Friday Night Sew In Results

Last night was Friday Night Sew In and I managed to get 'Tweet' finished.  Tweet is part of the 'Hooty & Tweet' pattern by Melly & Me.  I have made this one a few times now and I think they are very sweet.
So here is 'Tweet'.
Drop over and see what everyone else did for Friday Night Sew In.  Thanks to Heidi & Bobbi for hosting these Friday Night Sew In's - they are great fun. Happy Sewing!

First day of school & the Fiesta bag

Well - the kids have been back at school for a week now and are starting to settle into the routine.  My son started prep this year and has been so excited about being a big school boy.  It has been a big change for him and his sister as now she has her little brother at school too.
Here they both are ready for their first day at school.
I have also been very busy sewing and getting ready for our local Makers Market next month.  So I have heaps of things in various stages of completion!  I will show you once I have them finished.    I am also going to Melbourne for a day next week and needed a new handbag in certain colours to take, so I made the 'Fiesta' bag up over the last couple of days. 

It is a Melly & Me design from her Kaleidoscope book.  It is a great design and has a nice big zip along the top so nothing can fall out.  It is also very roomy so can fit quite a lot in it too.  I love being able to make up a bag in the exact colours and style that I like.  I love the fact that it makes it unique and my kind of bag.  I can see this bag will quickly become a favourite of mine and it is already holding everything I need in it!   
Happy sewing!
