Happy Easter

Easter is a good time for catching up on some sewing, I have 4 days off and I plan to make the most of them. Yesterday I made this camera bag, the pattern can be found here on the moda bakeshop. I used a charm pack of Oasis, its such pretty fabric and a little bit of meterage for the lining and handle. My camera isn't that big so I thought I could use the bag for my quilting goodies or even a lunch bag.



Easter bunny likes the bag, he thought it could hold lots of easter eggs.





Today I'm going to work on my new table runner which is designed by Leanne Beasley, if you haven't guessed already you will know how much I love her projects.

I have put 6 rows together already, there is a little bit of stitchery on a few blocks so I will trace them then I can stitch on it at night while we watch tv.







Another thing I do every easter is plant my bulbs around the garden, I planted 4 packets early this morning so tomorrow I'll plant these ones. I love to watch these grow then enjoy the flowers in Spring time.

I hope you all have a wondeful easter and you find some sewing time.
