here ( crazy mom quilts) and the directions were very easy to follow. It is really a surprise when you unzip the bag to find three little zippered compartments inside. By the way I got 2nd place and won a $25.00 voucher to spend on fabric. Lucky me.

I have a friend who does wonderful crocheting and will help me if I get stuck. The pattern for the Log Cabin Quilt is here and the directions are very easy to follow and the blocks are quick to complete. There are a few threads to stitch in but that doesn't take long either. I am very eager to get this project completed.

Embroidery Garden. The design uses the single petals that are bought in packets of a couple of hundred, and then you just lay them out in a circle and sew around on the bottom edge of the petals, starting from the outside working towards the centre. Covering the petals with some sovly helps with the stitching and stops the petals getting caught up. I stiffened the doily and then stitched it on the bag around the edge and then hot glued the rose on. I also used some old costume jewellery that I had for the centre of the rose.
