.. and the one's I made.... and a new blogger to meet....

A gift that I couldn't share before TheBeardedManinTheRedSuit bungied by...

My SSCS (run by Chookyblue) gift was for Tanje (Nemo) in Norway

I made a little snowflake ornie with a tinkle bell....


and for her main present a tote bag ......


almost a 'sampler' bag... different blocks front and back which make up pockets....
flying geese and block piecing
quilted throughout


lined with lots of pockets inside (as I know treasures leap into bags)


Nemo is fond of mice so I made this little one to fit in a pocket....
(this is a very cute pattern from Bustle and Sew)


I loved making this bag - I hope Nemo loves it too

There's heaps of gifts and ornaments being shown on Chookyblue's blog if you fancy some inspiration


I'd love to introduce you to Helen.....

I met Helen when she came into one of my favourite LQS to buy a quilt.... she was told she couldn't buy one but she was welcome to join a bunch of us and make one.....  we were sewing to make quilts for people affected by the floods.....

She is a great friend and I have no doubt her blog will be great fun... she covers furniture, gets her hands dirty refurbishing homes, and is game to try all sorts of new things... sewing, knitting -  she did make a lovely quilt too (since she couldn't buy one) .... and has a wicked sense of humour.... you can see a few of her projects on her new blog 

I hope you can pop by and say G'day.....
