Its been a wild and wooly night but nothing like people living further up the NSW coast.
Do you read other peoples blogs and wonder how they produce such beautiful work so quickly? I do. Maybe it comes with experience? Maybe I'm just slow? I do aspire to be like them, I suppose some would say I have sewing envy, haha.
I have been doing some hand sewing that I cant show at the moment. I have been using some Presencia thread. Very nice to sew with.
A couple of weeks ago, Anthea showed us a lovely bag she had made with blue fabric. At the time I commented to her how I liked the fabric then realised I had bought some also.
I ummed and ahhed about what to make and this is my finished tote:
I found the pattern on Allpeoplequilt.com. The front section is quilted and is two pockets. The design wasn't lined but I have lined it and added an inside pocket. I really like it and intend to use it for everyday for a while. I want to make a backpack, do you have a favourite pattern for one? I'd love to know.
While sewing yesterday our pup, Charlie found a comfy bed for himself on some wadding. He moved before I could take the original position but here he is .........
I bought Charlie as a companion for my hubbie when I worked. He now shares himself around between us.
Enjoy your weekend.
