What's in the bags?

One of the Christmas presents I received from Diann:

Proof that it's not my fault I shop so much.

My shopping from Anni's Shop - Hatched and Patched
Three Country Keepsakes doll patterns and three Hatched and Patched patterns plus a H&P kit and Anni's new book "Some Kind of Wonderful". I also bought some threads, a Theodora Cleave button and some purse snap frames.

A punchneedle set for my friend's birthday present, pin cushion kit, wool felt, Fig Tree fabric on great sale and some fat quarters of Anni's fabric range.
Pretty good haul in the short time I had there while John was checking out a nearby motorbike shop.

I also bought a 10" punchneedle frame. Didn't realise they came in this size - much better for the piece I'm making at present.

Rosalie Quinlan design.
I did some stitching while we were travelling.  More Rosalie Quinlan.

"The Two of Us" a small bag design.
The finished, unironed design.
On our way back down the North Coast we stopped at a fabric shop in Macksville and I bought the striped fabric to make up the Rosalie Quinlan bag, the spotty fabric to make a basket liner and seat cover for my bicycle and the floral stripe just because I liked it.

I also finished off this block for my Gingham Girls "My Favourite Things" quilt - there are pearls and buttons to be added once it's quilted.

When we arrived home a parcel was waiting for me from Jenni - she had bought this for me for Christmas but it didn't arrive in time.  What a lovely surprise!

Will look fantastc in my sewing room.

It's so wonderful to see that you are ensuring that the retailers don't go bankrupt, Lynda :) Looks like you've made some great purchases!

Looks like you have a wonderful time away. I would like to visit Annie's shop one day. Do you find the punchneedle hard to do. I have bought the punch and hoop years ago but have never tried it .
