This is a bad photo of the cute little sewing box that Judy sent me, as part of my prize. and another of it open with two fat quarters, a sewing kit, tape measure, eye glasses case (with sewing theme), needle book (to attach to your machine), notebook and a missing block of Lindt chocolate....hmmm wonder where that went!
I spent a lovely day hand stitching with friends last weekend and this is Lisa's show and tell, her finished Temecula flying geese quilt. I am really annoyed at myself, I have only made approximately 12 geese and shoved them in a box somewhere! But the beauty is the inspiration I need....the fabrics are so beautiful....I might need to add some to my stash!
The only real sewing I have done is a whole lot of zip pouches, with Aussie themed fabric, mainly a Kookaburra and koala print with gum flowers on it, I brought recently at Maldon.
The yellow and green prints have maps of Australia and the yellow pouch is lined with a green print that is a Aussie native leaf print...I forget the name right now, but it is silver in colour and florists use it as filler.
I have also made a some shoe bags and drawstring bag (sorry forgot to take photos they have already been gifted) all gifts for the trip we are taking for a family wedding.
I really think I need one of these pouches for myself....hoping that I can squeeze in some sewing time today!
Happy quilting Sue.
