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).

I did scream inside my head, ddooooooooont dirty it. We dont shout at our cat, so I kept calm.
Maybe she will get down if I stay very still. However............
I think she approves of it. Her name is Amber, and we love her to bits, but have to gently remind her about showing respect for precious things.................like quilts. I lifted her down, and no harm done.
Now I could get down to doing something with the little house Beth sent out to all who took part in her quilty neighbourhood project. Really wanted something to remind me of the lovely women who have taught me so much since I started blogging, so.........I made a mug rug. It will sit beside my machine and I will be reminded of you all, whether I am having tea or not.
