My Next Project

My bag is finished!!!

It has turned out great. All I have to do to it now is hand quilt it and it is officially finished!!!

I ended up using 2.5' squares. 49 for the back and 33 for the front. The stitchery is worked on a 8.5' square. The handles are 3' x 18', they were sewn folded in half right sides facing then turned inside out. Too easy. if anyone wants the full pattern just post a comment and I'll email it to you!!

My hubby and I also got my garden shed finished on Sunday. I'm so happy with it.... I bought it from our local hardware store about 2 months ago for $509 (what a bargin). It came in kit form, in a 2.0m x 0.5m, ready to assemble. The finished shed size is 3m x 2.8m and it's 2m high at its highest point. It has been my yard buy of the year.
Seen as though it is getting pretty cold in my neck of the woods I have decided that my next project will be a flapper hat (beanie) for my little 9mth old girl. I found the pattern on Sarah With an H's site http://sarawithanh.typepad.com/sarawithanh, I love this site. Here is the link to the pattern http://sarawithanh.typepad.com/flapperhat_final.pdf. It's worth a look!!!
