A couple of finishes and some show and tell

Finally...I have finished a couple of ongoing projects. I had Benny and Sammy's quilts professionally quilted and have bound and labelled them recently. They finally have their baby quilts even though they are nearly 2. Can't believe how much I procrastinated about piecing them! They are not too interested in them yet but will enjoy them as they get bigger.

 I have also finished this lovely bag using the pattern from the book, In my Garden, by Natalie Bird. It is a good size and I am pleased with how it turned out.
 I used the other picture I stitched on the back pocket.
 I went to stitching with friends on Friday night and Heather has been so busy. She has made this gorgeous little zippered purse from a kit.
 She is also crocheting this amazing rug!
 Heather's Chateau Hexagon quilt is looking really good and only needs borders. I love the trees she has embroidered near the castle. Heather has added her own special touches to this quilt.

I must get going on my one!

Beautiful show and tell on your blog today. I particularly love the zippered purse with the strawberries on it. I collect anything that is a fabric strawberry design and would love to get this kit. Can you help me?
