Agenda for today--- Sewing

What a beautiful day here in Sydney. Spring is in the air and I started the day with a long walk to exercise both my darling dog and myself. Then I don't feel guilty for sitting all day in my craft room.

Just as well I went out early as the wild windy weather has started up again. The only thing that this wind is good for is getting the washing dry. At least the temperature is in the high 20's Celsius.

I am going to a sewing retreat in a few weeks and decided that a new bag to carry all my supplies was needed. The fabric is so cute that I just couldn't leave it in the patchwork shop when I saw it. What do you think?
 The collection of Fabric is by Helen Stubbings
"Nice People Nice Things" for Red Rooster Fabrics

I have embroidered a side pocket to go on the outside of the bag using parts of a pattern from Blue Willow Cottage called 'Threads of Friendship' .

I'll have more photos when I have finished........ back to the sewing machine for now.

All Finished. Here are the photos of the front and back of the bag, I am very happy with the results.


 Hope you are having a creative day.


  1. Those materials look great Liz. I am afraid my card making takes preference to any sewing. I have so much fleecy to run up but can't get motivated - cards too important. lol

    1. I love my card making too, Lindsay, so sometimes I am torn between the two. I can't decide which I like more!!
