I've been a busy bunny today, getting ready for going to the Festival of Quilts next week.
I've started to make a few lists - what to see, what to buy. Then I thought it would be nice to cover my notebook.
Next I thought I'd like to have a new bag. I only need to buy needles and a new thimble so I thought a small bag would do! Hmm, just in case I buy a little more I made the Natsu bag from Japan Crafts. "Natsu" means Summer and this enormous bag would hold everything necessary for a day by the sea so it should be big enough for my needles and thimble!! The bag is an easy pattern made of 40 charm squares and a metre of fabric. There's quite a lot of hand sewing and I used an extra strong thread, just to be on the safe side.
