Trying to keep up to date

Sorry for the longish silence here. I've been inundated with visitors again (all good) which didn't leave me much time for sewing. This week I've tried to catch up though and I have a few things to show you. 
The latest installment from Blogger's BOM.
It's growing nicely.
March is Karen's month for the "Around the World Quilting Bee". 
I was glad the fabrics arrived in time, so I was able to put the block together before we leave. We're going to be in Switzerland for about a month and I'm looking forward to some cool air and seeing friends and family. Talking about friends and family; I made a couple of gifts to take back. Since I'm still on a bag making roll I've made this reversible bag as well as a tissue cover for a wonderful neighbour of my mum's, who is so helpful, I don't know what we would do without her. 

I also made this cosmetic bag with the matching tissue cover

                         and yet another bag with a some more tissue covers. It's always good to have a few extra gifts handy as we are bound to be invited for meals here and there.

OK, I better go and pack as we are leaving tonight. I will "see" you in April, if not before.
