Weekend with friends

This weekend I’ve been with quilting friends at a cabin.  Only four of us this time, but we had a lot of fun and got a lot of sewing done.

I was working on a new bag (Anni Downs design)

And hand quilting on my snowman quilt.

The rain was pouring down, so it was great having a lot of sewing with me.  This time I actually had manage not to bring A LOT of projects.

Only the bag as my sewing machine project.  So when I have done all that I could do at the moment (of course I had forgotten to bring the magnetic closure and buttons) I had no more machine sewing to do.  And another whole day……. of course I could hand quilt my snowmen, or make some more star blocks.  But I started to make a little purse to go with my bag.

I also took time to prep this EPP project.  Easy to bring with me.

When I came home today I finished the bag.  This is the front

And the back.

And this is the little purse I made.  Nice to keep a little handsewing project in my bag.

And here is my new bag and purse.  Fun to have something new when going to the big quilt festival at Gardermoen in a few weeks.

Both the new bag and the purse are really beutiful . I have the pattern too, but I don't think I am going to make the bag this Year.
