Another Bag


To add to the collection, thanks to my friend Julie from Brisbane. That makes about bag # 7. My DH just smiles and shakes his head. 

I had great fun putting this one together, but wonder if I should have used a more firmer batting.IMG_0911

The only problem is all those pockets :-)) I spend half my time patting each one to find the keys, the sunnies, the phone. You get the general idea.

Also a bag I made last year for DDIL- I think she has thrashed it, so it was well worth making.

I also made a pincushion for a friends birthday.

You can’t beat the pansy fabrics for a quick, good looking gift!



We have just had the Craft Show here in Hamilton NZ and I was lucky enough to have one of my quilts juried in.

Didn’t win a prize – but what the heck! Actually the critic was very good – said they like the quilt and everything about it was very good, but I must watch those quilting lines. I know there are some on the quilt, but how do you get those pencil lines out?



I’m off to a quilting class on Saturday using Batiks and Drunkards Path rulers.

Ah time to go and have a wine!!

Bag number 7? At least you can still count the bags you have made.....?
You have done a great job too.
Looking forward to seeing what you get up to at the class today.
