September ALYofF  Goal

September ALYofF Goal

I’m almost embarrassed to admit that even though my Disappearing Nine Patch quilt was my goal in both July and August for A Lovely Year of Finishes, it’s still not done.  I’m not giving up on finishing it but I am choosing a different goal for September.

After taking the summer off, the London’s Writer’s Society will be meeting again on September 17th and I would really like to have a new writing tote finished to take with me.

Typewriter fabric that I'm going to turn into a writing tote and other accessories

I’ll be using this oh so appropriate fabric to make it.  Those typewriters look just like the one I received for my birthday/Christmas gift way back in the late 70s.

    I still have the old typewriter I used in junior and senior high school, but it isn’t as cute as that yellow one! Love the fabric!

    I had a typewriter almost exactly like that – only mine was grey. Wish I still had it!

    There are certainly times it would be convenient to have one of those old typewriters – when filling out forms, for instance! I got a Blue Royal portable for graduation in 1965. I wanted an IBM Selectric, but my parents didn’t want to spend that money on me. Darn! I bought my own years later, but that Royal typed a lot of papers, and my best friend’s husband’s dissertation, too.

    Oh, duh, and I love the fabric! It’s perfect for a portfolio or anything else to do with writing. Like a typewriter cover. 😉 Mistakes are a lot easier to fix now, though.
