My Sewing Caddy

 I have wanted to make this pattern up for years i have had the mag folded ready at the place for so long now,lol.
 Its a sewing caddy designed by Leanne Beasley and is quite a clever idea,its sits on the arm of a couch for you to put your pins and threads and anything else you need in there nice and handy.
 It is in a country threads mag vol 5 no 6 if anyone was wanting to make it.
My 2 GD's have their solo comps in Warrnambool today its an early start for us 6am so no late night stitching tonight,plus the little monkeys came for a sleep over last night they wanted their grandma fix,lol,oh i love my grandies.

Oh My the inspiration was awesome

 I was in awe of all the beautiful projects around the hall,xmas everywhere it was so lovely to see all these beautiful projects made by Lisa Cantlay of Fig'n'berry and Marg Low.
 If you are wanting any of these patterns Karen of Mrs Martin Quilt shop has them in stock,i bought the pattern for the sewing set of Marg Lows in the bottom left hand corner,the bigger bag is for putting your light in that a lot of  sewers take with them now,it was so cute being made in fabric and felt.
 And oh boy were we feed well the food was to die for,wish i had taken pics of the fresh cream cakes and gaint muffins which were for morning and afternoon tea and we had lasagne and salad and fresh bread rolls for lunch with a choice of choc mud cake and cream or the berry cheese cake,which was so nice,boy what an awesome day we had.
