Photos at last!

Hello to all, I have finally been able to put photos onto my blog. Yahoo!

My season bags design by the lovely and very talented Micheele Ridway. I just love the colours that Michelle chose in these very sweet season designs. I had thought of making a quilt but decided to make a bag for every season. I adore country colours and I always have a lot of nice comments made about my bags,so far I have used the Spring one and now I am using the summer one. Next one will be Christmas! I think maybe I am a old?bag lady ha ha.xxxx


My gingie placemat ,this design by Michelle Ridway was a joy to stitch. The teddlywinks design is called Sew Busy Bears ,loved the applique in this lovely quilt. This quilt I stitched for my friends 60th birthday. It was Sew Easy!



Bags that I have made




Here is my new overlocker, the book behind it is one that I won in a competition in Patchwork and Stitching. This overlocker works really well, only cost me $40.
This is The Christmas Story design that was in Patchwork and Stitching by Jennifer Reynolds ,very quick and easy one to stitch.
