Liberty love

 You may think I have gone a little pouch crazy and you are right. I have had a lovely time in my sewing room doing all sorts of wonderful things.  The pouch above is the first one I made, I loved how it came together and I especially love those pretty liberty fabrics.  Simple squares can be so effective don't you think?
 I showed you this one last week all in pieces ready to sew, so here it is. It has to be my favourite, I added some linen only because i never had enough liberty fabrics and i was thrilled with the end result,
 Of course I had to add a touch of embroidery to make it even more special. Can you see the little daisy the bird is holding in his beak. ?
 And my basket full of pretty Summer blooms. I love how this looks.
 I also made this bigger pouch with some little 4 1/2 inch star blocks and some linen, I quilted the linen in straight lines and it really gave the pouch some body.
 This is the back but I think I'll make it the front as I love the way the one little block sits in the middle,
This is the lining I used, Its an adorable print and just perfect for my project.


I am enjoying a long weekend, lots of sewing being done and new designs being created.

I hope you all have a wonderful week and find some sewing time.

Loving your projects, Leanne - and this long weekend. No sewing for me (just thinking about projects); I've been to a local quilt show twice - so many wonderful quilts to see - and to the botanical gardens near our house for the annual begonia festival. It's a very colourful weekend in Ballarat.
