Latest Sewing and wot not

Today I finished a bag I started last weekend. Its a Laptop bag. I wouldnt recommend the pattern to anyone! It was really confusing and not very thorough. I ended up just doing my own thing to get it finished. The first photo is of the font of it, the second is the back and the third is inside the bag. Inside it has 3 pockets. It also has another zippered section just under the front flap.










Last weekend I finally got around to finishing my Celestial Hearts quilt top that i started at CQ Patchwork retreat in September 08. I have yet to decide how to quilt it. Jan Phillips the designer actually hand quilted hers but I dont think I will be attempting to hand quilt this one! You can see Jans at her website http://www.quilttherapy.com.au/










Also wanted to show off my cupboard that Ronnie from www.cathroncountrydesigns.com/ made me.











Just in case your wondering........ No I am not going for the world record for the longest blog post just thought it was time I got some stuff up on it seeing I have not put anything up for sooooooo long.

Ok next on the agenda we have a photo of a quilt that I finished ages ago. OOOPPSS mean quilt top. For some reason all my quilts get completed into tops and never seem to progress from there. I keep telling myself one day I will quilt them. By the time that day comes maybe I might own a quilting machine LOL

Anyway the pic is of the Orange Crush quilt I made of Bonnie Hunters. She is a big time scrap quilt maker and has give so many patterns away for free from her website...... http://www.quiltville.com/ This pattern was one of her mystery quilts. Her recent mystery quilt is just beautiful so check out her site.
