Advent Quilt Along 2012

Well my baby is pretty new but I've spent a few hours today working logistics etc out.

There's a Flickr group for us now (created in the past hour so please be nice) and make sure you join it and update on it cause I plan on using both here and there for a few sneaky give always from time to time.

Please don't feel you need to commit to this every weekend if your not able to, you can work this as quick or as slow as you want to. I personally know I need to be quilting this in the summer holidays to get it finished in time for Christmas 2012.

Any questions feel free to ask.

Idea for quilt along

Hey guys. Iv had this idea for a few weeks now and was considering posting this on here.

Would anyone be interested in this as a quilt along??

It's an idea of a quilt along. 25 blocks at 15" each. Dashing between. Perfect size for snuggling under or hanging on the wall.

I'd be interested if you wanted to do some adaptions to yours as well.

I would like to post every Saturday, 3 times a month and last Saturday as day off.

Each number will be totally different on each square and it would be up to you for order. I'd love to think I might have kids and maybe grand kids who would like to look for numbers in years to come.

I know it's a really basic sketch at the minute but I'd love to know if you might be interested. (please note Iv never done this before)

Customised Bag

Well I'm living a thrifted life at the minute. And in need of a new work bag.

While visiting my parents I cleared out a large cupboard full of my stuff and found this bag my friend gave me for a job interview (the lesson was about bag uses)

I decided to remove the Huggies label and decorate it. Now my appliqué is not brilliant but it makes the bag much more cheerful and I'm happy I've found a use for some of my scraps!!

I feel this is a great use of something I already had and being a baby changing bag there's so many useful pockets in it and it's a decent size for work!!!
