I saw the pattern for these intriguing peg bags over on Nicola’s blog, she is so inspiring and very generous with her knowledge of all things sewing…
I made myself a pegbag a while back and as I was sewing I came up with more ideas for this design. I contacted the seller and was given permission to sell my creations from this Norwegian design
So, I added zips as well as leaving them as they were designed. Both are perfect for storing spindles and fibre, or for small knitting/crocheting projects…I just love making them and was amazed at how quickly these first four were sold!
I’ve also been applying my strip patchwork and machine quilting to the covers of my new and very cute Mini Needle Tip organisers, perfect for popping into your project bags to keep all the tools needed to complete your project!
I took part in a swap and was totally spoilt, that wonderful fibre is hard to come by, I am so delighted with it. Very soft and pretty… it’s Zauberwiese, superwash merino with nylon in the Natur-Wunder colourway
My lovely friend in Australia kindly sent me the kit to make Mrs Beasley’s Sampler Quilt, it is so pretty. The first part of the pattern is in Vignette magazine, issue 10, the next issue is due out any time soon so I better get cracking if I’m going to keep up with the quarterly episodes! I do love the internet for keeping me sane…I am so lucky to have made such wonderful like-minded friends
The last photo is this lovely quilting book, I started to read it last night and am impressed so far. You make and quilt the blocks before joining them together. my kind of quilting!! I squealed when I saw the close up on the cover, the designer uses the pretty quilt stitches on her machine which is just what I’ve been enjoying lately in my work! I know I am going to love making up a quilt or two from this book….I just need to order a load more of the pretty variegated quilting thread
Time for me to get sewing….I forgot to put the bin out last night…missing you Barry ❤
