Windmill block,

Remember this?


from a post in september?

This block has been laying around here and there in my crafting area waiting to become a pillow or a quilt or... I don't know what.

Until yesterday

When I just knew the right perpose for this block,

A new Dutch windmill bag!

I searched all the fabrics and locked myself up in the my crafting room and started sewing. This the result.

And do not want to have grumpy people around me.
