In many parts of the world, Halloween is a time honoured celebration. Not so in Australia where I live. It's only in recent years that Halloween has started to be celebrated. It hasn't been adopted by everyone, but it is becoming more popular, especially with young families.

Denim is a sturdy fabric, and as such, it is the perfect fabric for a man's bag. Grab a pair of old jeans and upcycle them into a unique messenger bag. Worn fabric will just add to the look!

I had the photos put into this blog post not long before Mum went into hospital - just the text to add which I'll do quickly now. Mum's still in hospital, so time is very limited.

I do not consider myself a quilter - even though I've made a few quilts. I've been sewing for many years, but it's only in recent years that I've added quilting to my repertoire. So I was pleasantly surprised when Benita invited me to the 2019 Online Quilters Meet and Greet, with a Great Grand Prize - link to enter at end of post. It's a great opportunity to meet real quilters, and also a good time for me to look at the progress I've made on my quilting journey.
