A Bag For My Crochet

I have started making granny squares but I looked rather disorganised  carrying it about in the bag from the wool shop. So I made this bag with a fabric I really like .It has tiny blue birds and red hearts which don't really show up too well on the photo. But that is why it has blue handles and red flowers.
The flowers are from Sew Pretty Homestyle and I really enjoyed making them, and will be making a few more of those I think. The photo is a little fuzzy but I had had a few glasses of wine when I took it so that's my excuse.(HicHic)

My Lighthouse quilt is coming along nicely too I am at the quilting stage, a good job really as I need it next Friday. The photo shows the centre of the quilt I will take another when it is finished.

Pincushion Swap

I woke up yesterday to find a package waiting for me on the doormat. It was the pincushion that Cheryl from Willowberry Designs had sent, I love it, it came with a lovely Thimble Pip. I think I may have to make a few of these for Christmas gifts. It is a stitchery, the stitches are so tiny and the fabric on the back and on the Thimble Pip is the same range as one of the rotary cutter cases I made last week. How lucky am I :)

Pauline has received  her Santa Sack so I can show you the finished Sack now. It ended up a bit larger than I expected though but I really like it.

A Productive Week

I have had a very productive week so far. I think this may be due to the fact that there has only been Lily
 and myself in the house all week.

My eldest has moved into his own apartment, my daughter has gone to the Peak District for week and my DH is working afternoons so it is very very quiet. I don't like it much I have to admit.

I made these two different rotary cutter cases but I can't decide which one I like the most, I do like the butterfly button on the green one though. I made them both as gifts to put away for Christmas. My gift basket is filling up quiet nicely now.

I also made these two cross stitches pin cushions.

I wanted to make a picnic rug for my holidays ( short notice, but that is me) and decided on a lighthouse themed one. I have finished all the blocks and am waiting on the postman for the border fabric I also can't decide on the sashing colour either. I had better hurry up though as we go in 19 days.

Well it is back to the sewing machine for me. I hope you all have a very productive
