My final set of orphan blocks that were hanging around, were a couple of +&x ones that I had made for Emily in our Bee a Brit Stingy hive. If you look closely you will see that they were not that perfect so I just put them down as practise blocks. In my bid to tidy up my sewing area I decided that I would make them into a bag that was big enough to fit my iPad into. This is what I came up with.

The blocks aren't perfect but they have made a roomy bag that I just love. Please note the lining is another man's shirt (Came via a friend as her hubby was having a clear out - yay!).
Last night I went along to the 'Stitching it Together' evening at Tanya's and met up with Moria, Trudy and of course Tanya. We were going to do a bit of QAGY and I was meant to be showing everyone how to do it. I took this job seriously and made a couple of samples up and even did a handout!
We were so busy chatting,laughing, drinking tea and eating cake that we really didn't get started. It was a fun evening despite our lack of sewing!
I have also been pinging emails back and forth to this lovely lady. We have challenged each other to get on with our FAL list. I know that I have been avoiding mine! So here is a photo to prove that I have started on a long abandoned quilt. I decided to quilt this in straight (ish) lines across the quilt and to date, I haven't got very far with it.
|Getting down to business|
I have lugged my machine downstairs and set up in the dining room as the table is nice and big. I do hope that the boredom of going up and down this quilt won't get to me. Lets hope that the play on Radio 4 will be good today!!! Now I am off to find out!
