Fun in my fabric world....

Great weather for playing with fabric!

It has been such a bitterly cold weekend...icy winds...and hard to find a warm spot really!
Back into an assignment, but I decided to have some reward time too...fabric time!
Playing with these sweet blocks for Le Petite...
made this mess!
Hoping to visit a loved one who has been travelling for such a long time...it might mean I need a little bag to hold some stitching when I am flying.
Inspired by Anni's bag in her new book "Some Kind of Wonderful", I didn't have time to add the stitcheries, just let some scraps do all the work. Still need to construct it and then get some plane friendly stitching organised. Hopefully the trip will come off...it would be nice to have a break...and even nicer to catch up with family if possible...will have to keep my fingers crossed!
