Bags more potential!
These bags, passed on via the mother of a friend, are from some one else who is downsizing.
Oh the excitement! One is never quite sure what the bags will hold. What colours? What textures? What will the fabric be made of?
I'm not sure that much of these bags will be quilting fabric - it looks to me as though the lady passing this on was a garment maker. This is rather nicely timed with the start of 'The Great British Sewing Bee' on television, and my younger daughter wondering out loud if she should make another skirt.
I think that I need to look out (or even buy!) some patterns and get busy sewing with her.
There might also be something suitable for school production costumes too. We're going to be busy!
365 challenge. I've accepted that I'm woefully (albeit cheerfully!) behind - but proud that I've almost finished the April blocks!
These are 6 1/2" square, but some of them seem to be four times the work of the 3 1/2" square blocks that we've working on up until now - so taking a bit longer to complete than they used to!
All good fun - and I'm enjoying the brighter, lighter colours too.
