    DeeCee, when you get one done be sure to post here, even if it is a month from now! we love looking at them.

    Myrna, OMG that is stunning. I would actually use the red for the lining and the inside of the tab, black on the outside. It would really give it a punch! But a black lining would look more elegant. Hmmm, hard choice.

    Also just put a little binding on the piece that messed up, and use it for a coaster in your sewing room. And yes there are some decorative stitches that dont work, but you cant tell until you try.

    Everyone's bags look so good, Love the different looks!

    Nice work, folks. I love the black and white -- really classy. I'm finished with mine. I've cut out one more that is about 3" taller and will do the quilting on it this weekend, but need to wait until the magnetic clasps and more zippers come in that I ordered. I used two pieces of magnets inside this one and they are not really strong enough. This is a great pattern and I can see myself making more. I really appreciate the tute on doing a zippered pocket inside the lining. THANKS SO MUCH, CAROLYN!

    Mary B, I love your black and white. Very classy!
    Belfry, you are quick.

    The news on the terrorist in Boston got my attention last night. PTL they caught the remaining terrorist.

    Anyway, this morning I 'have to' wash my red fabric before I can begin. Can't wait though.

    Everyone's bags are looking great! Took a few minutes on my lunch break to get on here and peak. Gotta get back downstairs and let someone else have a chance to grab a bite before we get really busy this afternoon

    Finished my bag today. There were a couple new techniques here, just what I was looking for, I like to try new things. I will make another one, which should go smoother, hehe.

    Carolyn, thank you again for your help and hosting this retreat.

    Carolyn,

    The diamonds are great, I love the colors, blue is my favorite. I'm a little slow on the quilting, the machine I am conferrable on only goes forward and back and no fancy stitches. I should have it finished by tomorrow. I am doing a random pattern kind of following the flowers. I did get out for a walk this afternoon, it got to the low 40's and the snow is leaving. I will post photo tomorrow.
