still ambling along ...

... more baking, emergency cookies for an impromptu visitor,


who had a delivery, and when I'm done with it I will show you!

and my Tripple Zippy Pouch ...



which just happens to be  twinnie to Annabella's 

and I started quilting those great big Vintage Modern Stars


which is on my FAL list, so I'm making progress, about half way through quilting at the minute, 
good progress :) 

and I rustled up a bag, saw a pattern, looked simple enough for a bag dunce like me


and it was!  
I'd make this again, but I would probably make it slightly bigger and add a zippered pocked to the inside lining too.

ah, yes, and then there has been some swapping of ugly fabrics happening about these parts ...


I guess up to 10 years old, not used constitutes ugly in my book!
though one recipient really loved it!

and there was also a little relaxation ...


with possibly one of my oldest UFO's, but that's a whole other story!

Emergency cookies? Well that's a new one ;o) Loving the new bag! BTW, I inherited over 3m of 1980s home dec Liberty I really must get it donated somewhere, I just fear it'll be a booby prize ;o)

Love the bag, the quilting on the star and the cookies and adore the hand quilting!

Wendy said...

You put everyone to shame with the amount of work you do, and then you even have time to make cookies. I assume you don't sleep?

Loving the look of the machine quilting, more photos please. But equally impressed with that hand quilting - isn't it a relaxing thing to do, we forget don't we?
