moda but i don't remember the line.  i decided to make them into a grocery bag holder for the pantry, using this tute from moda bakeshop.  once i quilted it though, i really like it.  so i may bind it and hang it on the wall instead.  i think the square quilting makes it interesting, and i may try it on a baby blanket, instead of my usual straight line quilting.  i just wish that i'd used something other than muslin to back it.

and while digging around, i found this unfinished project.  a crocheted mesh grocery bag.  started, oh, probably a year ago!  it just needs handles and the bottom sewed shut.  i should finish it too.
