No spring cleaning but a.....

I followed the advice most of you gave me and spent most of my time doing other things then 'spring cleaning'. ( I had to do a little cleaning becouse we don't want to live in a polluted house) So I started to make a new spring bag the same I made a few weeks ago (the other one was solded so quickly). But while I was working on this bag, the Idea for another one came up. So this is the result;

spring shopper bag

It's a spring shopper bag.
Now I'm going to finish te other one.

My doughter just said, 'mom why don't you make a collection of different spring bags?' If I had more time I might just do that.

And there is also this quilt that wants to be finished!

Have a nice spring weekend everyone!

Leuke tas heb je gemaakt maar ik kijk nog steeds vol bewondering naar je quilt.
Het is zo leuk dat je een heel ander effect krijgt met deze stofjes door de geappliceerde dametjes.
Hij is gewoon super origineel.
Groetjes.

I love your new bags but adore that quilt! I have many of these fabrics and think you have really done a perfect job in using them well. The little Matroushka's are so cute. I too think crafting things is more fun that spring cleaning...although we do have to do it sometimes.

Hugs ~
