FIS Hatched & Patched Swap Part 2

This is what I made for Jo - a mug bag using Bliss fabric - very bright and cheery.

I mentioned in my last post that my job for this week was to clean up and organise my sewing room (which also doubles as an office). Well I had all good intentions to start today but during a phone call to organise for my DS to catch up with his mate, my friend Raelee asked me if I would like to go to the Aberdeen Quilt Show with her and, of course, how could I say no. The Quilt Show was quite small but had a good range of impressive quilts on display and some stalls of local quilt and bookshops. As it was spare of the moment I forgot to take my camera (nothing new) so I don't have any photos to share. We had a lovely morning tea while we were there and it was good to have some grown up girlie time for a change.

Anyway back to the sewing room - well as you can guess nothing got done today but I did manage to take some before photos

I also need to clean out the cupboard which is full of scrapbooking supplies that I don't use. I have found it very hard to try and keep up with two crafts so quilting has won and the scrapbooking is going to make room for more fabric (as if I need it).

Well I had better get motivated.

We have just returned from a wonderful weeks holiday at Yamba on the north coast of NSW.

We enjoyed glorious sunsets .....

Fantastic fishing ......

and fun in the sun .....

The weather was amazing - sun every day. We have now returned home to cold weather and rain .... time to break out the trackies and slippers.

My job for the second week of the school holidays is to clean up and organise my sewing room (and do some stitching of course). I will be back soon with an update.
