Few things I have been doing

Last weekend DD wanted to make a pencil case, using, but of course her Mum's fabrics and here is the result.
She needed help with the zip, but the rest was her idea as to which fabrics and how she wanted them to appear.

I finally put the finishing touches to my Hex Purse that appeared here, but changed the stitchiery which I found in Stitch with Love by Mandy Shaw. And the other sewing bag with various pockets inside is a pattern by The Birdhouse.

The Hex purse involved over 80 paper hexagons, anyone that has classes with me knows that I love hand sewing.
I am hoping to this week to sandwich this quilt and get it finished in time for Christmas. It's red, so will go nicely over the sofa.
I haven't this year made anything new in the way of Christmas projects, just haven't had the time. The Nativity scene will have to wait yet another year. Let's see if in 2013 we will finally get it finished. DD in term time really doesn't have much free time, so maybe in the long summer holidays we could finally get down to finish it. Let's wait and see!!
