4 Pants Bags, 1 Tote Bag and Ric Rac on a UFO :)

As I posted last night, if you had asked me a week ago what I was going to make over the coming week, I would not have said 5 bags and 2 quilts!


After starting the Irish-themed quilt, I was 'chatting' with Pauline of The Little House on the Hill about my UFO. I had 'got stuck' with this quilt and now I'm unstuck! Thanks to Pauline who gave me the little push I needed, I have now finished piecing the top of this UFO, am ready to baste and it should be finished within the next week ... YAY :)


STUCK:


UNSTUCK:


I think it's amazing what a difference the ric rac makes to the letter 'R' ... and the yellow border finishes it off perfectly (well, I think it does!) Thank you, Pauline :)

And just a few photos of my Pants Bags - one for Florie (PBF's little girl was 1 last week - and you're never too young for your first Pants Bag!):


Three that I was 'commissioned' to make:




and a Tote Bag for my friend's sister (apologies for the rubbish photo taken quickly on my iPhone cos I couldn't find my camera):


A great week's sewing ... I am a happy quilter :) :) :)
