I should have posted these pics last week. Jen has received my parcel in the Accessory Bag Swap so now I can show you the goods!!
I made the Sewing Bag from a pattern by Joy Coey. The pattern is called HONEY BUN FUN. You can find the pattern at Joy's website HERE. The pin cushion and needle-case are just simple ones I made up myself and the covered notebook is from a Tutorial you can find HERE. I included a few Aussie items too.... little notebook, fridge magnet and bookmark.
..... so, what else have I been up to??
not much. MH is away for a few weeks so I'm doing a little spring cleaning around the house. My son is now studying at Southbank Institute of Technology so no more school runs for me:-)) I am working on another baby quilt for my Niece Lauren (beautiful baby girl born Feb 11th - Maisy) - this one is called Lullaby in the Night Sky . I'm doing the blanket stitching on it right now and should have that finished in the next couple of days. I'll post a pic soon.
The weather here has been horrible lately. Very warm and humid. NOT great sewing weather! I have some machine quilting to do but just can't face it in this weather:-(
My sister is arriving today for a short stay which will be nice. We usually hit the Thrift Shops straight away! My sis always finds something good! We will also have a visit with Mum.
This is a photo taken of the two of us (I'm the one on the left!) at a family friends wedding - I'm thinking I'm about 8 and my sister would be 5 (might be a year out there!!) Mum made the beautiful outfits (even the hats!)
So I'll be back with more sewing news later,
