I thought I’d have a little break from blogging back in May – and here we are 4 months later. Hope you had a good summer!
We’ve had a lovely few months, and have just come back from a couple of gorgeous weeks in Corfu. As well as beautiful weather and a very relaxing time we…. saw The Durrells being filmed! Watched the Philippe Starck designed Sailing Yacht A sail by! And looked after a bellydancer’s dog for the afternoon!?! It was memorable, to say the least.
In slightly less exciting news I made a new beach bag for our trip. I fell in love with the crazy birds from Quilting Row by Row a while ago and added them as a panel onto the Market Bag by Anna Graham.
The birds are made from Moda Confett and Grunge/Grunge spot, with metallic Essex linen as the background.
I made the bag a couple of inches deeper than the pattern, and included pockets for sun cream and sunglasses. And a zip pocket for the villa key, to keep it safe! The bag is denim with a quilting cotton lining.
The bag was perfect for our beach trips. It held everything – to the point where it got a bit heavy so we rolled up our towels and carried them separately. I think it will get plenty of use when I go to quilt guild meetings too, to carry my show & tell quilts.
