100th Post and 1st Linky Party

I had hoped to have this done today, but life takes precedence. I made this wall hanging for my sewing room wall to remind myself that it's not the destination--it's the journey. I have been blessed by all the wonderful people I've met through Pink Doxies and quilting. One hundred posts, and dozens of new friends. Thank you.

I'm Planning a Party! Wanna Come?

I'm proud to say the tote is done. 
The handles are on, and it's ready for service. 
No more travelling in blue Ikea bags for me.

Selvages and Pieced Oversized Tote WIP


Okay folks. I'm smitten. I'm, totally, head-over-heels Gaga over selvages. 
They are like gingerbread on a house to add the final zing.

Orphan Blocks and Selvages

 My sewing room is now 'cleaner', meaning there are still some piles of fabric waiting for another project or two, and, Woohoo! I found my lost ruler! Floors are swept, free of pins, and all table tops are wiped down. Cutting fabric causes a lot of lint and dust, but all surfaces are sparkly now. I was putting away some scraps, and uncovered a stack of orphan blocks. They were made with Kate Spain fabric, and left over from the "Daydream" improv quilt top I did a few months ago. They were begging to be put in a project.

Flash In the Bag

The promised camera bag.

Have you noticed the little changes in Pink Doxies lately? One big one is the Bloglovin' button over there on the top right. See it? You can join Bloglovin' with just an email or your Facebook account. Then you can look for blogs you want to follow--like Pink Doxies, or other great blogs you've never even heard of yet. Bloglovin is searchable, and it's easy to find whatever you're interested in no matter who the blog's host is. They're there. Then each morning an email comes to your Inbox with a daily feed from Bloglovin. All the blogs you've chosen to follow that have posted that day are in it. It's a wonderful way to keep up, and eliminates the need for bookmarking or missing blogs you like.

Salvaged Selvage Bag

Allow me to prepare you for a wee bit of rambling today, but there are pictures.

New Year's Day was quiet here inside, and very cold and windy out. There was a fire in the hearth, hockey on the t.v., and fast food for supper. I had almost the whole day to sew, and since the year was new, I wanted to try something I'd never done before. Selvages. Wouldn't they look cute on a little zipper bag?
