I also found time to baste one of my quilts so now I can start hand quilting... I'm going to start now while my little one is asleep.

I was busy on the weekend making a bag for a friend's daughter who is having her 4th birthday party this weekend. It's made of canvas with a flower & her initial appliqued on with a piece of felt & a button for the centre of the flower. I'm going to buy a couple of books to go in it. I hope she likes it. I'm happy with it, the only thing I'd change is the bit at the bottom that makes the bottom of the bag, if you know what I mean - I cut a 2" square out of each corner, I think it only needed a 1" square cut out... oh well, live and learn! I went shopping again too...I am so naughty! I found some Denyse Schmidt Flea Market Fancy fabrics so went a bit crazy and bought all they had of 2 prints... and quite a bit of another. They're so lovely and you can't get them anymore, I just had to! I also just had to have some Liberty... I've seen so many lovely fabrics on Flickr that other people have and I just had to have some of my own!
