It Must be Monday

Life threw me another curve ball this week.  My Mum is in hospital with cellulites in both legs and a rash all over her body which they believe is an allergic reaction to a pain patch she was on.  Her legs are so sore and of course the infection has increased her dementia. 

I did take my bag class on Friday anyway, and came home with this:

Grommet Purse 001

I didn’t put a whole lot of thought into the fabric I used as I just threw it together late on Thursday night.  I’m really pleased with it though.  It’s fully lined and stands up beautifully on it’s own.

Now I’m working on a quilt called Birthday Presents by Atkinson Designs.  I’m really liking how this is going together.

Birthday Presents 003

Pictures are wonderful – I now see that I need to change the first block on the second row – there isn’t enough contrast in the two fabrics.  This isn’t the final layout – I have 42 blocks to make so they are just going on my design wall as I finish them.

A certain little someone had her first birthday on Saturday.  Happy Birthday Molly!

Oh your poor Mom hope she is on the mend and up to her old self soon. Love your bag, colours are wonderful and your quilt is terrific. Haven't seen you around for a while.

And of course Happy Birthday beautiful Molly!

Sorry to hear about your Mum. Getting old sucks.

But that bag is way cute! I have to make "something" this summer for a charity raffle and I am thinking a bag will be much better than a quilt, which is not as practical as a bag...these are tough times. Do you know where I can find the instructions?

I have a bag like that in the works. I haven't touched it in a while. It would be nice to finish it.

I hope by now your Mum is doing much better.
