Summer Sewing and Tula Pink

I sewed this bag last weekend.  It is Amy Butler's Birdie Sling.  I was motivated by the Wednesday's visit by Tula Pink. 

I used a different colorway on the other side.

I used scraps to make the pockets.

I got Tula Pink to sign this pocket in the green area. 

I made Tula a bookmark with a scrap, I was making other bookmarks and was a little addicted.

Eeek!  I never have acted the groupie before but she was pretty awesome!  We took a photo at The Little General quilt shop but I dont have really good pics because I forgot my camera and all I had was my iphone.  But here are some of the quilts she brought and fabric samples she shared at her talk at The Graylin International Conference Center

Tula Pink showed us sketches of the new collection she is working on called 

After the talk we hung out at Old Staley's Bar & Grill,  listened to Sean sing, and talked for a couple of hours.  It was a really great night.

This is Gina owner of The Little General and her husband Sam.  
They looked like Princess and Prince charming!

Great bag! I'm waiting impatiently for my Nightshade fabric to arrive so I can make a purse as well.

Wow you must have had a great day! I don't get to see Tula very often, she gets around alot I think. I do enjoy visiting her mother in her quilt shop. She's such a sweet lady. I love Tula's fabrics and can't wait to see what SaltWater as I am not real big on witches.
