Today is My Day - Say What?

to the Sticks
 the second day of the
"Say What?" 

Here is my finish:  Today Is My Day

Joan at MooseStashQuilting invited a great group of Bloggers to
create something inspired by something they have to say.
Thanks, Joan, for inviting me!

I listened to a motivational speaker once and he said that we should tell ourselves
every morning that "this is my day".

So when I found this project in the book "Sew Illustrated" by Minki Kim and Kristin Esser
I tweaked it from "This is the Day" to "This is MY Day.

I've been trying to use my books.
I bought them because they "spoke" to me.
Why do they sit and not get used?

So with my goal to dust my crafty and quilting books,
this is the one that "spoke" the loudest for the challenge.

From the reinforced corners to the quick zipper pocket inside,
the project was super fun and used techniques I hadn't done before.

And a few I had a little experience with.

Plus, I used some of my favorite Tula Pink fabric to make my new tote
perfect for me.

It's the perfect size for taking my lunch and more.

Check out the others that are saying "Today is My Day" today:
