Sunday Sitrep

So it's Sunday already, and I spent a delightful day yesterday with Philipa Naylor, drying a workshop honing my free motion quilting skills. I feel all fired up and ready to tackle some class samples ... But that will be for another day....

In the mean time I have made a start, as always a last minute start, on my Mouthy stitches 2 tote bag ...




So I'm thinking of that beautiful Irish linen (thank you Judith!) as the basis of the body, the blue/green Kaffe floral and the text fabric for a few bits of piecing to be inset in the linen, and then the greens, either as the lining ....

Well that's where I was before I stopped to make lunch, oh, and I may have snuck a mincemeat and marzipan cake in the oven too! Shhhh, he doesn't know about that yet!

And just so you don't think I've been doing absolutely nothing ....



I loaded this one up onto the frame this morning too!

No rest for the wicked in this house at the weekends! Oh, I must have been very wicked!

(In the interest of getting this post published and out there, I may come back later and put in the links from my laptop)
