Little Square Bag

Don't know if I've mentioned it before, but I belong to the British Quilters List in Yahoo Groups.   Recently a member posted a link for a little square bag, and it looked so cute and useful that I just had to have one, and this is it

With 4 little side pockets plus a roomy centre it's going to be very handy next to my machine and might - just might- help me control those bits and pieces that keep disappearing just when I need them :-)

If you'd like to make one, all you have to do is leave Genevieve a comment here and she'll send you the tutorial.  It is written in French, but there are plenty of photos which clearly explain the method making it a quick and easy project.

Still Here !

Its been a long, long time since I last blogged, but here I am again!

Why no blogging ?  Well, it's been a very hard, very long , and very wet Winter with not a great deal to write about to be honest other than boring day to day stuff which I am sure you'd rather not hear about :-)

The up side to the miserable weather is that I've managed to get through quite a lot on the sewing side of life. 2 finished quilts quickly replaced by 2 quilts in waiting  or UFOs in other words :-) I've also been practicing hard at my FMQ and even bought a couple of FMQ courses from Craftsy which I've found extremely helpful. Once our weather settles down and its less windy I hope to get some photos to share.

One really bright light in the middle of  all this gloom was the newest arrival to our ever growing family - please meet Penny, here with big sister Daisy.

Just 3 weeks old and weighing in at 9lbs 3ozs, she is just gorgeous, and I can't wait to meet here in person !
