LAST NIGHT....

... was Congleton Quilt Group meeting ... we had an on the night make .. NOW I had every intention of doing the project .. BUT one of the tea ladies was not well ... and ..well.. you know we CANNOT function without our cuppa and a biscuit .. SO I was the stand-in-tea-lady .. and did not get my sewing done xx

This morning I DID make my little ..

 
 

...bag x Its not as good as it could be .. but its my first and I did not have the instructions!! so the old brain had to WORK!! lol x

We also got our Christmas Challenge packets .. it is only a few weeks away people !!!!

Our Gallant Leader was at a wedding in South Africa this summer and so ..


...we have a feather!! ..some African fabric .. a bell !! .. and some African buttons .... desperate for IDEAS here !! mmm .. none appearing at the moment!

I have to report also that my grandson and I stopped on the way home from the school run yesterday and I now HAVE the wallpaper for the front room .. AND.. new curtains!! OH MY!!  He has been informed that if its not right or doesn't look GOOD he will be held responsible!! lol x

Off for a brew to rest my poor grey matter ... and to get over the amount of money I "calmly" handed over x

Maybe that pretty little bag is to put those pieces while you come up with an idea.

Lovely little basket (two circles with interfacing inside gathered, basted and bound?) I look forward to seeing what you do with your challenge!
