I'm back

Got my own laptop back. Ahhh! Good to be in touch again properly. D2 let me use hers, but I am soooo much happier that this baby is mended and back on line again. GD and I enjoyed the ballet immensely. There were so many little girls there, even some under 5s. You could have heard a pin drop, especially as the ballet progressed. I did wonder if all the littlies had gone to sleep. I also had an outing to the cinema with some friends. I missed my watch as we sat down, and as it was a gift from DH at Christmas, I was upset. However, one of my friends went above the call of duty, and crawled on the cinema floor til she found it. I was sooooo relieved. I decided to make her something by way of a thank you.

She keeps bees, so I used some of this fabric with beehives on it.I added some batiks that I bought at the quilt fair at Cavan County museum end of last summer.

Partly finished, I found it fitted neatly over my machine. It could make a good cover. mmmmh!

However, I continued and completed my version of 'Rachel's Bag' a pattern from The Fennel Shed, Buncrana, Co Donegal.
My friend loved it and plans to use it to keep her cross stitch projects in (she's on three different kits. Sounds familiar doesnt it).


  1. Yes, I thought you've made a machine cover! But I like the bag even better. It's quite roomy and it will be very handy for your friends multiple projects. Cheers Vreni x
