Little bags for bag swap

A few little bags quickly made. The first was for a bag swap, but then I got carried away and could not stop making them... I have 7 more cut out ready to make, I thought they would make great little gift bags filled with goodies.
Thank you Rachel for sharing the pattern on your Blog.

Paper pieced Teddy Bear quilt

Paper pieced, using a very cheapo block of paper which was very easy to see through and easy to remove.

My colour choice was based on a teddy bear fabric and plain colours I had in my stash... didn't have to buy a thing! It measures 40 x 40 inches.

I have always wanted a red sports car and had to wait until I am 64 to get one, she is automatic, which is taking a bit of getting use to. The only time I have driven automatics is while on holiday in the USA, so I feel I should be on the other side of the road!
To complete my "mid-life crisis" I have started a diet, let my hair grow long for the first time in years, and moved the walking machine into the house so that I can get fit.

Biopsy, bruises and a block finish

Thursday I went into hospital at 10.30 for my lung biopsy, the staff could not have been nicer and put me at ease. The procedure meant lying...
