Dont You Like My New Bag

Dont you like my new bag girls ? I picked out the pattern and fabric however it was my friend Rosie of Rosie's Creations who did the actual making of the bag, aint she a good friend to me?? cheering me up from my dooldrums :>)

This bag is a great size for travel

there is also a smaller version in the next pic you can see the small pocket for your phone or car keys, inside there is another pocket divided into four so you have two smaller pockets and two pen holders , or you could make it one bigger pocket
I'll never work out how to put pics on in the correct place :>)

Shopping Help Please

I'm going with my dd to a conference at Hillsong in Sydney, we have afternoons free my dd is meeting up with blogger friends since I don't want to be the old mother tagging along, it's an excuse for me to let my hair down and go shopping quilting wise don't you think??
So does anybody out there know of any quilting shops in the CBD which is where the hotel we will be staying at is situated??

A day at Launceston

fortunately the Plastic surgeon didn't think Ray needed grafts so that was good, when he tried to take the dressing off it was stuck fast Dr. not happy, the other hospital had put an adhesive dressing on so while the poor Dr was removing the dressing he was also removing all the skin that was left on Ray's arm I was nearly in tears just looking at my poor hubby, so we have a rather sharp letter to take with us to the other hospital with BIG letters saying and underlining do not use algisite or comfeel on burns.
We stopped off at Deloraine for a coffee and checked out the new fabric shop "Fresh Fabric" I bought the pattern for the Paddington Satchel by Moon Shine and a pkt needles.
Then we stopped at the tourist information centre to buy a Tassie Devil keyring for ???. now I just want to sleep :-)

I'm still here

Sorry I have not been posting, I'm doing lots of different projects so nothing to show in the sewing sense, Things have been really sad here, three weeks ago some one shot my Balinese (cat) like a rag doll to look at then Friday night hubby burnt his forearm from his elbow to his wrist so that was not good either back & forward to hospital for dressing changes, then Saturday night my other Balinese was shot.
Tomorrow its away to Launceston Plastic surgeon for reassessment of hubby's arm.
This sounds like poor poor me, forget it I feel like poor me I have to do the dish's now :-)
