Christmas crafts

I made these out of old Christmas decorations. I had to buy the little baskets, though. Found two little pots for the little santas. The pine cones were collected from a golf course a while back. I knew they would come in handy!! LOL At the back of the picture, against the wall are two half wreaths. I love Christmas!!!

All done!!! I added buttons to make it more interesting! The flowers on the left should be facing upwards!! LOL I really don't know why I did it that way....... Might redo it later!

Got to apologise for not being able to post the Christmas crafts.. The lighting was not good enough. I couldn't capture the true colors of the Christmas decorations! Will try for the next blog!

Quilted the middle and top sections with straight line quilting. Did the square sections with diagonal quilting. I'v e also made two plain handles with the same green fabric as the middle section. For the lining of the bag, I cut 3 inches green fabric and sewed onto calico. Made the green fabric as the top of the lining bag.

I was caught up with some Christmas craft projects and neglected this bag. But I'm back!! Will post the Christmas crafts on the next blog!
I added a darker green fabric for the bottom half of the bag and two lighter green strips for the top.
When I saw this bag in the book, I told myself this is one bag I must try and make! The only problem I have is that all the instructions are in Chinese! So I just 'agak agak' and went ahead with it! I love craft books and as long as there are nice pictures, I think all of us can somehow figure a way to make it!! LOL

Another Japanese Bag

I saw this bag pattern in one of the books I bought a while back. Been eyeing it for a while! I am using the same fabric combination as my other Japanese bag projects! Love the colors!! LOL

Machine is working well. Sorry it took so long to post this! Took this picture after trying the machine. There is a sound on the machine which I have yet to identify! I hope it is nothing serious!!! LOL
This is the same quilt that was on the frame when the disaster happened! Once the quilting and binding is done, I have to send this quilt to the laundry shop to try and get the stain marks removed. By the way, the electrician came on saturday to remove the fan and hopefully, able to repair and fix it back soon.
