I won! Again!

I opened my e-mail this morning and saw a e-mail saying Peg Coen in the from column and subject saying winner....I was a bit sceptical since I receive so many junk e-mails stating I won some or other lottery and it could be a virus, but I checked anyway and it was Peg from www.happyinquilting.blogspot.com saying I won a draw and a little something is coming my way! yippee! Thanks Peg!!

On the sewing front I were quite busy over the weekend as my husband is away still. I managed to make this A4 size journal cover. I made 2 applique blocks from a Sun Bonnet Sue quilt donkeys years ago and lost enthusiasm. I cut it smaller and appliqued it on the pieced background. I had a journal cover I was gifted a year ago so I just copied how to make it from there. I need a journal to write down promises I make to customers and then I can't remember who I promised what!

This is a crazy patch handbag I started in 2005!! Now all I need to do is to blanket stitch around all the pinned edges and attach the handles. I have lovely bamboo handles I bought in China some years ago that I intend using. That I can list under my OPAM2012. I'm really enjoying getting small things done which seems like a huge accomplishment to me!
