Didn't know what to call this post, since I haven't posted for a couple of weeks so time for a good catch up. I haven't been idle though. Since the last time I have made a label for my bed settee quilt (the most important part of a quilt, try remembering when you've made something when there isn't one!)
I've had a recent session of bag making, with this drawstring bag (minus the drawstring, I've got to get some cord), with some funky scooter fabric that I bought from Bramble Patch last summer
Been to any January sales? I let the post Christmas rush pass and made a leisurely trip to Castlepoint, a shopping centre in Bournemouth to have a mooch around M&S, Next and Monsoon. Managed to get a coat, skirt and top from Monsoon. Seemed to be rather drawn to the skirt which had hexagons and diamond shapes on it, can't think why, anybody would think I was a patchworker!
I also manage to go to work as well. I said I hadn't been idle ;o)
