It's a finish even if it is small...

So far this year I have managed to finish something each month. The items aren't very big but still need to be finished, and would probably still be unfinished if I didn't have a bit of motivation from the Sew It's Finished blog.
This bag has been sitting in two pieces for probably nearly a year and it was time to finish it. It is made with two triangle shapes which when sewn together make two pockets inside as well. It was a hard one to photograph because it is quite big. I'll probably use it as a project bag rather than a shopping bag becuase it is so roomy.
The pattern is from a local quilt store - The Quilter's Corner and is called The Market Bag.

I know I have been a way for a while - the every day stuff just gets in the way. I have penty to talk about but I thought as I was changing my blog template I would say hello for now and chat properly later.
But while I am here I will introduce you to the love of my daughter's life - Maggie, our dog.

This is the dog who doesn't like having a bath or being in the rain.......but if there is a puddle to jump into she will find it, and want to stay there all day. In this photo she looks all black but she is half border collie ( the other half is labrador) so has a white chest and paws. She is a very much loved member of our family.
Talk soon....
