A Finish or Two

I am playing Catch UP! The family birthdays keep rolling around and I am so far behind I decided that I should at least attempt to remedy the situation. The first thing I finished was this owl pouch for me. Yes, it is already full, I made it to carry a set of maths cards which I use when working in Primary school. It is perfect in every way, I hope I get to use it though I think that may not be anytime soon. Then there is this version of the Saturday Morning Tote designed by the talented Gail Pan, which appeared in Australian Homespun No. 70. Using left over Paris Cats fabrics in the blue colour way I have pieced the front and strap, the back features the fabric you see on the sides of the front. Yes, I did have a play with ricrac again, I think I have figured out how to get it on straight, don't be lazy and change the foot on Nomee, she like it much better that way.
Still on the sewing table a mug bag using more of my coffee themed fabrics and a sewing compendium which also features Paris Cats fabric.
On the crochet front I am almost finished my twelve sided couch blanket. Yesterday I finished the last ball of multi coloured yarn and as I have plain blue leftovers in the same brand I am putting a plain border on it, one more round to go. I am pleased with how it looks and it is so cosy to snuggle under, it has been keeping me warm while I work on it on these cold nights we have been having lately.
Wishing you all a fantastic week and for those here in Victoria a successful start to term three.
Happy Creating
