Quilting on the run

I love keeping my hands busy, especially if it gives me a chance to create.  And since we don't have a lot of wall space for decorative frou-frou...most the things I make have to have a purpose.

One of my favorites is this little bag/box.  They are so handy and I have them hanging throughout the RV storing those oddball items that don't seem to have any place to call their own.

When I saw this knitting fabric, I just knew I had to create one of these bags for the projects I'm currently working on.  I can just hang it on a hook in the bedroom when I'm not in the mood to knit or crochet.

Maybe Chicken Lady can work on things while I sleep.

Much of my quilting uses scraps as I like that look and don't seem to be able to throw away fabric.

There's nothing like the addition of fabric to add a touch of home to an RV.

Long Live the Queen of Quilting


  1. Every home needs personal touches... and it's good to know yours has not gone untouched! Love your projects.

  2. OMG ... You have my effigy hanging on your wall. What have I done to deserve that? You didn't like my last post? Or you don't like my comments? Tell me Oh Queen, so I can redeem myself ... and while you are at it let me know when you are in town ... We are awaiting you arrival, Queen of the Chain of Lakes State Park.

  3. I love crafty, practical things. I am not at all frou-frou. Those look like ideal solutions!

  4. Your little bags are fabulous, and I love the fabrics you have chosen for them. "Chicken Lady" is just precious, and such a homey touch. I don't like to throw away scraps either. I'll most likely use my yarn scraps to make a lot of squares for another afghan some day. I agree, busy hands are happy hands. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

  5. Love the bags, love the chicken lady, love you. POND lois...More Water striders appearing everyday. Huge goldfish out of basement tank, into pond. ta da
