Spice Girl Tote Bag Machine Quilting Complete

I’ve completed the quilting on the Spice Girls Tote Bag, still need to add shoulder straps and the lining. This is not my final design, it generally takes three tries at a purse or quilt pattern design before I’m satisfied.

One of the problems I have with this design is that I hadn’t anticipated that I would quilt it so heavily, therefore the front pocket (which is not quilted) no longer lays flat again the bag because the fabric behind it has shrunk from the heavy quilting. I have that problem solved, in my head anyway, and I’ll let you in on it when I start my next Spice Girls Tote.

I have a new favorite recipe, “Pan-Sautéed Chicken Cutlets with Dijon-Mustard Sauce.” It’s based on a recipe from the Fall issue of Clean Eating magazine. I love their recipes, I just tweaked this one a little to suit our tastes. Oh. My. Goodness. It is Good! Leave me a comment or email me and I’ll send you the recipe.

That’s wild rice, and sautéed mushrooms and spinach on the side – the dh’s current favorite. It takes a lot of cooking to keep my Marty happy –  he insists on nutrient-dense, muscle-growing food, and lots of it. Don’t tell him, but I don’t mind cooking as long as I get to hang out with something that looks like that->->->
