Completed handbag project


Well this month seems to have been one of starting lots of different things, but when I came to tally up the completions... it was nearly a big fat zero!!
Thank goodness though for this cute wee project a friend gave me last year, isn't it lovely?
It has been in my handbag and has been carted around all over the place, and pulled out from time to time when I had a few moments to spare. I pulled it out at hockey one night and got growled at later by YD who was sitting across the pitch in the dugout waiting to play! She did concede that I didn't really embarrass her - I think (hope?) she was amused more than anything else!

I did myself proud with my recycling efforts. Here I am joining two scraps of batting for the little wallhanging.....














.....And here I am trimming off the edges cutting it to size.....
.....look what happened to the scraps..... 
.....two more klosjes!!
And today is One Flower Wednesday also; I have nearly completed one today - just attaching the garden path around it; maybe I'll have a little vase full to brag about next week!

Raewyn, thats a lovely wee wall hanging. I use my bits batting on wall hangings too but I'm lazy and use basting spray. Its a god send.
