FIS Swap Sent..........

Well I had something else planned to make for the Hatched and Patched Swap for Teresa in the Friends in Stitching online group (private group) but once i got this pattern at GDITC I just had to make it up...............
the pattern is "No Place Like Home"
I changed the thread colours to match my bag fabrics............Moda "Aviary"
I used a honey bun for the outer bag and I think I have enough left to make another outside............
I added a pocket to the inside of the bag too...........
the bottom was fiddly but I am so glad I persisted............now I want one for myself.............
This has been a wonderful swap.........
&&&
Also thanks for all the comments on my post about Curly Pops.............late yesterday she was looking pretty good and moved up the paddock more and was feeding away so all great signs...........the calf is going really well.......I'm sorry I haven't replied to all the comments (thanks very much for them) but yesterday went pear shaped and I ended up mustering sheep for shearing today............
Catch you later..............

  21. The bag is lovely, how much of the honey bun does it use? Love the colours you have made it in. Why was the bottom fiddly is it different to a normal bag?? Sorry about all the questions. One more what colour threads did you use?
    I'd like one myself, so pretty!

  25. Glad Curly Pops is OK now - do you name all your cows? We have relatives who own dairy cows (probably the wrong term) but they name them all - and each year they have a different letter to start the names with. Serioulsy love that bag - lucky Teresa but I suspect something equally lovely is on its way to you too.
