Its been a busy day.

 When you work during the week do you try to fit in as much as you can on the weekends? I sure do, I try to sew as much as I can, catch up on the house work and do those jobs like wash the floors and dusting. Today I was washing the floors and I moved my quilt ladder to mop under it and I  realised how dusty my quilts were so I  decided to give them a wash.
 They looked so pretty in the back garden. Swishing around in the breeze.
 My scrappy trip along is a favourite, it has all my best fabrics in it.
 Yesterday I decided just out of the blue to make another zipper pouch, I am really liking these and as I just make it up as I go  you can do whatever you like. I added a little pieced block just because I liked it, it also adds a bit of interest.  This is one side.
 And this is the other, it turned out very pretty. I will use it to hold my stitching goodies.
Today I played with more zips, some of you may know about a bag thats been around on instagram and blogs called the Sew together bag, its an awesome little bag that opens up and you have 3 separate zip compartments inside. I bought the pattern and read the instructions but I had no idea how it all worked  then last week on Instagram this lovely lady decided to host a sew along and show us all how to make it so I joined in and todays job was to put the middle sections together with the zips. It took me a long time to get it right but its looking good. Can't wait for the next step now.


Its time to pack up my sewing and head to the kitchen to start dinner, home made pasties tonight. They smell so good.

Have a wonderful week and I hope you find some sewing time

Hi Leanne your quilts look great floating gentle on your washing line. I love the little pouch bags so far my favorite is the one with the printed bike and bird on it. x xx

How beautiful it looks like a mini quilt show in your back yard. That's washing you don't mind doing.

The quilts are so pretty hanging in the wind. I especially love the trip around the world - it is on my "to do" list. Pouches are also fun and I seem to find lots of uses for them as well as giving as gifts!

Your yard is in full bloom with pretty quilts.
Those little bags are the cats meow, now I must try a patchwork bag myself.

Your little pouch is adorable! I'm so glad you've found someone to help you with the other that you showed me. Have fun with it.

Quilts look beautiful blowing in the breeze. Love your Sew Together bag - haven't started mine yet as I'm waiting for some fabric to arrive (well, that's my excuse).

I agree with Ruth that Trip Around the World looks lovely on your line. It fits right in with your colorful garden. I enjoyed your flower photos as I too like to garden. Here in California we have had the mildest of winters and my flowers are several weeks ahead of their normal schedule. If you do not have a Casa Blanca lily in your garden then please do give it a try. Exquisite is the best description.
