Another enjoyable week

Embroidery progress slowed down once the knitting project came along, but it didnt stop completely.

Lots of progress on my Snow Hearts blocks - all stitched out  except the last one, which became available last week.  These have been so relaxing to work on, and I love them.  I wonder how they will
be assembled.

I have done some more of the mini quilts for Give Thanks, the BOM from Jenny of Elefantz


Also last week was Sewing Club day at Sew This and That.  We were making a wine bottle carrier.  Now that was so convenient for me.  At Christmas when I gave my sisters these sleepover bags
one of them asked for a matching wine carrier for her birthday, which is this month.  Thanks to this month's club project I didnt need to go hunting for a design, or make one up. It was there for me.
Made to fit !

The knitting has not progressed too far.  I think there is some more reverse knitting waiting to be done.  It has been relegated to the "think about it later" category.  Sewing is much more satisfying.

Oh Marilyn! Those bags are amazing! I am always so impressed by people who can make bags, especially ones with zips, lol! The wine carrier matches nicely, and I love the snowflakes! Can't wait to see it all finished :)
