Hi Cuties, I’m still in isolation till Tuesday morning so what else to do but sew!

I finished my new bag (you knew I would didn’t you?). He he he.

So today I’m making a new table runner. I actually want it to put on my kitchen bench. Another Sweetpea design done and dusted.

The bag was made in my 14x9 hoop and so is the table runner. I’m up to the second design on the table runner.

The bag is in my fave colour combination of black and white. I made a black and white one 2 years ago. This is similar, but I didn’t put a zipper pocket on the inside, Just on the outside. In my original one I had an inside zipper pocket and 2 outside lined sections. It was fun!

Love Chris

Your purses, quilts, runners, wall hangings----what am I leaving out?? Are always beautiful. I just love all the colors you choose including the B & W's.

Hi Mary, yes, it's a great design. I believe there are 3 versions of it. This is the first version. Love Chris

Hi Caroline, yes, it's good to be able to sew. Trev's on his computer doing work and as it's been pouring rain up north, he's decided to teach on line tonight, so that his students don't have to travel to TAFE (Technical and Further Education) at Tighes Hill, in the atrocious conditions. Love Chris

Your black and white bag is a show stopper! I bet a lot of people will be staring at it!

Hi Penny, a lot of people comment on my older one, so I'm sure I'll get some comments for this one. Love Chris

Hurray on soon being freed. I hope everyone who showed symptoms are well on their way to being healthy again. I love the bag. And the runner is looking beautiful. I hope you manage to finish all of the projects you planned to do, before your quarantine is over.

Hi Karen, well I've nearly finished the runner today, so just have to back it.

I'm taking Mum out shopping tomorrow and collecting my Navy, white and lemon quilt from the quilters. It's been there since before Christmas, but her husband got Covid, then she hurt her arm by trying to get everyone's quilts done. Love Chris

All are stunning! I have several Sweet Pea designs! Just a few more days for your quarantine, and your time has been well spent. Hugs and flowers, Suzanna

Hi Suzanna, thank you and I can't wait to get out. We've had so much rain anyway, so it's been good to be stuck at home. Love Chris

Your new purse turned out great! I love the beginning of your table runner - looks like a design from Sweetpea that I purchased a while ago. I look forward to see how yours finished! Sounds like you are enjoying your new embroidery machine!!! Hugs to you, Laura

Hi Laura, no these have been made on the Ruby Royale. I', awaiting on bobbins for the new Epic, of course, they have made them bigger than the previous ones. That's the only thing I hate about Husqvarna, they change the hoop size connections, the bobbins etc. practically every time they make a new model. Love Chris
