Bargello Quilt, bag, doll and Eva Cassidy

Soon my vacation will be over and  I'll be going back to work so the sewing and blogging will be reduced...

I was looking up " The Quilting Gallery"  , Bargello Quilts , when I remembered a quilt I made quite a long time using the Bargello design.

This is how it turned out;

The fun part was buying one fabric only (black and white) and then hand dyed to make up the various colours. I had such fun doing it that  would like to organise myself to do another hand dyeing session again.  What stops me, is the fact that I have a huge tub of hand dyed fabrics yet to be used... is that an valid reason ?

This week I have been using this bag I made a couple of years ago. At the same time I completed this dolly for my daughter's collection. I have the pattern for the boy as well but haven't attempted him yet. The hair is made of felt. So cute e so easy to make.

And now some music...

Eva Cassidy was an American vocalist known for her interpretations of jazz, blues, folk, gospel, country and pop classics.  Her music has also charted top 10 positions in Australia, Germany, Sweden, Norway and Switzerland.  Sadly she passed away at age 33.
