laptop sleeve

our laptop was coming along for the journey on our trip home a few weeks ago, and since it was cold in england i decided it needed a winter coat of it's own. a little look through my file of tutorials and i came across elizabeth of oh fransson fame's laptop sleeve tutorial. i have used it before to make a gift to much success.

i chose this echino glasses print in black,so it's manly enough for my husband! and simply lined it in a cream twill which i had on hand.

The tutorial is very well explained, and i found it really easy to follow.

My Creative space......

My how quickly Thursday rolls around! I'm sharing my creative space with a single girl.....

Single girl arcs

This little pile is 620 handcut pieces of fabric stitch together to one day soon make up a fan-dabby-doozy king size quilt for our bed! (note the trousers folded up in the background - need sewing back together after I ripped the crotch - must get on that diet ASAP!)

Single girl arcs

I'm fairly far behind the schedule for the Single Girl Quilt Along run by Katy, Nova and Meg, but that doesn't bother me - as long as I get this baby finished one day! Go check out the flickr pool to see some fab finished quilts and quilt tops.

My arcs are on hold until my background fabric arrives - kona bone ordered from Sew Fresh fabrics on etsy.

So from now until it arrives, my creative space is going to be filled with finishing some much neglected WIPs!
