Down. My poor daughter is still under the weather, and I am fitting in extra work whenever she is at school.
Up. Today this parcel arrived for me from the sweetie shop of fabric stores.
Ali has very kindly sent me a Maxi Scrap Bag so that I can try out an idea I have - it's an idea which requires a sewing machine, but at least I can cut and prepare, and be ready to hit the ground running. Look at the contents:
Aren't they beautiful? What a great way of getting a little bit of lots of loveliness. It reminds me of my dad who spent his wartime sweetie ration on hundreds and thousands (coloured sprinkles) because obviously you got more of them in a bag! I find Liberty very hard to resist and charm squares and scraps are perfect for playing with.
I have to admit I have stashed some Very Berry Fabrics Liberty in the past which is so pretty that I haven't been able to do more than take it out and ponder, but these are some of the things I've actually made with it:
|Round bottom bag with Liberty detail|
|Reverse applique cushion - Liberty and blue jeans|
|Liberty origami brooch|
|Experiment using Liberty, linen and embroidery|
I'm looking forward to seeing if I can turn the idea in my head into a reality which does the fabric justice. Thank you Ali.
