In time!!!

Hi Ladies,

It was a difficult month. My grandmother died the 10 th of august
a week after her 90 th birthday. My parents where in France and
had to come home 2 days later. I had to arrange the funeral with
my aunt and uncle, because my parents weren't in the country.
I never knew that arranging a funeral was so much work. A week
later we had the funeral. It was difficult.
Meanwhile, I had to make a quilttop for the shop where I work.
I finished it a few days ago. It's handpieced.


 
Tuesday evening, I made the stitchery for the sewing bag and
yesterday, I finished the bag!!!



                                     
After I took the pictures, I saw that I forgot the handles :-)
                                  
                                    Have  a nice day!!!
                                           Martine
