Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer, do...

A special bag for my friend Lucimar whose birthday is tomorrow.
Fabric is vintage, from the sale at Patchwork House a couple of months ago. It was pretty musty smelling so had to soak it in vinegar then wash a couple of times.
Red and white lining - mobile phone pocket, red ric-rac and button clasp.
Fourth bag in 3 days - I'M ON FIRE!!!
Went out to our favourite kid-friendly restaurant for dinner tonight. I bought 3/4 of my seafood and avocado salad home. The portions are huge! We can usually order one Spaghetti Carbonara to feed all four of us - and the kids eat loads of it. I'm on the weight reduction bandwagon though, hence the slightly healthier option.
In and out in an hour..., home for 7pm bedtime..., me not having to cook..., Beautiful...!

Once upon a time (yesterday) I made a bag. It wasn't actually this bag, but another one.

I took it to Kinder and showed some of the gals. They really liked it!

Then Charlie and I went shopping. I went into a favourite clothes shop of mine. The owner saw my bag. She loved it! She asked me if I would make some bags for her shop.

 I came home and started drafting patterns. I bought some fabric and used some that I had in my stash. I cut into my Heather Ross! Glory be!

I finished up all the bits and bobs tonight, including the label, which I love.
Will the discerning women of the inner-east of Melbourne fall in love with my creations, of which there will initally be five??? 

Watch this space!

Japanese blocks

I'm having a bit of trouble with my brain today. Can't seem to get simple measurements right and have had to unpick this ruddy thing 3 times so far as it's too small. So much for simple Log Cabin! Arghhhhh!

Mind you, look at this minefield. I particularly like the Clone Wars cards that mysteriously find there way to where I'm working!

I finished my mini quilt!

It was very hard to give it away as I fell more and more in love with each stitch.

Now I am going to make a replica for the centre of my Beehive blocks which will hopefully be a quilt for our bed.
