Little patchwork bags

I've been spending a large part of my crafting time the past week or so making these little patchwork drawstring bags, mostly to give away, but I might keep one for myself. They're really easy to make - by far the most effort is in cutting the squares.

I also made a few little felt Christmas decorations. Not for me, of course! I am quite bah humbug about stuff like that. But I thought one of my swap partners might like them.

It's been a bit of a funny week, with antibiotics, pain killers and allergy medication making me feel a bit vacant. The news that I have to have another implant dampened my spirits a bit, after all the pain, hassle and expense of the root canal a few months ago. Oh well, at least this one should be easier and faster than the last one.

News just in as I write this, is that one of the photos I took while I was in Queensland is being featured in an online tourist brochure. Check out the widget below. (I think some of the others I took are a lot better -- this one, of the view of Coolangatta Beach from my hotel balcony, is kind of mediocre).

My photo is here.

Cute little bags, do you happen to have a Fassett one in the pipeline?

One of them used KF fabrics. Why do you ask?

I am so sorry, Sam, that you have to get another implant; I'll keep my fingers crossed that it all goes smoothly!

(Coincidentally, I've had some spaced out days this week myself due to cold medicine and allergy pills. It's been no fun, and I hope you feel more present and less vacant soon.)

And congratulations on your featured photo!

Thank you, rr.
