WOYWW #292- Happy New Year

 Happy New Year to all from a stranger, it has been ages since I blogged or did any craft etc, So to join in  get yourself over to Julia's @ the Stamping Ground.   Over Xmas did finally do something.  This is my desk as of 12.30pm this afternoon.
Remnants of Christmas stamps I used on my cards .   A few card tops in progress  for my stash and sale.  Plus a quilter shopping bag I made with the Tim Holtz fabric I got about 18mths ago.
Decided to stop stroking it and use it,   Practised my free machine quilting and learnt that
American Fat Quarter are not the same as UK FQ's.  They are smaller!
 Here's a close up of the front which I have embellished.
And this is the rear, love the butterfly as I do with the paper.  Wishing you all a good week  TTFN


  1. That bag looks so lovely! I like the little metal charms you put on it and look it looks like a good size as well! Happy WOYWW! zsuzsa @ InkyDinkyDoode #27

  7. Hi Francesca, nice to meet you!
    Your bag looks gorgeous. I love it! Can you just leave it there a bit longer so I can stroke it too?
    Have a great week,

  8. Brilliant bag ! Yes UK FQ's are quarter of a metre & the USA ones a quarter of a yard - hence smaller !! happy new year to you Ali #21

  9. It's marvelous to hear from you again! I LOVE your quilter's bag with the fabulous TH fabric scrappy look. Have a blessed 2015, my friend!
