I had a lovely package from Naomi in Australia today from the Black and White bag swop on Cheryll's Stitchincubbyhole.blogspot.com. It is a large bag with lots of internal dividers and pockets which will make a great sewing tote. .... And a mug bag and scented sachets. The mug bag is not something I have seen before but which I now want to find a pattern for as it will make a good Xmas gift to make for quilting friends to take their mugs to group get-togethers.
I am still having problems with my shoulders and I'm waiting for the results of some tests - so still limited to some hand sewing or machine embroidery. I have made a knitting bag for a friend who admired the one I received recently in a swop and also started a Joseph's Coat quilt as it is ideal for doing by hand.
I' m looking forward to the trip to London to the Knitting and Stitching show on Friday- just need to make sure I don'T buy too much to carry back to the hotel!!!
I have spent a lot of time reading blogs and that of course means lots of ideas!!!
