Fabric with Friends

Ooh, look I found the fabric I went looking for.
All I accomplished with the fabric on Friday night was to cut the pieces required and then I reverted to sitting on the couch.
I pulled out this project too. The fabric and pattern were collected back in 2009. It is true I have pondered the instructions (all 45 pages of them) on a number of occasions since the purchases were made, but I am still missing some of the important bits required to get this lovely useful bag together.
I may have just the excuse looming in the not too distant future to use this type of bag so I need to collect the remainder of the requirements to get construction under way. It was lovely reacquainting myself with this array of Ink and Spindle fabrics and I am looking forward to getting back to my sewing machine regularly.
There was a little knitting last night and today at my local knit group, but I think you've probably all seen those two socks often enough lately. I can report though that the burgundy sock has progressed to the foot and the purple sock going in the opposite direction is up to the leg.

When I got back from socialising this afternoon I turned on Nomee for a little run through. Since the last time I used her, about a year ago, she has spent a little time visiting first 'the old people' and then the sewing machine doctor. All's good and she's quite positively purring again. I started with something small and it is almost done, just some finishing touches to add. I will have evidence soon.
Thanks Cheryll for having us round, it's so much fun to create with friends.
Wishing you all a creative Sunday.

Isn't it wonderful to sew and chat and be around like minded friends. We are very lucky! Love your fabrics and I also love that Sleepover Bag.. We saw it in the shop at Warwick on our retreat and I was "this close" to buying it. She has it made up and in the flesh in the shop and it is even more wonderful in real life!!! I hope you get the rest of the things you need for it and get the time to make it. I will be very jealous ha ha. Have a lovely weekend xx
