I belong to a sewing group at church--we get together every couple of weeks for a few hours to make items for our upcoming Christmas Bazaar. This past Tuesday, 5 of us met at the church to sew. P and I made two zippered pouches each. J and M made bunting for Christmas, Valentines and Halloween. K worked on another type of pouch. The bin with our new items for this year's bazaar is filling up. We also have some stock left over from the last bazaar in 2019. Here are the pouches that I made. The pattern is from Noodlehead. We have 6 ready to sell at the bazaar now.

Regular readers of this blog will know that I have not been very productive in my sewing room recently. My husband and I are involved in a couple of large projects at the moment that are consuming all of our time and energy. The deadline to finish is looming, so after that, I hope to be able to spend some one on one time with my sewing machine and my knitting needles!
I did manage to finish off the Whistle Stop quilt flimsy this week--The edges of the centre section were all on the bias so I stay stitched 1/8" from the edge to stabilize it before adding the borders. I measured the borders by laying them out across the centre of the quilt on the floor and then pinned a lot so that the quilt would be square without wavy borders. My strategy worked! I will be quilting this one myself, eventually!
I will link up with Kathy and the slow stitchers in the morning and the RSC folks now. I remain hopeful that there will be more to show next weekend!

The Autumn Joy Clematis plants are in bloom right now. Such dainty flowers!
My Gentian plant is also in bloom--such vibrant colour!

Finn is happy to spend some time outside. He often does not want to go back inside after he's done his business...
I will link up with Angela and the RSC folks on Saturday morning and with Kathy and the Slow stitching gang on Sunday morning.
