Tomorrow the Giving Thanks Blog Hop, hosted by Michele over at Quilting Gallery will begin and I’m excited! I will be participating and so are many more bloggers all around the world, after all, there’s much to be thankful for, wherever you are!!!
The list of bloggers participating in the Blog Hop Party will be made available Thursday late afternoon on November 21st, 2013 (Eastern time). Come back tomorrow and click on the banner on the top of my sidebar then to start hopping and entering the give-aways from your fellow quilters.
I can’t give too much more away, suffice to say I am giving away a………………….shhhhhhh……oops, can’t tell till tomorrow~!!!!!
So make sure you come back then to find out some more!!!!
In the meantime, I’ve been working on finishing my stable bag that I began on the weekend and I’m glad to say, it’s done!
I had fun playing around with the decorative stitches on my machine to quilt the panels…..
practiced some piping, and even learnt how to cover cord for the handles….
There’s plenty of room in there with two big pockets, and the dowelling that’s hidden inside the white ‘loops’ really gives the bag some structure.
I’m loving the ‘pretty in pink’ handles and I’ve made them even stronger by adding a bit of grosgrain to the underside……
See what I mean by I’m lovin’ it!?!???
I was surprised at how quickly this came together…..and no, unfortunately I don’t have the pattern…..this was a workshop that was a ‘show and tell, show and do’ kinda one! Perhaps I should try to convince the lady who shared it with me to write a pattern!!!!!! After all, it was super easy and pretty fast to put together….. about a day in total. I’m sure I’m going to have to make a few in different colours, and even a small one as a mug bag for guild meetings!!!
Hope you’ve been getting some stitching done too….and remember to check in with me tomorrow for my giveaway in the blog hop party!
Sugary hugs xox :o)
