Happy New Year to you all, I hope you have had a wonderful start to 2015. I certainly have. I have had a week off work and I have absolutely loved every minute. Most of it has been spent in my sewing room. Lucky for me that I'm the only one on holidays, hubby and 2 of our boys have had to work so when I haven't been taking them to Coles and McDonalds I have been sewing. First finish or should I say last finish for 2014 was this pouch I made up last week, No pattern used, just my imagination and my favourite fabrics. I was thrilled how it turned out.
Using the green and dark blues from Bonnie and Camille's fabric ranges worked so well. Above is the front.
This is the back. Now even though I loved making this pouch in these colours I have enjoyed working with the prettier colours pictured below even more.
This is going to be the outside of my new sewing bag, The pattern is from Craftsy and its called Bionic Gear bag, If you do a google search your bound to come across it. Its very similar to the Sew together just a bot bigger and an extra inside pocket. I have loved making it.
This project has been dragged out of the cupboard again, I started this in 2010, how embarrassing I have only finished 1 1/2 blocks, So to spur me on I spent a few days sewing the blocks together and getting them ready for the stitching part. I thought I could spend a few nights a week working on one block at a time then by the end of the year I hope it might be finished.
I just need to make sure I stick with it.
I was very lucky and received some beautiful christmas gifts from my very talented friends. My stitching buddy Cathy made me this gorgeous wall hanging. From Tilda fabrics, oh its so pretty.
My friend Stephany who lives in Belgium made me this beautiful notebook cover, its made from felt. Steph also included some tilda goodies and Greengate tags, they are beautiful. Thanks Steph. I love them all.
Tracee from Quiltkitty loves life crocheted me this adorable cushion, so much work has gone into it. I love it, thanks Tracee. It looks lovely on my bed.
I've got 3 days left of holidays so I plan to make the most of them, I'm off to tidy my sewing room so I can start making a new mess.
Have a great day and I hope you find some sewing time.
