A Frilly Little Accessory

Remember when I made this Frilly Dilly bag for my friend Fiona's birthday earlier in the year?

She also received a new iphone for her birthday which she loves half to death....and let's face it, who wouldn't? So for Christmas I thought I'd make her a matching iphone pouch.

Seriously, this is one of the cutest things ever! The pattern is from Janelle Wind's book, Pieces of Me.
I also got busy and put the borders on my Gardeners Journal Stitch-A Long quilt...

...forgot to edit the photo...forgive me :) The borders have really balanced the bright colours beautifully....I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out! So tomorrow it will go to the quilters, and she can work her magic on it....quilting is really not my thing :)
Only a few sleeps to go....

your quilt looks great Suzi, and you are so right about the borders,
I have been following your progress on December daily, what a super job you are making of your album. Mine is there is spirit, and I have been jotting journal stuff down, after Christmas....and taking lots of photos of course.

What a lucky friend you have Suzie! Both the purse and the iphone cover are terrific! Your quit top is just gorgeous!! I love the borders, you're right it balances perfectly.

Thanks for popping in over at my blog too, I think I'm outnumbered on the binding my machine issue. I'm going to have to learn to enjoy the binging process... but it's winter now, so mabye sitting with a quilt on your lap for a few hours isn't such a bad thing after all. Thanks for weighing in, I appreciate your very talented and experienced opinion :o)
