Snow in a Day!

Yes we had a snow day today! Just a light dusting here in the city!


Rural areas got much more and some schools were closed as a result!

But yippee it's practically all gone now here in Belfast!  This is one of those days when I'm thankful to live in the city!

Thursdays have been shaping up to be productive sewing days for me lately!

I got my 2nd (Judy Newman) Dilly Bag completed:

Dilly Bag in Joel Dewberry

lovely friend generously gave me a bag of her scraps, and in it was a luscious selection of these bright Joel Dewberry (Notting Hill) prints.

Dilly Bag in Joel Dewberry

I started this project over the Christmas holidays, a little bit of EPP to keep my hands busy while watching all those Christmas movies!

Like the first one I made, I quilted the outer bag but this time I added a little bit of piping at the base and some larger pieces from my stash for the top & lining.

Bongo drum anyone!!

If you are interested in making a Dilly Bag for yourself, you can find the pattern here.

I also got another EPP project moved on a stage & started a new paper/foundation piecing project too (dangerous to leave me to my own devices!).  But I'll tell you about those in another post!

Hope you are all keeping safe and warm, whatever your weather.
