2 down 1 to go

I spent yesterday catching up on my 365 challenge. I did manage to finish my bag from my Loxton weekend. Gail was our teacher on the first day she is such a lovely lady, it is a great pattern and easy to follow . I am really pleased with it.
A close up of the stitchery.
I have now finished 5 full rows of my quilt and am 1/2 way through the 6th.
I need to sit down and add some more stitcheries.
This is a quick post as sadly the house work is calling.

Hi Leanne, You have been very good my bag is still in a couple of pieces but I did a bit last night so I am nearly at the sewing up stage. My basket lid is finished but not attached to the basket.
In one of the local shops the other day I saw someone (Julie according to pictures here) who looked familiar but I couldn't place her now I know, damn should have said hello.

Gah! Housework. I think if you are a quilter, it should be mandatory the world provide you with a maid!
Love your bag!

Hi Leanne, I was going through your blog and saw your little message bird and I saw your bird in Hettie's Patch the other day in pride of place on one of the shelves and I thought what a lovely gift.
