PQs BO2M 2013

For the last 2 years, we have been offering a project every two months as a stitchalong for our Guild, the PQs.  Last year it was in the form of a mystery quilt, and you can see mine here.  This year we decided to do a group of small projects - this time sewing accessories.  In November it will be time for the last project for 2013, and I thought you might like to see them together.
The knot bag is November's project, and is a free tutorial from Dame Valiste.

Here is everything together - zippered pouch, sewing machine mat, pincushion, notebook covers and sewing machine cover.

Next year we are back to making a quilt and I was working on that yesterday.  The aim is always to provide a framework for each person to add their own ideas and variations, so the plan allows for a lot of size variation. 
Otherwise I have almost finished stuffing a small petasson, and our 365 day hearts are progressing nicely !
