Fresh sewing day

I thought I hadn't done that much in July because paid work kicked off and the summer hols started.
 I made lots of little purses to give away to people. I also made two pencil cases for special more deserving teachers. I seem to have misplaced the pictures of those though.
 Little wallets made using a pattern bought at quilt taffy's Etsy shop.
 Husband has a "man" version, which is on a business trip with him as we speak.
I made two of these blocks using a tutorial on Lilly's quilts.

I finished Kaleidoscope baby quilt and a cushion for my mother. I also started a dress for Darling daughter but that is still a WIP and did some work on Monochrome quilt.

Well must get on with some report writing before I take the girls to the farm.
I am linking this to the small blog meet.


  1. love your block you made from the Lily's Quilts tutorial, great colours. Love your little zip pouches too, they make such good little pressies. thanks for sharing. Cat

  2. Oh that block is beautiful! I'm scared to use black, but it makes that block pop so wonderfully!

    1. Alyce I was too but I was given some fat quarter packs which contained black. I didn't know what to do with them. I loved Lynne's quilt with black background, so took the plunge. It's good to do things out of your comfort zone I think. Even if it's only using a different background colour :-)

  3. Those little wallets are so cute. And I love the block. I turned out so well!

  4. One can never have too many wallets... They always come in handy. Your blocks are beautiful :)

  5. Thanks for dropping by my blog! I love that block at the bottom, the colours look great against the black. It brings all those different patterns together so well :)

  6. Oh and I meant to say, you should try crochet again :)

  7. The block is beautiful! Another great pattern is Lilly's quilts! She is way too good!

  8. Love your block, and those purses are so cute!

  9. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! The block is beautiful! And those little wallets are just adorable!

  10. Love your block and your little bags!
