A day by the sea side.

 Its been another exciting time for me seeing my latest design  in print and on the pages of the latest Patchwork and stitching magazine. 
 This big table runner is called A day at the sea side, inspired by our trips to the beach in summer. I'm not much of a swimmer so imagine me sitting in the deck chair with my stitching on my lap, watching my boys swim and play beach cricket.
 It was such a fun project and I loved sewing with the blue and aqua fabric fabrics, I think the range is called Seascape by Deb Strain.  It was beautifully quilted by my lovely friend Sarah from Patchworks plus. She's a clever girl.  Sarah also has a new web site, its set out so nice. Go and check it out, Sarah has some beautiful stock, including lots of Bonnie and Camille fabrics for all you Miss Kate lovers out there.
 As always the magazine do a beautiful job of photographing my designs,
 I was a very happy girl thats for sure.
 Another busy week ahead, back to work and the every day routine like most of us. I did stop today and pick some pretty snowbells from my garden, they are so sweet with their little green dots on each petal. They don't have much of a scent but I do like just admiring them.


Do you like my new header, my dear friend Tracee designed it for me, Gee I  have some clever friends don't I. Thankyou Tracee I love it.


Have a wonderful week and I hope you find some sewing time. Thanks for stopping by.
