I can’t believe how much time has passed since my last post! I promise I do have a good reason! There has been a whirlwind of change in our house over the past couple of weeks. My husband was offered a job in Jacksonville, Fl and we will be moving down a week from today. Yes! It’s all happened so fast it almost doesn’t feel real. The job offer came on a Thursday, by the following Tuesday our house hit the market, that evening we had our first showing and in a matter of 48 hours we had finalized a contract with them. Whew!
So, off to Jacksonville we go! (If you live there or have been I would love to know all of the hot spots! Let me know your favorite things to do!)
Through all the craziness I have found time to (ignore the need to pack up of my sewing room and) sneak in a few projects here and there. One of the most addicting books out right now is Farm Girl Vintage by Lori Holt. It has so many cute blocks in it, it’s hard to sit down and sew just one. If you are on Instagram you may have already seen the #farmgirlfridays sew-a-long happening. One of this past week’s blocks to sew was the Baking Day Block.
How cute is this block?I decided the block would make a darling little pocket for the side of a market bag. I made the pattern up as I went, making it work around the size of the block. I quilted each area of the bag and tried to keep it simple and sweet with only the one pocket. The bag is a gift for my mother. She is so good about using reusable bags when she shops and we plan on hitting up a local market together this weekend.
