OMG I made it! With an hour to spare in my hemisphere :)
Here are some progress shots to show off my pockets. It has a lot of pockets. I'll take proper daylight pics hopefully soon and talk some more about it.
My February OMG goal was to finish this bag. It has been in progress for too long. The pattern is Madeline bag with a few modifications.
Thank you bro. I couldn't make it without you! :)

If you on IG you might have seen those little baskets during the weekend. It's called #pixiebasket and you can find tut by @fabricmutt here.
My choice of fabrics? Oh yes, those rainbow scraps again. I had to add a bit of purple once pieced together. I don't measure much, lol.
It looks so cute but honestly it's a bit fiddly. The size is pretty small but I couldn't resist.
Have you spotted my WiP right there! I made some progress on my 4x7 challenge projects. It's first time I'm actually going to link up.
I have hand quilted parts of the top. I only do this with top and batting. I'm about to add the snugly backing and move to machine quilting. I'll keep it simple.
Not sure if you see the lines partially quilted. It goes from the center and it's not all over.
I'm not doing very well with my OMG project. I have solved the zipper color dilemma but it's hard for me to move forward even though I'm making it for myself.

Here is my project for Le Challenge. The theme is ROUND. I cut up 4 circle scraps and made two pouches. Similar but different.
Which one do you like better? Circles and anyhow quilting or the more organized lines on right?
I like both. It's always fun to explore more than just one idea.
Here is the other side. Don't you like the effect of warm side and cool side. I do.
I have also tried something new. I glued leather scrap to the zipper end. Hopefully it'll last :) If not, I'll add few stitches.
Color accent on zipper pull is another thing that I like.
Since I used scraps for my pouches I'm also linking up with Scraptastic Tuesday and Oh Scrap!
Buttons on my sidebar. Feel free to join me :)

OMG it's February already! I'm going to have fun every month with this perfect linky party name!
My goal is to finish this bag. I want to add zipper pocket but I'm undecided if it's going to be green or pink :) My choice is based on the lining fabric.
To give me some extra motivation it's also my project for 4x7 challenge.
I was also brainstorming what else to add to my selfish sewing and I would like to finish this quilt for myself.
I have bought cuddly quilt for backing and I brought some batting. The quilting will be simple that's for sure. So yeah, I spent some time planning and shopping. Sounds like a good start to me :)
I'm also thinking about joing #purplesewingchallenge. We'll see.
