Gift Tote Bag

Dear hubby returned home the other day and I immediately dragged him out to buy an iron. I- sorry he- chose this babe. It is a simple iron but very effective at opening creases. Also, it has a nice, pointy nose which easily irons your seams open. Love it!

It was one of my good friends' daughter's first birthday a couple of weeks ago, which I forgot.  I bought her a series of Dr Seuss books as a gift when we went out to buy the iron. Last night, I remembered that I had some beautiful Dr Seuss fabric I bought last year just because I am a fan of him. It was waiting for a cute project to be used. Sooo, I whipped this cute tote bag up as a second gift.

I quilted the bag with a loopy pattern- not very visible in the photo.

It couldn't have been better than this. :)

And because my husband knows my love for quilting and anything related to quilting, he got me this as a gift!

This is a brand new magazine which is released in the UK. I have seen it on some American quilting blogs too. I looked for it here but wasn't able to find it. I think it takes looong for it to come to Down Under :) 
Losing myself among the pages of this magazine at nights with a cup of tea is my new way of relaxing. I can't ask for more.
