Feeling better

Feeling much better now but it did take a good week to come right. Have been doing some sewing in the mean time. Made a bag for my little sister Natalie using the Nicole M Designs pattern I got posted to my Aunt's house when I was on holiday in Australia. It is such an easy pattern to follow the only thing was it didn't remind you to put the magnetic catch in the flap before you sewed it on to the bag so Natalie's bag doesn't have a catch. It would have been too much effort to undo everything to add it in as I only remembered about the catch after sewing the lining shut. I just have to add velcro to the strap so that she can adjust it to the right size for herself. The bag holds it shape well but I only used the light interfacing and I think next time I will use the heavy and also make the bag a bit wider and deeper. I love what Thornberry did with the pattern for her daughter Stella. Also washed and ironed my expanded quilting stash, forgot about my bowl of icecream while I was busy ironing, which is very sad. I have ordered fabric from America with some birthday money that I had and have a wish list from QuiltersBiz that I want to order when the Kiwi dollar is a bit stronger against the American, just have to be very patient. Can't wait for it to arrive as I am planning on making a quilt for my niece with the Smores range and one for my nephew with the Alien Invasion range
