I MANAGED ....

... to get some sewing today. I had the pieces for this cut out and ready to go ..


....so it was a quick job to sew... after a while reading the instructions!.. they were not very clear.. mind you to be honest .. they were not improved by my dropping them into a bowl of water!! lol

This..


....was our make from Sandbach Quilt Group last meeting. I changed the closure .... it was originally elastic .. but I didn't have any .. so improvised xx.. as you do x..



I LOVE to read and ALWAYS have at least one on the go . I just finished..


......which is about Penelope Deveraux who was a Lady-in-waiting to Queen Elizabeth the First .. enjoyable but don't know if I would read it again .. in contrast to ..


......which I am reading for (at least!!) the third time x When I REALLY like a book I first...read it quickly to discover the story .. then again to find the " interesting bits" I missed xx

Oh Diane I had to giggle at you wetting your instructions!!! I am a visual learner so find it easier to watch someone else make something then I can have a go! But you did well and it looks fantastic!! Great idea.

Love the Organizer a couple of quick questions....Is there a Name/ Pattern for that out there where I can find it and could I make the backflip/cover do double duty as a small iron pad or felt covered layout board? What size is it?
Thank you for the posting, I think ....Its got my mind running in circles again for Christmas love tokens for quilting group.

What an interesting organizer! It is handy to have it stand up that way! As for reading, I applaud your diversity. I just finished a trashy romance it was set in Edinburgh and am almost through a prize winner novel about a cooking class which has been "delicious" reading.
