Little toiletry bag

While browsing the web I found this lovely little toiletry bag, at the Joy Patch site, just had to make it, I had everything on hand, except the right sized zip, so I just cut down a longer one. I all turned out fine.

A Lovely gift

This not very good photo shows what Crafty Clare gave me when we visited. I am nearly certain I will use the teddy print in the new babies quilt, when I get round to making them. I keep having ideas and then change my mind. It was hard enough trying to decide what to make for one baby let alone two. Decisions, decisions.......

Thank you Clare, I am still overwhelmed.

I have been working on a braid with my stash, I had it all sewn together and ready to put on the outer border and something was not right, so I unpicked. While unpicking inspiration hit, and after a bit of cutting and turning this is part of what I ended up with. I will not show the whole quilt until it is totally finished.

Bag or Tote Swap

I am in a bag swap, and have finished my article for my swapper, so that she will still get a surprize when she receives it, I am just putting in a little sneak preview. I experimented here and I like the outcome.

Number 4, which I did second, I changed this one a bit, wonder if anyone will notice.

Yesterday I got the magazine for the next block, number 5. I will start on that soon.

Breast of Friends Block 3

Breast of Friends Block 2

Here is block number two, it took so long to do, I had to get a light box so I could draw in the applique bits, but I am happy with the outcome.

I have finished another Swap for the row by row round robin. This one is for Trish J. This is row 5, which was trees and leaves. Trish's them was Beach's so this is the palm trees at the beach with the sand, sea and sky.

An Amazing Block

Today in the mail I received this amazing block from Bec (purpled2) I think it is beautiful, she has put in a lot of work, it even has guitar strings and little beads to tighted the strings with (I don't know their proper name) Lovely work Bec, thanks so much, I love it.

Last week I was looking for a piece of fabric, and I knew it was there somewhere but I just could not find it, (it was in a safe place). So.......... I decided that my fat quarters needed sorting, and here is the result, I ended up buying a new plastic box to put them in, it is about half an inch too big to fit properly on the top of my tea trolley. I have decide that it would not be a good idea to count them, because then I might have to work out how much I spent.

Bags, Bags

This is one of the first bags that I made with applique, I made it for my self from a pattern which I altered out of a magazine, unfortunately I can't remember which magazine it was.

This is the other side, the original did not have this side it had writing

Here is another one, I had all these bits of blue fabric, so I joined them all up, this is also out of a magazine and again I can't remember which, also again I changed it to suit what I had.

And the latest one, this was made out of all my 2 1/2 inch squares, this time no pattern just out of my head, it is round base and has outside pockets for all those goodies
