Frantically working

I have been working all week on my spider web's for the Halloween Block swap. It took me a while to get into the rhythm but now I have a routine. They are more labour intensive than some of the other things I have done but I am enjoying it. Here is a sneak peek. Each spider web is unique.

I also had a post earlier this week which I deleted. I had signed up for a friendship bag swap and then decided not to join. I have never made a bag before and I decided it was too much pressure to make my first one for someone else. I also have some fabric that I love which would make a great bag. I have decided instead to make one for myself.

Here is something I have gotten for myself. I have been collecting turquoise/aqua and pink fabrics for a quilt. I saw the Full Moon Owls and fell in love with them. I managed to find a half yard of them in the turquoise and pink colourway. I got it on Friday. I love the owls. They are so majestic.

Hi I hope you are well. We definitely have to get together and I'll show you how to make a simple bag to start. Once you've made'll want to make more. So we should try to figure out our schedules and we can make a bag together.
