As I moved around our group, taking photos to show the latest makes of our members, Val had left the hanging she was quilting on her table and unwittingly left her specs too and this is what I saw! I think the other ladies thought I was being rude and laughing at Val's lovely piece of quilting but I just saw the funny side .... that lion had been to Specsavers!
I'm joining in Friday Smile with this and if you pop over to Annie's blog you can start the weekend with even more smiles.
Just received my Block of the Month from Diane the Cheshire Quilter
Love the colours and Flying Geese design but I was fascinated to see how the triangles are sewn leaving a seamed in flap on each side. I need to know how to make these for sure.
Thanks to Diane for a really unusual BOM
I recalled that a couple of years ago, Alison, a friend from Vicky Stampers, had made a Handbag Tidy roll.
Can't remember what Alison's looked like so, I thought I'd play around to see what I could make with the same intention, i.e., something to organise all the bits and bobs that I can never find in my in handbags. My bag is always like the Bermuda Triangle!
This simple make closes neatly, with Velcro to fit any bag........
Customised with lots of pockets of various sizes inside and outside to hold cards, pen, first aid plasters, notepad, wipes, receipts, tissues, phone, and all the necessary? junk that we just have to carry round in our handbags.
There's a springy clip to hold keys
When folded or rolled, everything can be easily located, or the whole thing pops in and out of a bag to change over to another bag.
Any ideas to add to it? I'd welcome a few constructive criticisms as I'm still trying to perfect it.
I also made a few more of these cute little round zip pouches which are so handy for loose coins or keys. So easy to make and it was one of the challenges given to me by Diane, the Cheshire Quilter, as a fundraiser for Hope Hospices.
I'm looking forward to our group's trip tomorrow to Sticky Fingers Quilt Exhibition in Coppull and if you want all the details, times and place they're all at the end of my previous post or on our group's quilt cornerstone blog.
