We are now day 3 into my wee bag series.
Say hello to ‘Martha May’!

A zippered version

Same pockets on the back as the front

More IKEA fabric!!

These 2 are slightly smaller than Modern Maud, and are actually the result of my playing around with the Bag for Life pattern I sketched out (it’s amazing what you end up with compared to what you start with!).
So what do you think of the new addition to the family?

In other news, yesterday I received my first Small Goodie Swap parcel – all the way from Australia!

Just look at all these lovelies, incl. Denise Schmidt scraps – yum!

The back of the mugrug is as gorgeous as the front!
Thank you Kat for these gorgeous and beautifully made gifts.  When I first saw the pics of them on flickr I almost shouted at the computer ‘pleeeease be mine’, and was gob-smacked when I opened the parcel!  I think I’m the envy of one or two other swap members in the group, tee hee!
We each get 2 parcels in this swap, so I’ve still got one more to look forward to.  Hmmmm, I wonder who it will be from?

And last but not least, I’ve signed up to Emily’s (Strawberry Patch) Christmas Charm Swap.

Emily needs 28 participants, each to purchase a meter of fabric and cut it into 56 charm squares of 5″. We then post the fabric to her, Emily mixes them up and sends us back 28 different prints with 2 squares of each!  Sounds fab doesn’t it?  Now Emily doesn’t yet have 28 people signed up yet, and we can’t run the swap with less than 28, so pleeeeeese hop on over to Emily’s and get signed up. 

And when you do, you’ll have lovely fabrics to get working on the irresistible swap over at Susan’s blog Canadian Abroad!

Phew!  I think that’s all I need to tell you about today.  Have good one whatever you get up to!
