A hot Sunday

 Oh boy its HOT today, 32 degrees for Launceston and its horrible. I'm so lucky to have the air conditioner  so thats been on since 10.30 this morning. The house is nice and cool but my sewing room is at the back of the house so its taking awhile to cool down, but thats Ok, I'm still sewing and I have the fan going flat out. On Friday I was sitting at my sewing machine and the view of my back garden looked so pretty I had to take a photo to show you.
 I do get easily distracted at times, especially when the blue wrens come to play, I can watch them for ages, flitting around from one part of the garden to the next.
 The other day while going through my box of "stuff" I came across this quilt hanger. So out it came and its perfect for my mini spools quilt. I forgot I even had this hanger. Its amazing the goodies  you find when you are looking for other things.
 Quite some time ago I bought these plaster candle light houses in the christmas sales. Well last night I had them lit and they looked so sweet, the room is dark and just the glow of the houses make sit look so cosy. They will look lovely in the winter when the fire is going as well.
 I have finished my Bionic gear bag and I love it, its very similar to the Sew together bag thats all over Instagram right now, I have made 3 of those already. But this one is bigger and has 4 pockets inside. I did a patch work front and added some stitchery blocks. This is one  side.
 And the other.
 I added my little name tags to make it even more special.
Here is the inside, full of my hand work projects. I love this bag.

Well I hope you have had a wonderful weekend, stay cool  or warm wherever you are and I hope you find some sewing time.

What a lovely garden! I am starting to think about what to plant this spring - the first spring in this house, and it's in a part of the country where things grow so much better than in Texas. I love your bag - looks very useful and pretty at the same time.

You can come here and shovel some snow - that would cool you down. I just love your little bag, and you always use such pretty colors!!
