Back in the saddle again

Drunkard's pouch

Huzzah! I sent my report off for the first round of feedback, which meant I got to do some sewing on the weekend!  I am happy report that I have completed half the curved pieces for my ogee quilt.  I like to sew all the curved pieces first, and then do all the straight seams.  I keep the pieces for each row segregated in sandwich bags so that I can keep everything straight.  This must be a relic from my childhood when I would eat all my peas first, then all my potatoes, before I would eat the chicken.

But I also made this little zipper pouch out of one of the practice blocks I made when I was warming up for the orgy of curved seams required for this quilt.  Ain't it cute?  The clothespin shows the scale.  I like to use the linen for these pouches, especially the larger ones, because it provides a bit more support.

Must run and charge my camera.  Tonight is my daughter's high school formal - lots of photos to be taken! Here's one I managed to get this morning, while checking the settings:
