I finished 2/3rds of the binding at the Friendship Day at Parkerville last Saturday, and completed the rest in the evening. The photos were taken at my friend Jenny’s (Jennywren) house. We had a sewing day together on Wednesday. We spent the day creating one of these each.

The pattern is McCall’s M6045, also known as The Sylvia Sling by Kay Whitt of Serendipity Studio.

I also received a lovely parcel in the post this week. My Beaufort Bag arrived from Thimbelina.

It is is use already, and DD has her eye on it too. Thank you ever so much!

My birthday has come and gone and still no Etsy shop! I am so sorry for the delay, it is taking longer to set up than I anticipated. I *should* have it up and running by my Mums birthday (29th July). Thank you for your patience :)

With Love

Hope the kids are feeling better..nothing worse than being sick on school holidays! Congratulations to Hope...would you believe I've had the pleasure of meeting Hope when I was in NSW earlier this year? LOL it's a small world...she's a forum friend of mine! Rachel's quilt is so gorgeous, you should be very proud.

Rachel's Gelati quilt is wonderful, Janelle. What a beautiful work of art! She will treasure it.

Love that cupcake fabric - makes such a sweet looking bag. Yum.

Hope your household is back to being healthy and happy.

PS I was showing off the beautiful bag you made me to a friend of mine. Lots of ohhhing and ahhhing. Her 8 year daughter is so in love with it that I had to make sure she didn't take it with her when she went home! LOL
