Some posts ago I said I was making a bag but that I wouldn't put up any photos yet because (a) it wasn't finished and (b) my son wasn't very complimentary about it. Well, I'm glad to say he has changed his mind now that I've put bindings on the edges and added the handles - it has a circular bottom so it is a bit like a bucket, though you can't see that so well in the picture. I quilted it using a decorative zig zag stitch and variegated thread. I really like plaids, this was made from charity shop shirts and I would like to make a whole quilt in them one of these days. I've just realised I should have turned the bag round to show the different fabrics on the other side - never mind, you'll' just have to trust me.
I'm taking a day's holiday from work today - the weather is good so why not? Hope to get some sewing done but I fear that I may have to tidy up a bit first and I've got some errands to run.
