Welcome Friends Project Caddy.........

Finally I have my Welcome Friends Project Caddy finished...........yep minus the stitchery but it is done..........I am very happy..........really enjoyed making it............I had to get it finished and posted before Farmyard Crafts had her's finished with the stitchery panel............

Love it love it love it......thanks Rosalie..............(patterns available about 20 June)

But I had to go into town today so I went and spent the rest of the day stitching with friends............one of the girls had "jelly beans" cause I was finishing my project caddy in there.......so we decided to whip one up...........slightly modified Rosalie's pattern so it could be made from fat 1/4's..........it is a bit smaller so it won't fit a stitching hoop............

Interesting seeing the difference in light and medium weight pellon (I didn't know there were different ones) but I think if you have the medium weight pellon you would only use one layer.............I had the lighter one..............the girls used the medium weight..........

when we started this "Hells Bells" got jealous she was missing out so we cut this one out for her............Hells was not finished but I had to go get the kids.........so I took a quick snap.........."Simplicity by 3 Sisters" fabrics

and Hells Bells also pulled out these strips so we cut another one...........and unfortunately it was only to this stage when I had to leave but I LOVE the colours...........it will have a chocolate lining

both the girls are doing the Breast Cancer BOM..............this is one version so far...........looks great and makes me want to do it to but I just know i don't have the time.........

Hells Bells brought some bags she had made to show us............

easter bag...........

frilly.............cute.........

The foot is improving...........and after a good nights sleep the back is feeling much better..........and an easier day today was great...........

I have taken my pics of the tea swap I received but just waiting for an email back from Bonnie before I show you.............just wanted to check something with her..............

.........take care til next time.............

  2. Luv, luv, luv the bag Chooky...very dainty. I can feel a bag sewing day coming on. However, am in Newcastle at the moment, so it will be down the track. Am using a friends laptop to keep in touch with my blogging friends.
