Stitchers Wallet

I just can't get stitcheries out of my head at the moment, as much as I call myself a quilter and really enjoy all stitching it's the stitcheries that have been absorbing my time lately.  Today I finally finished a little project that I've called "A Stitchers Wallet".  It's a pattern I'm in the process of putting down on paper, but I am so darned pleased with the finished product I wanted to share it with you all.  Things just fell into place when I started working on it, the fabric, the thread, button, beads, amazing, trust me it doesn't often do that!
When going away on courses or tutoring I often end up taking far too much equipment for my 'out of class' time, when I'm in a motel room at night. Projects that I take for those times are usually stitcheries so rather than carting a much larger project bag around I decided something small and compact was needed - something that could sit in my handbag and take up about the same amount of space as my wallet, hence the name - A Stitchers Wallet.

So there you have it, a weeks worth of night time stitching - ta daa!
Now what can I plan next? Kaaren has a really nice stitchery as her Friday Freebie that I'm keen to start plus  I downloaded a lovely pattern that Kristie got yesterday when she had a weak moment of fabric buying (even though she got a great deal) it was a freebie from Woolmart I think, so maybe I'll play around with some fabrics for that, but really I should finish piecing the baby quilt for my niece before the wee one arrives.
So once dinner is out of the way I'm off to my wee patch of paradise to hunt out fabrics.
Have an awesome weekend, hugs to all
