Sewing up a stitch or two

I spend a delightful day this week sewing with lovely friends, one of whom is having a big “0” birthday this weekend, so I took along my present. We have such good taste, Miss H and I – Miss H had made herself a smaller bag from the same fabric!! How funny is that? (I forgot to get a pic of the bowl I bought her too)

The girls had been sewing some little purses too, a freebie kit from a Cath Kidston book.

    Love your projects! Have you had good luck with the frixion pens? I’ve been too timid to try them.

    Meredithe the birdie fabric is so cute. Can you give me any clues of the name of the fabric or where I might be able to buy it from? Thank you
