Head in a cloud

I seem to have head my head in a cloud this week - as opposed to a head in the clouds.
Just haven't been able to put my mind to anything new. However I have managed to get a few things finished

Photo effect using 'Photo Booth'

Finished November calendar.

Made a basic page for December.

Decided to unpick some stitching I had done on my quilt, but haven't touched it since.

  Made a couple of book wraps from a piece of 'mad' quilting I had done. So now I shall have these lying around instead of the bit of quilting.


 Finished off some little tree decoration bags I have made for friends.
(Don't tell)
They are bits of Sari ribbon stitched down onto felt. From an idea in this book - and Gina.




And I finished off my bag, and added a vintage buckle from my mother-in-law's button box



And here is the photographer's assistant checking the action.

Have a good week
Jill

Do you think Marv would come and help my sewing? I'm not getting on at all with a Christmas quilt - it may yet become an Easter quilt. love the bright zingy bag.

So good to see the Assistant is looking well and keeping and eye on quality control ! Love love those book covers and the little decorations - both really beautiful. Might pinch your idea and have a go myself sometime.

You might have had your head in the clouds Jill but your hands have carried on working independently!! You have completed loads of things and like Jane, I love the book wraps and the little bags. They will make very welcome gifts I think. How lovely to make something for friends like that. They have a treat in store!

Yes but finishing things is so much more admirable than starting new ones!

Lovely decoration bags, so bright & delicious for a tree. I must look JR up. Quilting is magnificent!

Has Marvin been on some sort of "Youth Elixer"? He looks so young and handsome in that photo! I love your "mad" quilting, so colourful.
