Pre NUndle sewing

I did manage a bit of sewing before going to Nundle...........we had to make a paper pieced pincushion to swap with someone there.

 This was my pincushion which was randomly picked by Chookyblue LOL



And this was the lovely pincushion I received from Margaret from Champagne Quilters LOL


While I was making the pincushion I had a brilliant idea to make a new bag to take to Nundle, not very brilliant though as this was only the weekend before going!!
But I am glad I made it and I absolutely love it! The fabric and pattern were given to me from Diana in a swap last year, the bag is from a local girl to her and is a great pattern to make. And of course the fabric is Rounneries by French General, my all time favourite fabric!

I didn't buy much while in Nundle this year as Kerry was holding a bundle of the most gorgeous Ruby Flannels for me - I can't wait to make a shaggy quilt with these.
But I did buy just these few things....
very restrained I thought LOL
