Well, and energetic Sunday anyway.
Saturday saw me finish off some of the little charity shorts, which have now been delivered to Ellen to pass along to the Dress A Child charity. I have used lots of large scrap pieces and yards of elastic, but I know that someone will be happy to wear them, even if they are a bit colourful!!
|Counted up 26 pairs!|
So then I began the Amy Butler Weekender Bag I know that I have been going on about starting this for .... ages, but life has just got in the way, and when I realised that there was no way it was going to be done before my holiday, it was put back in the drawer, to wait even longer
I had read quite a few reviews on this pattern - some good - some not quite so - it seems that as you use several layers of different waddings, this can be a tricky little beggar to get through the sewing machine. Then I read this Blog by Elizabeth Hartman so I invested in some cotton "duck" fabric, which basically is a heavy canvas, and am using this method to construct my bag.
It's quite a nice way to use up more of the scrap box too!
It's quilted as you go, so the panels are quite sturdy.
|added a larger piece that would be hidden behind the pocket|

Sunday saw us over at Wendover visiting
|to soggy underfoot for a pram!|
|that white speck near the pin is the girls house|
|and we started off WAY down there|
The walk certainly worked up healthy appetites, and lunch was delicious. Plates were scrapped clean.
This is what happened as soon as Little Miss was put in the car!
|and he was driving!|
A not very nice visit to the dentist this morning, but when I got home, these two beauties had moved in. Thank you for the speedy delivery
|I just love Hares|
