I made a very good friend while living in the states. Actually a made a few but 2 were called Nancy so we usually referred to one of them as Miss Nancy. Lucky for me, Miss Nancy has a son who lives in Australia so she comes down occasionally and I get to see her. On her last visit she came up here to see me. We had a lovely day checking out some gift shops and enjoying the beaches (although we didn't brave the water). Miss Nancy bought some quilt books for me, a pin cushion, some gorgeous thread and batiks. I just realised I havent taken a photo so I will blog about them next time. I made a couple of gifts for her.in color order. It is a great easy pattern. The needle case is another free tutorial. This time at Sew She Sews. The last is a pin cushion with a pocket. The fabric I used is of Australian flowers which a friend gave me from many years ago. I lined the bag with some fabric Miss Nancy gave me which I had left over. It matched and I couldnt resist using it..
