Hello!! Happy 2013!! Its not too late for well wishes is it?  My poor old blog has been very neglected but it has all been worthwhile having successfully completed my Cert IV in Residential drafting! woo hoo!  Just need to find a job now ; )

Anyway havent got much to report , enjoying lazy days with school hols at the moment, doing a bit of sewing, enjoying the rain ( what there is of it )

Heres my first sewing finish for 2013..

A sewing case made from this book, 

 I kind of did my own thing with this and followed the basic pattern for putting in the zip, Its in Japanese so just followed the diagrams

Im doing a bit of hand quilting as well so its very handing for keeping all my bits and pieces together...

Hopefully you will see (hear) a bit more from me this year, 

Happy Crafting!

You clever thing - being able to take something and make it from a book just from pictures.

Keeping my fingers crossed for the job hunting.

Oh Melissa!!! You're back! I'm soooo pleased! I think of you very often as I'm having a burst of activity on my beloved Sugar Flower Quilt, which I'm making with the glorious fabrics you sent to me....whilst leaning against the quilt you made.....how can I not think of you! Your sewing is fab as always.I think I need a link to that book! Congrats on getting your qualification. You'll get snapped up if anyone has any sense. Happy New Year my friend. Amanda xxxx

Such a lovely project! I wonder if that book is by Atsuko Matsuyama? A friend purchased it, but she doesn't know. Think I'll ask a Japanese speaker. Did you order the book from Amazon Japan?

Welcome back - though I see a bit more of you on Flickr. Does that book have an ISBN number you could email me - wouldn't mind trying to find it sometime. Thanks

I also would love the isbn... this is a great organizer, and so cute.

Sewing friends are wonderful! I don't have any here in the small town where I live, so I connect virtually with quilters through my blog and Instagram. It's great to have so many like-minded friends, even if I've never actually met any of them!
