I always think I can get more done. This is what I accomplished this weekend. I started cutting fabric for boxy pouches and project bags on Friday night. Saturday I cut more and also cut out fabric for a baby quilt

I spent last evening digging thru my stash for fabric to take to work. I don't remember how the subject of those boxy pouches

I had a box show up yesterday with some fabric I ordered from eQuilter. I had a $10.00 coupon, got free shipping and everything I ordered was on clearance. The fabric ended up being $6.97 a yard. The blue with ducks on it was bought for a baby quilt, the purple with keys is for backing smalls, the skeleton fabric is for the back of the next Harley raffle quilt, and the cutlery fabric was bought as an option for a woman I work with who wants some placemats for a Mother's Day gift. The cutlery fabric is a Japanese import and is a linen like fabric. It is really nice stuff!

Last evening, I got the last four tote bags done out of the batch that I should have had done on Sunday. At least now I am caught up.

I had to have something to keep my hands busy at the long day of meetings, so I knitted. Vicki had sent me two and a part skeins of yarn she wanted to get rid of several years ago and now it is being turned into a scarf. Yesterday I got 21 1/2 inches knitted. There are 42 stitches. At least the day wasn't a total waste.

I made some progress this weekend, but of course for me it's never enough. I got the binding finally sewn on the t-shirt quilt. I then stitched on the badges on the sash and Brownie vest that will be appliqued on the back. My sister said I should sew them on since some of them were not attached very well.

I took a day of vacation so I could get the wireless pouches done. I ran to the grocery store at 7 a.m. then got to work on the pouches at 8:15. I finally got the last one Scotchguarded at 6:39 p.m. I did take a couple short breaks to get something to eat, but other than that I was at the sewing machine. I used these plant cages to hang the pouches to dry

I worked for two hours last evening on the pouches. I decided to work in groups of 10 so I could get some sense of how long this is going to take. I managed to get one completely done.

I finally got a number out of my brother on how many wireless pouches to make. He gave me 40 to start with. He got the prototypes and there is only one slight adjustment that I have to make! I got busy last night cutting out hook and loop tape parts.

I had a busy weekend filled with lots of different activities. I did get the two prototypes sewn together and two road case covers made for my brother. I got them shipped out Saturday morning and they are arriving this morning. I will find out which design they want and how many I need to make.

Yesterday had it successes and bumps. I had to scan 23 drawings and put them together into a pdf to send to an architect. We have a big scanner. I don't use it very often, but I was successful getting the drawings scanned and sent. Here is the big machine which also can print drawings and a look at the screen as it was scanning one of the drawings. It is pretty boring work, but it went smoothly.
