I'm Off...

 on holidays that is...๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‹ ๐Ÿš—⛺✈   woohoo...

But before I packed the caravan and our suitcase, I managed to complete the last few QAYG strip blocks. This will be last charity quilt of this type for awhile. 
Of course I still have to join all the blocks together once I return home.

I've had a small project in mind for some time so wanted to get it finished before I left. It's a small hanging scissor keep to go on the Exhibition SaLe table.
It's a very easy pattern by Vickie Purnell that's been around since 2008.

There is a free pattern on YouTube called DIY Compact Folding Bag.
To trial making it, I used "ugly" fabric & although I didn't have any of the correct elastic... it turned out pretty well. It's a handy bag (which opens up to a good size) to throw inside your handbag for any "Just-in-case" times.

AND...
I prepared a few on the go projects to take away with me. 
I like to sit & do something with my hands so these will keep me busy. 
I also have a few books ๐Ÿ“š to read... & some wool ๐Ÿงถ to knit.
This holiday is just what the doctor ordered... ReST & ReLaXaTion for HuBBy...

<><><> AND <><><>

I'll still be hosting Friday Night with Friends on August 5th...
so be sure to link up on Wednesday 3rd.
See you all then...

It FeLT gOOd

 ... being in my cubbyhole for FNwF...
I made a "larger" fully lined first aid pouch for DD#2.
I originally made smaller ones that fit perfectly in the glovebox of a car... 
but DD wanted something larger.
Anyway... once she sees it I'll probably need to make another ... ๐Ÿ˜‰

How did you all go last night...?
I'll be over to your blog over the weekend to see what you got up to...

NoT a LoT

is happening in my cubbyhole at the moment...๐Ÿ˜“
The days go by  w a y  too fast filled with doing other stuff.
HoWEVeR... 
I did manage to finish sewing the columns & rows together for our charity quilt. You may remember me organising a day for the guild... well, 
the members sewed 22 out of 24 blocks... a great effort... so after making the remaining 2 blocks I set about finishing it.
A colourful, scrappy & qayg strip quilt made completely from donations...๐Ÿ‘

I was determined to make the remaining "Santa Sack" for DD#2 this month.
It's for "daddy"... so colours of BLuE were chosen.
Luckily when my hubby was away I found a little time to sew... yeah ....๐Ÿ˜
It's also my project for 1 Xmas Item A Month...(1xiam).. as well...
Oppss... I just noticed I forgot to add Santa's mouth...๐Ÿ˜ณ

AnD... as it's the END of yet another month... it's OPAM time...
I have 8 items this month... wow that's more than I realised...
Thanks Kris (Tag ALong Teddies) for adding up the monthly numbers...
