Lazy


Maybe it's the warmer weather but I have been very lazy about sewing lately. And I wish I could say that it is because I've been outside enjoying the nice weather but I can't. I did quilt the zig zag quilt this weekend. And I'll be adding the binding this week. (Did you notice I removed the most recent post on that quilt? I had a bad feeling the person it is for might stumble upon this blog. I'll post it again once I give the quilt to them.)

Since I have nothing much to share, I thought I'd share some of what's going on with other peoples blogs:

Draw-string backpack (from Mama Urchin) - Tutorial to make one of those nifty backpacks you see everywhere nowadays.

Patchwork fabric basket tutorial (from ayumills at Pink Penguin)

Melly & Me is having a giveaway this week!

CraftStylish has a tutorial for reverse appliqué featuring a tote bag. Nice idea. And you can now upload your own projects to the CraftStylish site as well.

Posted any good tutorials or projects lately? Or found one on a favorite blog? Leave me a comment with the link so I can check it out.

Thanks for all the links. That basket is too cute! I may have to make it.
Is that a DJ block I see?

Actually, it's funny you ask. I just came across this on a fellow quilt-a-longers blog today and I think it is amazing:
