A bit of stitching :o)

I got together with my friends Valerie and Lyn (no blogs) today and we did some stitching. They both wanted to make my toiletries bag so I thought I'd make another one too .... that's 5 I've made now LOL, but this one I'm going to keep, cos it's PINK!!!!! And I LOVE pink!!!!! I should have piccies of theirs to show you next week - they hadn't quite finished them when it was time to go home so I left them with their homework he he he.

I haven't forgotten that my giveaway finishes on Saturday!!!!! How exciting!!! You still have time to leave a comment here to win - I'll draw 3 winners and they'll each receive the pattern to make this cute Panda quilt (that's still looking for a name ;o)!!!!) ..........
I've had some fabulous suggestions for names for the quilt and I'll let you know what I've decided on when I announce the winners :o).

Also there's still plenty of time to get your bids in on my Ebay Auction to aid the Victorian bushfires appeal. The auction is for a kit to make my JoyPatch Diamonds and Braids quilt ..... almost the same as the one pictured above, only the charms squares are slightly different. Included in the kit is a Moda "Laurel" jellyroll, 1 yard Moda "Oak Leaves and Reel"; 1 yard Moda "Simplicity"; 40 x 5" Moda "Laurel" charm squares and a "Diamonds and Braids" pattern by JoyPatch. You will have to provide batting and backing fabric for yourself.
You can find the listing here :o). Every cent made on my auction will go to Red Cross for the bushfire victims.
That's all for now ... talk soon
