Jelly Roll Bag

Photo 2018-07-11, 3 36 35 PMI was inspired by this Jelly Roll Rug…and well you know I have a thing for Bags…So I thought of creating my own bag with the same method.

So a customer at work had her quilt quilted and did not need the extra fabric that we usually have to cut off to straighten the quilt. She gave all that to me. It already had some of the batting sewn on to the strips that I cut into 2,5″ strips. Yes I know it has some of the sewing from quilting on the strips ….That doesn’t bother me at all.  I find it adds the uniqueness to this bag.

I had some fabric that was perfect in colour to make my sided and leather handles that oh yes are just perfect for this bag too.  Love the green and brown together…

Hope to have this pattern soon available for You too to make your fun bag too and see where it will go….

Adorable Chipmunks

IMG_0517Sitting in my backyard watching all the chipmunks racing around…

Yes they dug up one of my planter….gurrr….

but then they also eat all the seedlings “Airplanes” as I call them falling from the Maple Trees.

So they kind of help me too.

Spring Into Spring Cardi

IMG_1704
I had knit this before on a trip back home to Switzerland and then gifted it to one of my best friends Marianne.
Thought it was time for me to have one too….Or perhaps it to will be a gift. Or if anyone loves it I would be willing to sell it too….Smiles I have enough yarn, I could make another one….
This is a very lose fitting cardi on me so would fit someone with medium to large size too.
Really starting to use up my stashed yarn. So thought this FibraNatura Good Earth Solids
would be perfect for this pattern  original  is found 19 Jacke by Lang Yarns
