Hello there, how is your Saturday going? I have had a great day in my sewing room, preparing a few blocks for some works in progress and finishing up a couple of things. Firstly here is the bag I started early in January. I'm really pleased with this, it's a nice little size, and I am really loving these Nicey Jane fabrics. This was my first experience with ruffles and the result is not too bad!

This little flanged pillow is a Lizzie Kate freebie, the fabric I've finished it with looks red here, but is actually a very dark pink with cream spots.

This little lavender pillow is not todays work, but was my only January OPAM finish, and also my first Sew It's Finished finish for the year. My list of works in progress at the start of the year was fairly large(a little understatement maybe) and I'm endeavouring to work on it with all the Sew It's Finished girls again in 2012. I think this was started about 6 years ago, and it only needed the opening closed, took about 4 minutes max!! There really is something wrong with me! But - it is done now..........

It's a long weekend here in NZ, where we are celebrating out national day, Waitangi Day on Monday. Tomorrow we are heading to Central Otago for a little jetboating, and guess who's coming with us? I'm sure you can get proper pet lifejackets, but we were just trying this old one on Kelly for size this afternoon ......
