I’ve received one of those nasty emails from our internet provider advising us that we have nearly reached our download limit for the month. I don’t think I could handle a really slow internet speed, so instead of spending time reading blogs, for the next week I will be sewing. I will actually have something to write about when we click over to the next month. I’m going to upgrade to prevent a repeat performance.
Tonight I finally finished my Early Bird Christmas Journal cover. Hopefully I will be able to use this for the next few years.
The only gift I have made so far is this little key ring from Judith’s pattern. It has been finished for few days now, I’m just slow at sharing it.
Today I spent the day with a friend helping her to make a “Bow Bag”, designed by Monica Poole, for her mother. My friend is not a sewer (although she does beautiful cross stitch and knitting), and really enjoyed her day. The end product should delight her Mum for her birthday in July.
Just as a little extra, I used some scraps to make a tissue pack cover. I just fiddled to make a pattern. Very simple. I still need to add a closure. This is the same range of fabric I am using to make my quilt. I promise to finish the top very soon. I think I’ll be making some tissue covers as well from my scraps.
So now I’ll be absent from blogland for a week or so. I’ll have lots of catching up to do then.
