Lacking Motivation

By |February 27th, 2012|bag, Block of the Month|13 Comments

This weekend passed me by, and I barely sewed a stitch!  I found myself with lots of ideas but no motivation to set things up and make progress!  Most notable, I know the bag I want to make.  I want to alter this pattern to make it better, and actually offer it as a pattern. [...]
