A couple of finishes ,,,

This is Melly & Me's "Sleepover Bag" - cut out two last November for Christmas presents:  one for Peta and one for a friend.  I started the bag for Peta but in all of the Christmas rush didn't manage to finish it.  Took the bag out of the drawer last week to work on and finished it this morning.  I'll make a few changes when I start the next bag, ie attach the handles earlier than suggested in the pattern and add the plastic base as a much later step.  I found this bag very cumbersome to move around the sewing machine with the base already in place.  This is definitely an excellent overnight bag.


Another finish even though this quilt top is not entirely finished - my involvement with the quilt is finished (joining blocks, quilting, binding).  Jenni needs to applique two palm trees to the tent block and backstitch some of the block names.  This quilt is "Magic Beach" designed by Chook Shed Pattern Co.  I told the story behind the quilt here.

And here's a sneaky peak for a certain blogger out there - finished your swap present this afternoon.
