What I've Been Doing & a 1st Finish For March


Here is my 1st finish for March. I was trying to decide what to make my SIL for her birthday when i decided to make this bag from the angel swap last year. My redwork embroidery from the basket bom(see sidebar). Just love redwork.

The next stitchery in Gail Pans lovely Christmas Wish bom (see sidebar). I really enjoy making this & can't wait to see the finshed hanging .


And lastly the applique version of the basket bom. I didn't get this started straight away for some reason. When i decided to get going my spare room where my fabrics are was occupied. Until lunchtime mind you. Finally could choose the fabrics & half way through realised i had chosen yellow fabrics when Shamrocks should be green. Was going to leave it but the next day got up & decided "green". But guess what the room was occupied again by the same late sleeper. After i prepared the green leaves i sat down to sew. Well i was beginning to think i shouldn't be making this block as the rabbit was facing the wrong way. After a moment of puzzlement realised i had forgotten to reverse the pattern when tracing the template. All done now thankfully.
