Sewing through sunshine and rain

The sunshine comes and goes, annd although it's chilly outside, the sewing room is warm and cosy with the heat of creation. -Or maybe the sewing machine's just about to overheat and will suddenly blow up on me.

Why? This is what I've been up to:

The red gingham/plaid is a flannel and cotton 'quiltlet' - i.e. that's a small quilted piece with three layers, but the middle one's just heavy cotton, not wadding. This mini coverlet is for the dog. Not that he knows or cares, but I do - it will stop him grinding his little hairs into the sofa. Or so I believe in my more delusional moments. Let's move along....

In the background you can see the completed project bag, using Eileen's fantastic fabric from Toronto. Years ago, I made a large market bag using this technique, so I decided to adapt it to a boxy little project.

Perfect for holding a little hand-sewing project - and made entirely from bits from my stash.

I hope you're having a good weekend, too!
