A blog hop kinda day
So today I get to tell you my story. I was tagged by the lovely Fee of Designs by Fee.
What are you working on right now?
Well its a secret magazine project so I can't give too much away but it involves pretty garden stitchery and summery fabrics.
Once I come up with a design I want to get it down on paper as soon as I can, Once I do the drawings then I choose my threads and fabrics, I always like my stitchery threads to match my fabrics. I can usually get a project finished in a couple of weeks, having to have a "real" job takes up alot of my day so I only grt to sew in the evenings during the week and sometimes in the morning. When I have a deadline my whole routine changes so I can fit in as much sewing time as possible.
Well I would have to say threads, its amazing how much we can all create something beautiful with just a few stitches of a pretty colour thread. Stitchery is my favourite craft.
I love to draw inspiration from my garden so I'm always taking photos of my flowers. Sometimes I'll just have a whole lot of garden drawings then I'll take a bit from each one and create a project.
With so many beautiful fabric ranges around these days how could you not be inspired to sew with them, I'm always thinking what projects I want to make next. I have a long list. Pinterest is a great source of inspiration. I waste lots of time browsing other boards and getting ideas. And visiting my friends blog is always inspring. I love seeing what other people are making.
Thats easy, its after dinner when I have cleaned up the kitchen and its time to sit on the sofa with a nice cup of tea and stitching on my lap.
Now I get to nominate 3 lovely ladies to join in this blog hop. I nominate Rose from Threadbare creations, Val Spiers and Helen Stubbings. If they would like to play along.
Thankyou for reading my story, have a wonderful day. xx
