Not getting much done....

Well, cold and flu season is certainly here and I have had a lovely dose. 

 Still feeling yuk so have not got anything done in the last few days but last week I made a knitting bag for mum using her old knitting bag handles. I loved the bag that used to belong with these, it was a pale pink linen, so gorgeous and so vintage! It fell apart a few years ago and mum saved the handles, I snaffled them from her walk in robe when she was away in England and finally decided on this Heather Bailey fabric - I love Heather's fabrics and am particularly fond of this print. Mum loves her new bag so it was definately a good choice.

I also made these potholders for my best friend Cherie. I love the damask fabric I used on the larger holders, it is part of the Manzanita Collection from Joel Dewberry. This is the first lot of Joel's fabric I have ever bought and have to say it is wonderful to work with. He has a gorgeous new range out and I am loving the persimmon palette, it's so pretty! I will definately be buying more of his fabric ! Still need to finish a table runner and some cushions for Cherie so must get to work!

Lastly, I snapped this last night, it is my darling hubby, Mr Deekie Belle, with our beautiful grandbaby. I can't believe the bug is 3 months old, time really does fly!

Your mom is So lucky!
The knitting bag you made is just gorgeous! I love it!
I just bought a sundress and the color&fabric prints are very similar to your potholders. I love those prints.
Time really does fly!!
I can't believe my baby daughter will be graduating from her middle school this month and as the saying goes "Time flies"
really hit me how true this statement is in life.

Oh! Jenny,
Did you receive my email?
My friend said she will get me the website address for the prism. As soon as I find out, I will let you know..

Have a good one!

I'm loving the damask potholders. I am in desperate need of some new ones myself. Did you use a pattern? Or is that a silly question? :)
