I'm back!!

Yes I'm finally back on my blog and in the "hive"!! It's been two whole weeks since I last wrote a post and shared what I've been up to.

I have been off work looking after our two beautiful whippets whilst Simon has walked "the Camino" in Spain, now this should have afforded me plenty of blogging and sewing time but not so, not once lovely daughter realised this meant I was free for babysitting and helping with dump runs etc!! Still it was Easter and it has been lovely to spend time with family and friends.

Still I have got a couple of finishes to share with you.  First up is a beach bag, made for lovely daughter - she told me that now she lives near the beach she needs one!! This was made using a Lakeside Gatherings charm pack I had that has anchors and birds on the fabric.The design is just a bigger version of a drawstring bag I've made before except this time I added a zippered pocket inside to keep keys etc safe.

It's very roomy and I added a thick cord drawstring to keep the nautical theme!!

Next is a small lap quilt that I've been working on in grey, black and yellow. I had such fun making this as there were no rules or pattern to follow I just kept adding fabric until each block was about 17" square, then I trimmed them all to 16 1/2".  I also added some of the fabric to the backing to break up the black. It hasn't got a name yet.........any suggestions????

Well that's it for this post. I won't leave it so long until the next!

Happy stitching............ Jacky O
