a bit of this and a bit of that

This week I've finished off a couple of things I hadn't posted about before.

I made a bag for my clarinet playing nephew, to carry around his instrument and all the associated bits and pieces. I was instructed to use up some left over green fabric from some placemats I had made for mum last year, but I couldn't bear to make such a plain bag so I ducked out and bought the only musically themed fabric I could find (trumpets), just to jazz it up abit!

I also made the swap item I will be taking to this month's Sunday session at the craftroom. Here is a sneak peek.

I've been thinking alot about this upcoming event. I don't think I have had five straight hours alone to sew, crochet or whatever since I had my first baby.

To say I am excited is a major understatement!

So, what to do with the time? I pretty much think I've decided to finally get on with making the quilts I've been dreaming of for my girls. I went to Spotlight and got a few more pieces of fabric for them today.

I hope to cut all the fabric beforehand so that on the day I can just sew, sew, sew.

I am hoping to be the lucky recipient of a very lovely owl made by Rachel, who is also a craftroom girl. The giveaway is still open for afew more days so pop over to The Two Windmills for your chance to win.
