To day there where a big swarm of birds stoped in my garden on their way back from warmer area. If they hoped to find some food , I belive they was disappointed, there are not summer yet. No green grass and no flowers, just cold and snow and rain...
The only flowers I got are these in doors. - There are a few small spring flowers in my garden but I belive they are realy cold....
Here you can see how it looks outside when the snowshower goes by.Not a great time to be travelling bird .....
My friend Lisbeth has been travelling.... to the sun on a cruise. And she had thimles with her back as a gift for me ;-) One from Jamaica and one from Coamel. Thank you Lisbeth , great gifts from a great friend.
This last weeks I have been playing with my sewing machine. I have done a lot , but can't show you every thing yet.( I have been doing some gifts..... I will show you them next time .. )
I have been making me some new bags, but I did not have time to do all the bags I had on my mind. This is the kit of the third bag from the Bagaliciocs club. A sweet little bag made by Janelle Wind. This will be my new bag for sunny days, - if there will be summer sometimes ;-) Great pattern and beautifull fabrics. So diffrent from the bags I use to make .
I have been playing and tryed some ideas I have had on my mind for a while.... The first are this little purse. I found it in a Japanece book. Easy and fast to make - great for coins when I don't bring a bag.
The second bag are a BIG one .... a weekend bag. All made of fabrics from my stash...Old Thimbelberry fabrics, left-over from differnt TB clubs. The crazy quilt fabrics are great - but now it is gone... The pattern are Norwegian - a Peggy pattern . She have a lot of great pattern for bags.
This is a Peggy pattern too. A great little bag fun to make and a little diffrent. The fabrics on the front remember me of the "happy"-70 and The Beatles. You will find a lot of Peggys pattern here at Quilteliv. This was the shop who was at Elverum quiltelag on our last meeting.
So now I got me some new bags on my next trip to vistit Emma and Peder... ;-)
A girl can newer get to many bags--- I belive ;-)
Have a great week , I will soon be back to show more of my sewing machine- playing.
Have fun and tacke care. ;-)
