WHAT - More Fabric ???

Well who can resist when having a 30% off voucher, buying just a bit more?

I have decided to use this to make the Joypatch Doctors bag soon - a class at Sew This and That.  It just seems a little unfair - there is so much beautiful fabric in that store that the decision of what to use is very hard.  I think I could make dozens of doctor bags just from my "favourites".

My (cheat) sashiko panel for my sewing machine cover is progressing slowly.
The small detail still needs to be stitched, and then I need to put in the sides of the cover and bind it. The blue stitching lines will then wash out .This is the project for this month's sewing club.

We have made another trip to the Antique Centre, where my daughter bought some more pieces of furniture.  I made just a small purchase.  While looking through the stack of embroidered d'oyleys, I found this little crocheted one.  It is 6 inches square.  It had to come home with me.

Not much sewing is being done here at the moment.  There is an even better way to spend my time.
Spending time with Grandchildren is always precious, and even more so when they dont live locally.
I am so enjoying having Harry stay locally for a few weeks.  Here he is taking in the city views from the mosiac arm chair lookout at Paddington, just up from the Antique Centre.

Pretty fabric, I love that dr's bag from Joy! Your sashiko is looking lovely. But absolutely the cutest thing on this post is your adorable Harry!!! My favorite cousin's name was Harry.
