I have been busy --- with a little of this and that and not much of anything!!
I made myself a lunch bag to take my lunch to work with me. It is a pattern from the Moda Bakeshop blog. I made the bag much bigger than the pattern called for. It is the small bag for a charm pack. Makes up in to a great little lunch bag. Everyone at work wants one now!! Yah........... That will be my next project ---LOL. Although I did promise that I would make a Christmas stocking for the Craft fair in November.
I was at the Vancouver quilt guild's Quilt show last weekend. It was a very nice little show. There are a few pictures of the show floating around blogland. I ran into Wendy -- from Snippets of a Quilter at the show. It was so great to see her. I haven't seen her in person since last year. Wendy has some great photo's of the show on her blog. I went to the show with my Friday stitch group -- Gathered Threads... Krista has some great pictures of the show on her blog as well... at Poppyprint. Krista's latest post is about her fabulous Halloween cookies.... worth the read!
I bought a bit of fabric from my favourite African fabric shop -- Kitambaa. This is African Indigo fabric!! I bought two bundles --- as they were different. Who knows what I will do with it. Love the buttons!!
Here is a nice picture of the new kitchen/dining area now that the furniture is back. Very modern....I am loving the new kitchen. It is so much nicer to work in -- bigger, it seems so much brighter as well even though the window is not much bigger than the old window it seems so much bigger. Maybe it is the fact that the area is not so closed in and we get light from the rest of the house as well.
The stone masons have been busy this past week. They are a group of men from El Salvador. They have been doing a great job but it is slow work because they can't work in the rain and we have entered our "rainy season" so they work only a day or two here and there. They were here again today and I will put up some pictures of the front of the house when I can take some pictures in the day light.
