lazy Sunday afternoon

just spent time stitching the afternoon away in lovely Winter sunshine....
making slow progress on this gorgeous Rosalie Quinlan design
never seem to get enough time to just sit and stitch these days!
hope you have had a lovely afternoon doing something you love,

for a friend

 made this for a friend at work who has just purchased her first home....
something for her table,
something to nibble on,
something to get ideas from for the kitchen....
 had lots of little bits leftover over...
and they became this,
for me!
testing out my very rusty FMQ skills with some pebble quilting!
don't look too closely....
going to bind with hot pink polka dots (if I have enough left!)

secret stitching

working on some secret stitching for a dear friend,
all pieced together,
now to decide on the quilting,
think I have a plan...

it's cold,
it's wet,
it's miserable outside,
glad I'm in here,
cozy and warm
planning on what to start stitching now...

finished, finally

This is my bag from hell, don't get me wrong, the pattern and instructions are totally awesome, but not when you change your fabric to a thick denim (recycling the DH jeans) it had to be modified in several places...the lining wouldn't go in the way it was supposed to, the inner seams are all exposed, attaching the handle tabs was a nightmare...the list goes on....
Would I make this again? YES, but with only quilt weight fabric and interfacing. It looks great and I think will be very functional, happy with the result even if it did make me crazy!

no mojo....
