I'm still here

Well, here's what I've been doing lately. I've been working on these star blocks, and I'm having a lot of fun with it. Although seeing the red/brown on the computer is making me rethink that block, its too dark. I have about 12 blocks pieced, and i picked up some more star fabric at a new shop I've been checking out. they have a flat fold section for 1.69 a yard and about half the shop is new bolt for around 3 a yard. I bought 12 yards for under 30 bucks and it was so fun. I can buy so much more fabric!!

I am almost finished with this crazy block, but I'm so close to edge with the french knots, and i think i have 3 layers of denim under them, that its such a huge pain, and i feel like I'm yanking the thread through, so its slow going. But i love the hearts i did, they're so cute.

I also made a couple of messenger bags, one for me with shoe fabric (so cute/funky) and for my husband with some sock monkeys outside and bananas inside, that was a lot of fun.
