I made these two pouches using the quilt-as-you-go method. Not only was the method a first for me. Making bags with a zipper was as well. I am not 100% satisfied but learning by doing is great. And of course I had to make some more matching key strings too.
Out of zippers and key rings I started to piece the HSQ quilt and basted it and now it’s ready for quilting.
And diamonds of course…. No weekend is complete without diamonds
I also got some practical items ticked off my list as well.
In between I squeezed in some hot cocoa with whipped vanilla cream for my son. He and DH went on the World Championship bicycle route today (WC is held next week in this area). It was 25 km in pouring rain and low temperatures. He was so cold that he started crying from exhaution but only when he came up the driveway. He is such a tuff little thing – he eats his pain as we say in Danish. I made him a hot bath and then some coca. And the rest of the afternoon we enjoyed Mrs. Doubtfire on the TV. And yes... on the picture you see him surronded by all grown-ups. He is really that tough.
Brilliant weekend in my opinion – hope yours was just as good.
