I managed to get a little bit done and lo and behold, a finish!
Bob asked if I could make a peg bag just like Gail used to as his had fallen apart. I decided to use some really bright fabric that Bob had gifted me from Gail's stash that reminded me of her. She was an Islander who dressed in bright fabrics often with tribal-type prints so I thought this would be perfect. It wasn't till I'd finished that I noticed that I 'almost' matched the pattern in the centre front seam....totally unplanned but how wonderful! So that's a finish for me this month.
I recently won a gorgeous pattern by Melissa Grant of One Day In May called 'Bunnies in the Blackberries' Zipper Pouch. It's a gorgeous design, as are all of Melissa's, and as I shared my win with my beautiful friend Joy, we decided to stitch it together in a virtual stitch along. We were joined by another good friend, Miche'le from NZ who'd bought the pattern, so we've been stitching along together getting it done. I was a little slow in starting with all the things going on, but I began it Friday night and I'm really pleased with my progress.....
Isn't it cute??? I just love bunnies and as we can't own them up here in Queensland, this is the closest I'll get. When I was a child living in Victoria, we used to have bunnies as pets then, but seeing as I've been a Queenslander since I was 13, that has been an eternity ago. So before too long we'll all have bunnies hopping about in our sewing rooms! We'll be sharing our progress on our Facebook pages and I'm sure Instagram will get a look in too!
I'm so pleased with having another finish and another underway. Pop by HERE to catch up with the other ladies that joined in on Friday night to see what they got up to.
Now for the draw. Seeing as I missed last month's (don't know how or why?) I'll do that one too!
and Congratulations too to May's winner.....
Ladies, your prizes will be out in the mail this week.
