Well, it certainly is Monday. It doesn’t look like I am going to get any work done on the Rooster Bag today because of the paper I have to write for my English class – I still haven’t started it and have less than 11 hours to get it done. I have only eight classes to finish for my BA, but I am really feeling burned out – my enthusiasm has definitely waned.
Last night, even though I was dead tired, I finished all the quilting on the front and back panels.
I used invisible thread and like how it looks. Removing all the basting threads wasn’t easy, but I got them out without damaging anything – I was really afraid of pulling a thread in the brocade. The lines look pretty straight, which is a huge accomplishment for me.
So, if I get some time this afternoon/evening, I will push on. The gusset is next- will probably make it out of the material on the left of the panels, not the roosters. It will be just like on the Hippie Bag, where I will have to cut it into two pieces to make the design upright on both sides, rather than cutting it on the fold.
I'll be back....
