There might be a slight irony in that most sewing I got done over the long weekend was completed in the first day, but after that I was taking some photos, enjoying the nice weather and doing some long thinking and designing. I got fabrics cut and fused for a new bag, but that’s as far as I got up until Monday night, and then last night I went climbing after work and my arms hurt so much I wasn’t sewing after that! Tonight I’m shredding, so I should be okay ;o) Hope you all had a lovely easter weekend and got to play as much as you would like.
Finishes This Week:
I think my favourite finish of the week was my Umbrella Prints Trimmings Competition bag:
Closely followed by my photo prop quilt:
And then I got a couple of bee blocks done for Rebecca Lynne, and got so excited at getting to the PO, that I forgot to take photos, sorry!
In Progress This Week:
I’ve turned some of this into the aforementioned bits of bag, I hope to show you more soon, although I’m away down to mum and dad’s for the weekend so we can go to Uttoxeter on Saturday to the British Quilt And Stitch Village (where the long lost rainbow is currently hiding out), so it might not be done by next week…
To Be Worked On This Week:
The bag above
Sorting out the other 2 patterns I was working on
Hope you all have a great week! Linking up, as ever, to:
The bag is lovely, great fabric combinations and I love a zip for security.
Getting a bag and a quilt finished is a great weeks work. Did you pick the fabrics in the bag to match your hooks?
Well, I was thinkin of finishing some cake…! Do you climb indoors, or out? One of my fav sports 🙂
I wouldn't be able to do much after a climbing session these days either – such a long time since I last went -bet it was fun though. Have a lovely time with your mum and dad. Juliex
LOVE the quilt!!!!
Thank you so much :o)
Beautiful finishes! What were you climbing?
LOVE both your finishes!
I'm a climber too, it's a been a long while though! Need to get back into it … rather hindered by babies!!
Great bag and quilt finishes! And I love the dragonfly fabric.
Love that bag, Katy, what pattern is it, or is it one of your own?

Love your bag. The colours are bright and happy.
Came along from Molli Sparkles discussion, lovely bag! I really like your blog, you now have another follower.
Thank you very much :o)
I've got a pile of shredding too, and I've found stuff that's from 2002, can I chuck it or do I have to shred it? For now I've archived it! Climbing is beyond me, unless it's 'climbing the walls' which happens regularly at work
That bag is amazing!!! Is it wrong, that i really love the hooks too?
Love the elephant bag!!!
Gorgeous bag K! Jxo
The bag is very special and the quilt is lovely
Two lovely finishes. The quilt looks brilliant !
Love, love, love the umbrella prints bag! I bought the trimmings kit one year and failed to come up with anything. This is perfect!
