Not a very productive month on the finishing side. Along with the One Xmas Item a Month from my last post I have finished this Ruler Bag...

The quilter panels I had in my stash for too many years so I cut them up and shared them with the 3 other ladies in my sewing group and challenged them to make a bag for quilting using them.
this is part 1 of my quilt ruler bags.

it also has a little pocket made from one of the panels on the back to store my rotary cutter!
The other finish is the Mug Bag below. My sister wanted a cup bag pattern that was easy to make. So I drafted up and made up this one.

I have since added a pocket either side to put teabags etc in (because I forgot to do it in step 3 or 4 of my pattern!! I am really very happy with it and it is just what my sister wanted.

I am happy with my 3 finishes for may and have also designed a new present (cup bag) so a couple more will be made.
I am currently at my son's near Wee Jasper for the weekend - it has poured rain at home and rained all day here. We have a 7am rise in the morning (should be banned on Sunday mornings) to go into Queanbeyan to watch  my 10yr old grandson play footy. Then I head on home late tomorrow afternoon and back to the grindstone on Monday.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!!


  1. Three great useful finishes.

  2. You're always so busy! Love the fabric in your cup bag

  3. Lovely finished projects, all so very
    handy. They are real sweet.
    Cheers, Anita.
