It is nearly a week since I have blogged. The week has just flown by. Last week I 'road tested' my Super Tote (Anna - Noodlehead pattern) in London. It is the perfect city bag as it is large enough to carry everything and the kitchen sink, as well as being safe due to the zipper closure.

Last Friday I went to a local, to me, quilting show in Spalding. I really enjoyed seeing the quilts that were displayed, meeting up with quilting friends for coffee and going on a fabric buying spree.
This is the fabric that I bought.
I am off on my annual trip to Northern Ireland later this week. I am going to meet up with friends, to go to Focusfest. However, this is also the perfect opportunity to see some of my bloggy friends in person! I am therefore going to fly out a day earlier and stay with Sarah and see Judith too. How good is that? I am getting excited about my big trip abroad!!!
As I am seeing lots of friends I need to take a few little presents with me. Having seen on both Judith's and Sarah's blogs that there is now a bag tax in NI, I decided that I would make some fold up bags. The left hand fabrics in the top photo was bought to make these bags.
Tall boys were the answer!
Now that the bags are made, I need to find a way of keeping the bags rolled up. That is my job for this afternoon!
I also need to have a present for my friend, who I'm staying with over the weekend. I decided that due to the luxury of having a hold bag as well as hand luggage, I would make a cushion.
After seeing Catherine's post I decided to copy her idea and make the flying geese block. I like making flying geese so it was fun to do. Unfortunately this is as far as I have got…
As I am out for dinner with some school mums tonight, going to see a Shakespeare play performed outside at Tolethorpe tomorrow evening (please don't let it rain!) and then Stitching it Together at Tanya's on Wednesday evening, I think that late night sewing might be required if I'm to ever to get these projects finished. Wish me luck!!!
Right, I can't hang round as I need to get sewing!
