Weekend sewing and halloween

 I have had a lovely time in my sewing room, making pouches and working on my christmas gifts. Yesterday I made the pouch pictured above, it was a fiddly but a  fun little project to work on. Its a pattern by Thimbleblossoms.
 I decided to try and make the same pouch but this time bigger and so far its working out great. I adore the fabric range Scrumptious. its so fresh and modern. it works well with some linen.
 If you look close you can see I did a bit of fancy machine stitching, just for something a little different.
 As Halloween is approaching I have been thinking about making a quilt. I bought these fabrics when I was in America last month, now I just need to decide what to make.
 I have a few cute Halloween goodies, I like things that are different.
I also made a Halloween bunting during the week.

Next weekend I am going on my annual quilting retreat to Hagely farm, I can't wait. 3 days of non stop sewing , laughter and lots of fun.

Have a great day.

Love the zippered pouches and so true scrumptious is just gorgeous and looks fantastic teamed with the linen. I can't wait to see which quilt you decide to make your Halloween fabrics into, it sounds like you've had a very productive weekend so far :) Barb.

Scrumptious is the perfect name for that pouch, it's gorgeous. I fear I may soon buy a big bunch of that fabric range. Not long now, getting butterflies! xxx
