What are you most proud of? The soft Navy Blue upholstery fabric is a great choice for the colorful flying geese blocks. I used multi color thread to add decorative free motion stitches (circles, spikes and triangles) to attach flying geese blocks to the exterior fabric prior to construction. I used multi colored thread. I'll will work on something fun in polymer clay beads to decorate the zipper pulls. For the moment it is dreadfully plain with skinny little zipper pulls.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try the one seam flying geese block. Its easy and fun.

TanjaH. I'm a reluctant quilter. I try to build same blocks, but the routine of it all defeats me. I have 150 or so flying geese blocks done, but need to make a ton more. Ahhhhhhh. It's almost painful. What do you do to inspire yourself to get through a long long project? Thanks for your great comments on the laptop tote. I always appreciate hearing the word FUNCTIONAL.

Yesterday, I added beading embroidery on the back side of this laptop. It sure makes things look wild . . . I'm trying to get up enough nerve to post photos, but my technique isn't sophisticated as I'm just learning about bead embroidery to create surface design and texture. I just ordered an illustrated book on the subject--and hope to learn some fancy stuff.

I just discovered all your creations and I love them all, wow, I really like the colors you use for your creations and all the details you do in each one of your projects. When I look at your projects, what comes to me soul is "inspiration and creativity" I'm following here!!!! Thanks for the comment you left me for my triple zip pouch. Marisa :)
