The Two of Us

I spent yesterday in the sewing room - first time I've spent practically a whole day in there since I finished work.

The stitchery I did while on our road trip is for this bag. It's called "The Two of Us" and is a Rosalie Quinlan pattern.




I love the bright striped fabric - really goes well with the thread colours. The bag is for a girlfriend for her birthday in 3 weeks.

Last October when the girls were over for a stitching day, I started making these blocks from "Bliss" fabric. The quilt design is "Hot Cross" from Carrie Nelson's Book "Schnibbles Times Two". The quilt is an engagement present for Michael and Peta. I love the colours and the lattice design.

I put a 10" wide floral border on the quilt top so that it sits well on a queen size bed.

Need to buy a roll of batting so that I can get stuck into quilting the ever-growing stack of quilt tops as well as the other quilts I plan to make over the next few months.
