Today I am joining in "Colourful Friday" but first I want to share a project I have just finished. My "Love You" Tote Bag. This is from Natalie Bird's book "A Thankful Heart" which I recently purchased.
I used a fat quarter that I had and used matching Homespun on the other side. Pink Gingham was used for the lining and ties on the side. I quilted around the letters and on the other side I used my "Wavy Edge" ruler to draw some lines and quilted on these. This bag is just the perfect size to put a magazine in,so great to take a small project if you have some waiting to do.
All throughout Natalie's book there are little sayings. On the tote bag page is this one. Enjoy.
I am thankful for Love.
For Loving and being Loved.
For kisses and hugs, and gentle loving whispers.
I am thankful for the love of my family and friends, the deep abiding Love that my soulmate,
and the wonderous unconditional Love that I have for my children, my greatest blessing.
Now for "Colourful Friday" Robyn chose the subject "Leaves". Wasn't it lucky we are in the midst of Winter otherwise my photo's might be brown. Lots of different textures and colours were found in the vegie garden. Plus I do like looking at the spider webs with all the dew drops early in the morning. Thanks Robyn for choosing a great subject to photograph this week.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
