I’m sorry that it has ages since I last wrote to my blog. Hopefully, I can get back into the swing of things soon.
I have been sewing though and I’d like to show you what I’ve been up to.
So without further a do let’s get to the pictures ;) First up is a Dear Jane block I’ve just completed. A-7 Dad’s Plaids. It’s a remake as the original which was the very first DJ block I made was made in different fabrics and after 3 blocks I changed my mind to go repro. Here’s the first one I did just to show you.
Here are a few gifts I’ve made over the past couple months. First some stitchery fridge magnets. From Anni Downs’ book “A little book of little stitches Simple Pleasures”
Then I finished off a Japanese style bag I made using some Japanese woven and printed fabrics (except for the red and handle) The handle I bought. First side.But I made the little zip pull… so chuffed with that bit can you see it :-D The little round thing dangling from the side near the handle. Here is side two }
A couple of sewing wallets. From Lise Bergene’s book “A Passion for Patchwork” Love this book!!
I also got a picture of the snow in our back garden in November but it is looking the same now since we’ve had more snow since.Last but not least I managed to catch a photo of my DS lounging on my sofa drinking a beer and reading a book on Christmas Day :-)
Well that’s it from me for now. I a couple more pictures but I’ll save them for another day :)
