Bag from Margaret
I am delighted with the gift. I cannot get over the perfect sewing and finish. I am a very proud owner of this bag.
I have been lucky enough to get birthday gifts from my family which will keep coming over the year. I have a weekend away to the Southern Highlands later this month. There are patchwork shops and Victoria House along the way south, which hopefully will get a look in. My daughter and son in law have given me a ticket to Totem, Cirque du Soleil, and they have tickets too, so we will attend the performance together, which is even nicer. That is in November. My son has given me a subscription to Simply Vintage magazine-- and I am looking forward to the first one, which hopefully, will be here soon. We have gone out to my favourite restaurant for dinner, and I still have 1 more lunch next week with my Tuesday walking companion ( as we go out to lunch for each others birthdays). So I do feel spoilt.
I have had this on the wall for a few months, and realised that I have not put it on the blog. After all it is a craft finish and I should have shown it. I started it when I returned from our UK holiday in late October, and could not believe it when I finished it before Christmas. It is the fastest cross stitch I have ever done.

This is where I am up to so far re my Blue Hexagon quilt. I have umpteen small blue flowers to make, so it will be ages before there will be progress.

I am off to the shops now. Guess which bag I will be taking to the shops today!
