Mid week catch-up

It's been a busy week in my sewing room and I have finally finished Lunar Lapin! I bought this kit when I visited the Festival of Quilts back in August but have only just got round to making her!! The kit was excellent and included everything, including pins and the instructions were clear and easy to follow.  The only trouble I had was setting in the little sleeves of the dress.  The fabric, a lovely liberty print was quite slippery and the curves very tight but I got there!!  

My second finish is a favourite bag pattern by Carlene Westberg Designs - her Jumbo Drawstring Bag.  This is a great bag, big and roomy with lots of sectioned pockets inside and because it's drawstring there's no zippers to insert!!! It makes a great craft bag and I can't get enough of them!! This ones made using a selection of lovely Lotta Jansdotter prints that I bought at Sew Modern in LA earlier this year.

I still haven't put my Kaffe Fassett triangles together but I am spending a lovely sewing day over at my friend Imelda's house on Saturday so here's hoping!

Happy sewing.......... Jacky O
