May flowers

..... of a couple of different varieties!  I'm no gardener, but I have a few plants in my yard that need no love and yet every year, they do their thing.  This clematis surprises me every year.  It always grows and loads up with buds, then all of a sudden one day they just open!  Makes me happy.  :)

.... and flowers of a fabric variety .... I started working on my Super Tote yesterday (side note, I think that getting the pattern pieces ready probably took longer than the project itself will take!).  I'm skipping the interfacing on some pieces and am trying a bit of a modified quilt-as-you-go using a thin layer of batting and canvas backing for the bag front/back/exterior pocket pieces.  Here's a little peek at the first panel which I finished yesterday.

Back to the machine ....
