A girl needs a new bag

A quilter needs a new bag........always

and at least when she is going to the annual quilt meeting. I have had this pattern for a long time and now it was time to make this travelling bag. I have been sewing on this for several days, and still have a lot of work to do on it. Now I see the shape of it and I really like it. I plan to make a small purse also before going to the quilt meeting.

This week I also started on the christmas present I got from Bjørg. Have to make three more dresden plates before sewing it all together.

Four blocks on the Life is Beutiful is done. Enjoy having these small stitcheries.

And now I have had time to make some small stitcheries for the hexagon purses from Birdhouse design. I won this pattern some time ago and it has been on my sewing table ready to be sewed.

Saying for today:

Housework won't kill you
but why take the chance

The bag looks fantastic and it is huge. I'm sure it will fit all your projects for show & tell at the annual Quilt meeting.
The 'life is beautiful'stitchery looks great, I really must start on that too. The fabric is gathering dust :)

God Søndag :O)

Man kan helt klart ALDRI få nok vesker og bagger. Og når du skal på Årsmøte er det helt sikkert avgjørende for turen å ha en ny veske - det er jeg overbevist om :O)

Julegaven du fikk ser ut til å bli veldig fin. Det er ganske broligende å sy Dresden plates.

Ha en fortsatt god kveld og en strålende uke!

klem fra Yvonne
