Just Sew "Bag Swap.".

Things are a little quiet about here on the blog front, I do not know where the time goes too.
If the weather is good Mr M and I can be found  in the garden  as large portion of fence has blown down and has had to be replaced. So many trips to the dump with all the vegetation that came down with it.

When the weather is not so nice, a little sewing has been done. I joined an on- line group called
Just Sew and joined in their Bag Swap.

It was really strange sewing something for someone you do not know. All I was given was the name and address of the person I had to send my bag to.
The bag had to be made using just two fabrics so this is what I made, for a lady called Janet who lives in Gretna.

As you know, I knit lots of socks and I find this bag very handy for carring my knitting about.

Rough idea of how it was made

Janet put up on Facebooks  Just Sew site that she loved it, so I am well pleased.

Now, I am waiting to receive my bag from whom I do not know..Ha Ha !..

The Frolic sewing group to which I belong have now finished the quilt, "The Battle of Sole Bay".. and it is going to the NEC in Birmingham in the group quilt category.
So keep your fingers crossed for us..

 Their were just 6 of us this time, and it was fun to make though a bit daunting at first..

Desperately trying to make some summer tops, before the summer is over, but I think I have made this one a little short for me.. So it will be my usual trick to lengthen it so watch this space.:0)

So I am leaving you with a couple of views from my back door..

Keep safe and keep stitching........................Doti...
