the after bag

I am calling this my "after bag"
I made this after work,
after I took the babysitter home,
after I made supper,
after I cleaned up the kitchen,
after I tucked the kids into bed,
after I put out the garbage,
after I tidied up the family room,
after I started a load of laundry,
after I checked my emails
After all those things it was only ten o'clock and I wasn't quite ready to go to bed.
I was really only going to cut it out, but one thing lead to another and then I just couldn't stop. Today I am so glad I did! Even though I was bleary eyed this morning.
The actual pattern is called "Gilly Bag" and I got it free from the quilt store on Salt Spring Island when I purchased a package of fat quarters.
This is my second project finished from the project lineup
