star quilt

Thought I'd pop in to show you something that's been keeping my hands busy in the sewing room.This quilt sewn with unbleached muslin and natural dyed fabric. The size is 40"x 52"
It needs some kinks worked out and a good iron. I am looking forward to quilting this one up.

one of many

One of many projects in progress. A wool poncho for me. A little slow as the stockinette is a bit boring but, I think the end result will be worth it. Love the color and drape of this wool. A deep midnight navy with tiny flecks in it like the night sky.

sewing for SS15

I suppose I disappeared from here again, not intentionally but, February really threw me and now it seems we are almost halfway though March. While we wait for the snow to disappear (hope last Thursdays storm was the end of it) I decided to sew up a few summer items for the shop in Liberty of London. Most of what I have been working on lately are big projects which I am going back and forth between so it was nice to sit down and sew up these three items over the course of a few hours.

I sold pink rose bloomers in December that were size 6 months so, I decided to make another one. These are size 12 months and are currently listed in my Etsy store:

This print, Claire Aude also size 12 months happen to match a 'Happy Birthday' dress in the same size perfectly in the shop. It would make a lovely set:

A gathered summer top in Coral Meadow was also sewn in size 6-7 years.

I hope to be back here soon to share more of what I have been working on. I have lots more to say but, my right hand is asleep and I need to go pick up the kids from school.

Have you seen the Liberty of London Tana Lawn Seasonal? I have my eye on a handful of these prints.
Also, love to browse through the selection at B & J Fabrics.
