NOT ENTIRELY LAZY

This is a bag approx 5 1/4 ins, by 6 ins,. I have always loved spending time doing and collecting silky fabric for crazy patchwork . Recently bluebell introduced me to a magazine purely showing embellished crazy patchwork . It's an amazing magazine . I'm hooked . These little bags will contain presents for christmas time . The editor of the mag,. is Pat Winter who has a blog devoted to the craft . Check out her blog if only for the eye candy . I have about 3 more in the making .Such a break from hauling large quilts .



I have not had much to show lately as regards patchwork but I have been doing other things .
I showed pedal pushers or Capri pants whichever you might call them . I made several pairs for the young children in the family . this week I have been making sun dresses and finishing off a knitted cardi with a hood and also a skirt . Sorry you are seeing the same pic,. twice. My picasa is now a different format , I dare not delete in case the lot goes . I'll get it sorted eventually. I have made errors before clicking twice when I thought nothing was happening.
I have also made 2 little girls sundresses . I bought the pattern at Bramble patch . I hope Ellie has room in her wardrobe for her growing summer attire .
I have been blog hopping to see what others are doing over the Easter holiday . American girls are so lucky to have garage or yard sales . They seem to find amazing treasures . I know here we have car boot sales but I will say openly and honestly they are a lot of old TAT .
I have been on the look out for a book by Margaret Miller , Strips and Curves . It must be out of print . It will turn up somewhere eventually.
Just leaves me to say Happy Easter to all .

I'm so glad you discovered Crazy Quilt Gatherings magazine. Your little purse is wonderful! The children's clothing is so cute. Those are lucky little ones.
Smiles,
Pat

Well, I can see you have a good eye for placement,balance, piecing and seams. You add trims yet save seams for embroidery! Perfect!
