February CGQC Goals

Love is in the air, right?  Well, I'd love to get some of these UFO's out of the closet and finish them. 

First up....about a year ago I sewed these honeybun strips together to make a Sweet Treat Bag.  You can see, this did not happen.  I believe that I couldn't "see" how to do it, but I am sure it will come together if I just do it.

Second up....I need to finish both of these purses.  Why I haven't is beyond me.  I think I was making one of them for myself to go with this great new pair of jeans I had.  I say had because I quickly became too fat to wear too cool to wear and what is the purpose of matching a purse to a great new pair of jeans that no longer fits you no longer wear.  Don't judge me.

Ha, that is what I say too! But I think finishing up projects are made to be finished at some point. Go for it!

isn't it great that our purses don't have to fit our "buns?" One size fits all.

I'll join you in the "too cool to wear jeans" club. LOL! I have the same bag pattern but I haven't tried it yet. Let me know how it goes!

What cute fabric and bag pattern, Kris! I can't wait to see them. Kris - it's not you! I tell you it's your dryer!!! My dryer does the same thing to my jeans! I say, after you finish those bags, you treat yourself to a new pair of jeans--that don't shrink so much in the dryer LOL!
