Log Cabin-y purse

Another crazy Log Cabin bag. LC's are my very favorite thing to do with fabrics. Love seeing each one take on its own little personality. These are all quilted and this is the most comfortable bag, just like a favorite cotton quilt.

Cue the music

I'm back on the hook again. I've been given the OK by my physical therapists to begin crocheting again. I'm only allowed to work for 20 minutes at a time and then I have to take a break. But 20 minutes is about all I can do before I really start to feel it. But at least I can work again. And I' m nearly finished. I'm so close I can taste it. I can't wait to finish and post a picture here. I'll keep you all updated.

Log Cabin tote

Here is a large (13x16x3) log cabin tote bag I made last night out of fat quarters. It's all quilted and lined and quite sturdy and homey, like a soft cotton quilt. Love it!

I know Mrs. Wade and I are here. Anybody else?

Here's my new beginning!

I didn't stitch much on it as I lost my Mom a week ago yesterday and I'm sick. But, here's a pic of my new beginning and I LOVE this pattern. Much easier to do than the last one I tried and gave up.

Update on my progress

OK all, I'm depressed. My physical therapy has been going well, but I've still not been given the clearance to crochet yet. Great, the one activity that truly relaxes me, is still so close yet out of reach. I'm still regularly attending my S&B because I'm the most experienced stitcher and the founder of the group. It's not been easy to attend and not crochet. How are all of you doing? How are the log cabins coming along?

More detail about my log cabin block

MRSWADE asked what yarn I had used in my log cabin. It's just Caron Simply Soft from Hobby Lobby. They have so many color choices and the sheen of the yarn is really pretty. I've generally been a basic Red Heart user but am trying to branch out. Also, it's about 10 inches square and I used an "H" hook. I'm going to use all these same colors , but shift the color sequence around. I'll leave the center white square and maybe the gold and red the same for all When I sew them togeather it will still be darks against darks and lights against lights, just different colors next to each other.

I was so excited to have finshed a first try that I hurried to post, forgetting more description.
