This week I've got some sewing done including this little bag.
Last Sunday J & I went to the Nantwich fabric sale which is held every year just for one day. This is the 4th year I've been. I have to say it was rather disappointing but the fact it had snowed quite heavily may have influenced some stall holders not to come, there were not as many stall holders as usual and the fabric choice wasn't as good as usual.
I did buy some fabric including the fabric used for this little bag, it was a FQ bundle from Castle Court Quilters in Shropshire. I love this company, we've been to their shop once which is huge and they also go to the Uttoxter show which is held in April.
I also got some fabric for borders for my big hexi quilt.
I had fun making this bag. I decided I wanted a little bag to use for my sock knitting so I designed this one, it's turned out quite well.
This fabric range is Moda Figgy Pudding from a few years ago. I have been hoarding it in my stash waiting for the right project to come along. I found the right project here. Here the fabric is cut out ready to start. I started the quilt yesterday. There has been more unsewing than sewing as I kept getting the HSTs the wrong way round. I've not been in the mood for it today so I've left well alone.
A sock in process to go in my new bag!
And this is fabric I bought to support my LQS on Thursday which was 'International Support your Local Quilt Shop' day. I think I did a good job of supporting mine!!!
