Argh. I've still not been feeling great hence no posts. Not really made anything of late. Still need to get hubby to take pics of skirts, and there's a dress I made a while back too.
Here are some pics of my sewing bag. It has all my embroidery threads, scissors, needlebook etc in it. Made with some fabric from a sample book and some heavy duty canvas. It was my first attempt at free-motion quilting. It was quite fun. The bag can stand up on its own which is funny.

In my area there is an Art exhibition which takes place in people's homes, the organsiers asked people if they could donate fabric triangles for bunting, with time on my hands I cut out a LOT of triangles but also decided to make a bag for the bunting. I tried writing with the sewing machine for the first time, I am quite proud that it's legible!

And finally pictures of growing things...

Tomatoes which will hopefully ripen at some point.

Pretty pink dahlia, never grown these before but they are very happy in the garden!

And lovely lilies, they smell gorgeous!

And finally the first pea pod!! They were great but we need to be better organised next year and grow more. We're still munching our way through mountains of mangetout which are delicious.

Off on holiday next week but promise when I get back I will be better at posting and indeed crafting! Got orders from my sister in law for crayon rolls and tiny tote bags for her friends' kids for Xmas, so I really will need to get on.
