Finally getting busy!

Yes, I'm finally getting busy sewing again...Slowly though! My hubby's aunt from Scotland wanted a couple of bags sent over along with some of my ballet slippers, so she has the choice of these bags. Drawstring, quilted ones as I just love them at the moment!
I've just received the butterflys in pink so I'll be making myself another bag with that lovely fabric soon...

I just love this pears print from Alexander Henry.

And Joyce is madly into cupcakes, so I thought she'd love this one above!

I've also been busy making a few more raggy runners. They're selling really well at the moment, and I can't get them made quick enough! Another one (Pretty pinks!) is in the wash now getting ready for Ebay tonight.

Mary from Sew Hot Mitmot received her parcel I sent her as part of the Polka dot swap. Here is a photo of what I included... A quilted patchwork drawstring bag, a quilted doorstop, a handbag notebook, a bookmark, and some sweet polkadot fabrics. She has posted pic's of the doorstop in use so that was lovely to see!
Best wishes,

As always my dear, well done. I especially like the first bag you did. I'm drawn to that fabric. Did you make all these yesterday? Like the fun of the cupcake one too!

Hi Jenelle,
Those bags are really sweet, as is the shaggy runner. Will pop over to your ebay listing tonight when I have a bit more time, have to go & get ready to go to work now.
Have a great day.

I just love all your work and especially the "rose" fabrics.

I too have gone "cupcake" mad!! I have a couple of table runners on the go and got a set of trays and cups to complete the "image."
