Blossom and Bloom
Just had to show you my weekends handiwork. Yesterday I finished my first ever bag - now know what a gusset is! It all went together very nicely and I'm very pleased with it. The pattern is Blossom and Bloom from Cinderberry Stitches. I loved the fabrics that Natalie used in her sample and mine is the same except for a slightly different pink floral. Encouraged by the success of this first effort, I think this bag will be the first in a long line. Here you can see the stitchery on the other side.
It's been unusually hot here the last few days. Molly and I went to the beach yesterday. She had a lovely time swimming in the waves and running around with all the other dogs. Here she is recovering from all the exertion and drying off in the sun at home.
Olly was lying close by under a chair, keeping her company, and looking cute as usual.
Thank you to Stina who has joined my Pay it Forward Challenge. There is still room for two more if anyone else is interested. See my last post for the details.
I got a nice surprise yesterday when Catherine from Quilt Obsession left a message to say I had won a prize in her Inklingo giveaway. Inklingo is completely new to me so I'm very keen to try it out. Thank you Catherine.
Well, I guess I'd better go and do my school preparation for tomorrow. Should have started earlier but blogging seemed a more attractive proposition! Tomorrow is our Easter assembly - I have four little girls, including niece Tali, singing a quartet.
