As crazy as my life is right now it is a miracle of sorts that I actually started and finished this bag in just three days. That included the design. I will write the pattern and pop it on the sidebar soon. With a little extra work this bag could very easily be a nice little purse/tote. Finished size is 15 inches wide by 12 inches deep. This is the size of the heating pad it was originally designed to cover. My original chain was 80 and could easily be adjusted by multiples of 4. I decided to use the grosgrain ribbon in the end. Weaving it through the cuff in and out of two stitches.

- I am turning into the queen of the quick projects, aren't I?
- I do like this pattern, lots of texture. I will reuse it.
- I already have a plan, a portable project while Husband is in hospital. It will do my nervous fingers good.
- On the quilting scene, I was thrilled to read an article about Jenny Doan in the Wall Street Journal. If you don't know Jenny you may remember her has the lady who does the U-Tube videos and introduced the quilting world to fun and freedom in quilting with lovely results in a short period of time. Her little empire has grown and grown. The Jelly Roll Marathon is one of her videos. Read the whole article HERE.
