Fudge and I have been busy.

Kia-ora or hello, as the title suggests Fudge and i have been busy sewing up a storm as the saying goes.Since finishing Kerri's and Alexa-Mays bag we have been away to a family wedding in Queenstown and had several visitors.In between i have kept Fudge busy with different projects and started a online free motion quilting class, more on that one much later.


for Christmas  made my daughter and daughter in law sets of place mats photo coming and my DIL asked me to make her a oven mitt to match. Sadly no fabric the same anywhere so with a little improvising  here is her oven mitt, the red strips represent the flower on the placemat.My DIL was delighted.



I have been working on a accessory bag one to keep chargers and batteries, and cords and all things that are required to help run these electronic gadgets we all love.

When going away I thought it would be great if they had their own bag. Took me a while to perfect the pattern one of my own and maybe it will become a good bag for a class at my local quilt club

The first one I used Deco stitches on Fudge.[Janome 6500]016Accessory  bag 2 crazy pieced and deco stitched front017 Accessory bag 2 crazt pieced and Deco stitched

The next ones were for a Janome forum challenge using crazy pieced blocks and again embellishing with Deco stitches .I had to do a little improvising here again as my blocks were a little small –I added a piece across the top and bottom to make it big enough for this bag.

These ones are for one of my stitching friends. Some time ago Jann stitched these scraps together and then had no idea what to do with it. I said I would make something out of it. Must admit it took me a wee while to think about what to make.

this is the sample for a class hopefully and I made one the same fory friend in Florida. no its not pieced –super fabric which I quilted using a sparkly thread.

the bag has a shaped side, when looking at it sideways its rather like a waist line across the middle of the side.A little unusual but a good size for those electronic bits we have to take away orkeep in one place at home.

Enough on bags for now.

Who likes my Accessory bag?

Thanks for checking out my blog.

Kiwi Jan and Fudge.
