I have been getting a little stitching done, but have had some busy days on the farm and at work, with lots of school and sport happenings for the kids too. Below is the beginnings of the charm pack quilt using Pom Pom de Paris, and the new pattern book I purchased a while back. The fabrics are so pretty and it's coming together pretty nicely so far.
These are two halves of a bag I started making for a friend about eighteen months ago, and I threw it away in a hissy fit after I sewed the strips all together in the wrong order. I finally dragged it out and and have got it to this stage, half the quilting is done now so it won't take long to finish it off now. She did say there was no hurry when she asked me but I don't think she ever suspected it would take this long. The bag is Angel Pin Carry Bag by Rosalie Quinlan, and it is such an easy bag, this is the third one I've (nearly) made.
It has been a terribly wet few days here, which then turned to snow last night and most of this morning. The sun is out now though, so the thaw is on. Still cold though, so I might get that bag finished yet! Or maybe even catch up on my Tis the Season stitching .................
It's been a big sporting weekend here with the World Netball Champs to watch each night, our Silver Ferns have made it through the quarters and semis and tonight is the big final against the Aussie Diamonds. What a battle that will be - hope we come away with the spoils!!! And then there was the Super 15 final last night, which sadly the Crusaders lost to the Reds, but is was a very close exciting game.
Hope you're enjoying a lovely weekend, take care .............. Nicky
