Picture Overload

I have been very busy sewing, putting in 8 to 12 hour days for the last 5 or 6 days, these items are what I have to show for it.  Seems like there should be more, lol.  This is a smaller version that I winged as I went, of the Temple bags from My Quilt Diet's blog.  It's for my 5 year old granddaughter for an overnight type bag.s f

The smaller versions front and flap.

Her Mama, Marcy's full sized version.

Marcy's back.

Marcy's inside and flap.

A comparison of the two sizes.

Mine.  I keep giving mine away, maybe this one will stick.

The back of mine.

And the inside and flap of mine.

My visiting teacher Becky's back.

Becky's inside and flap, I seem to have lost the picture of her front momentarily.

A Spider Man and Marvel heroes travel pillowcase for my 2 year old grandson.

My grandson is visiting his brother, another grandson, in Germany and he informed me that his girlfriend will be traveling with him and having a birthday while they're gone.  This is a gift for her, a large bag with 10 pockets and a zipper top.  Hopefully, handy while traveling. 

A totebag for the 2 year old.

Zipper pouches for the 5 year old great-granddaughter, and the 2 year old great-grandson.
The insides.  Spider man and Paris.  While the visit is going on, they plan to all visit there. 
And the missing front.  These Temple bags are pretty labor intensive, thus the hard day's labor.

Temple Bags 3 and 4 (aka Huge Messenger Bag)

My Quilt Diet had a quilt along for these, and since my friends from Idaho are visiting next week, I've been doing the prep for the lady of the pair and I to make them while they're here.  There's still plenty left to do, bottom to top:   inside flaps, exterior, straps, zipper pockets, other 5 pockets, and interior lining.

Disappearing 9 Patch Blocks

I should be doing a lot of other things this morning, mainly housework and grocery shopping, but instead, I spent this morning making these Disappearing 9 Patch blocks.  Our friends are coming to visit the end of next month, and if there is time we may make Temple bags (also called Huge Messenger Bags) together.  I think these might do for blocks for the fronts and backs.  The instructions for the bags are here.  It's from Marion of My Quilt Diet, lots of good things on her blog.

Temple Bag Zippered Pockets

Not the best job ever, but my linings now have zippered pockets.

So do the back exteriors.  I don't know if the less than stellar job is due to my lack of sleep, but I'm going to use it as an excuse.  My husband has had a little bit of a slow leak type of nose bleed for the past week or two, and last night about 1am or 2 am it changed to a semi gush.  When it hadn't stopped after 3 or 4 hours we sent to the ER.  They stopped it, and we were out of there about 7:00 am.  We stopped by the grocery store, and then came home and I opted to sew and wash, etc. instead of sleep.  I'm getting weary.  (We have to be careful with him, since he is on blood thinners.) 

These last two are the interiors of the pockets.  You have to use your imagination.

Anyway, they're done, and they work.  I used what I had, which was 2 black, and 2 white 14" zippers.  The black zippers are on my bag, and the white ones on my friends.  If you want to go to the source of the QAL, visit My Quilt Diet.

Celtic Solstice Clue 5, Temple Bag Interior, and Sad Family News

Celtic Solstice Clue 5 finished, but I think I'll probably try to redo Clue 2.  The original backwards ones would make a passable border, I think.

The interiors of my temple bags, light green and pink.  Ironing the interfacing was a bear, and I'm still not certain that all is stable with it.
On a sad family note my 91 year old aunt passed away yesterday.  She lived in Iowa and I live in Florida, but I saw her off and on over the years and I feel sadness.  She had a good life, but she'll be missed.
