Slowly does it

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.

2010_0606June20100009 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.

A great idea, Janice. Christmas sneaks up rather quickly.
It is fun sewing with friends.
