Peg Bags

or clothes pins....

That's what my North American friends call pegs!

I needed a new one and had 'pinned' Carla's version 

(here) on Pinterest ages ago. 

And before too long a friend ordered two more!

I was able to enclose all the seams by altering the 

final assembly step!

They are a surprisingly quick make!

It's great to have another gift idea in the vault!

I think they'd be a good item for fairs and fetes too.

Happy sewing!

The quickest...

I've ever knitted a garment, albeit a short-sleeved 
It took me less than a month to knit my Soldotna 

And I enjoyed every part of it!

I didn't think I could knit a whole garment in the 

All knit stitches except for the bands, short rows, 
loose bind off!

I love how it works with my skirt...

I'm thinking of making one with long sleeves!

Happy days!

Drifting along...

My sew-jo seemed to have taken a little holiday recently....

Although since Christmas, I've made a skirt,

which is a little crushed because I have worn it 

a couple of times already!

And a blouse.....

I love gingham!

We have been experiencing terrible bush fires here 
in Australia.

They have not affected me directly, apart from some 
dreadfully smoky haze.

I do have friends in the north-east who have evacuated once and are now back on a 'watch and act' alert.

So I decided to join the call for 'cool ties' for the amazing firefighters, many of whom are volunteers!

These are so easy to make, using the free tutorial 
found here.

I'd hoped to find my sewjo amongst my Cotton and Steele scraps...

and before I knew it I was pressing, cutting and piecing log cabin blocks!

Happy days!
