A Day of Finishes!

Yesterday was a productive day!
Firstly I got Kat’s block done for the Sew Bee Happy monthly bee group:
Kat is putting together a rainbow reverse star picnic quilt, and we all got to choose a colour to do our own block in.  I went with the pale aqua/duck egg blue category and pulled together all the scraps I could find.  
These blocks are 17.5″ unfinished, but really quick and easy to make.  So this will be winging its way to Oz next week.
Secondly, I got my Mouthy Stitches Swap Pouch finished!
You may remember I started with this design:
which quickly turned into this heap of fail!
And the moral of the story is – don’t try stepping out of your comfort zone late at night when you’re tired!
So back to the drawing board.  I can’t explain too much behind the whys and wherefores of this design because it would completely give the game away as to who this pouch is for.
My photography skills aren’t improving any!!!

Daughter no.1 made the cute owl zipper pull, and the bright, floral print is some original 1960’s vintage fabric.

I have one more wee surprise to make, to go along with the pouch, and that will be me finished and ready to post to *&%$£!+* (you didn’t actually think I would tell did you?).
Hope you’ve have a productive weekend!
