A little bit of this.

Since Christmas I have had to make a number of little bags....

The Lined Drawstring Bag by Jenni Baker 

I don't have a separate play room for all the children's toys so I have had to improvise.  
Small toys aren't good for small hands and mouths so now we have a little bag for our Peppa Pig figures, a bag for the contents of a dolls house, and even a bag for the tea set.  

 Although it is great to keep them away from P they are also great to keep the one toy and all its bits together.

Thanks Jenny the pattern will be used over and over again.

Finish a Long 2016

Hello anyone out there that still might come and visit me...

As part of my new years resolutions, my blog is getting a bit of TLC and hopefully I'll get back to a few more than 1 post for the year.

Life is busy in my house with these two little rascals.

But over the past few months I have been able to drag my sewing machine out from under the stairs and got a quilt finished and a few other little bits and pieces done.

Which brings me back to my NYR's.... I have a number of quilts that need to be put to bed (so to say).
I really would be happy to even finish one off  for the year, but when I read Cindy's blog to say that the FAL was back for the year, I thought I better make more of an effort.

I seem to stall on my quilts when it comes to quilting them. So I have just one for the FAL to get off my list.

This is where I am at.....
My plan is to quilt but it will be quite dense
Wish me luck!
