Friday night saw me finishing off my plate bag.

At Sunday Stitchers we all take food for lunch - meats and salad bits, so we need to take a plate and cutlery.
Last Christmas Sandi gave us each a cutlery holder and placemat.... and I made a simple bag (using a tea towel for easy laundering) as a present for Inca on her Birthday.  The idea took off and a lot of the SS girls made one when on retreat this week, so I thought I better get my act into gear and make one for me.

I also did some stitching on this lot...

These blocks to be made into a quilt for one of my daughter's bridesmaids.  There were 4 bridesmaids in all...all are married now and I have already gifted this quilt to my daughter and chief bridesmaid, so I am now making 3 more . . . mmm...I know what you are thinking.
(By the way, if anyone has any of this fabric in this colour that is spare...I would love to hear from case I run out...It's a Harvest Home fabric.)
Thanks again to Cheryll for hosting and coordinating all of us happy sewers.
