Lazy Dazy Bag

February 08, 2010

Hello I have been busy recreating a bag pattern that I have on my website. ( www.pinevalley.co.nz ) I have made this in a different colour way and will be selling it as a kit. This bag was originally created out of left over blocks from one of my quilts and has become a favourite for when I go to my stitching groups. I made the new bag for a lovely lady ( Becky) who lives on Great Barrier Island and runs the local golf course. My husband goes fishing over on Great Barrier Island for a week every year in February, ( my week of peace and uninterrupted sewing time ) and has done for at least 20 years. There are sometimes at least three boats that go and it has become a ritual to play golf as a competition between the boats, (as well as the biggest fish of course ) our boat has always won this competition and Becky takes great care of all the men while they are there, so to thank her for her trouble I made her this bag. Happy quilting Sharon
