Its always good to get to the end of the week and know you can have some much needed sewing time, I have been doing just that, This is the beginning of a new design featuring fig tree's new range Chestnut Street, its so beautiful, Usually when I get new fabric it sits there for ages and I just admire it while I think of ways to use it but as soon as this arrived I knew what I wanted to make.
I can't share too much as its for a magazine publication early next year. Of course I had to add some pretty stitcheries as I do love my garden and I love to sit of an evening and have some hand work I can work on.
I have a rather medium sized tub full of all my fig tree fabrics, thats where all my scraps come from to make my pumpkin runner from my last post, while I was digging in the looking for just the right fabric I found this sweet butter yellow print that was too nice to cut up so I made a little fabric basket, its sitting on my desk ready to fill with fabrics or other goodies.
During the week I started making this cute pear quilt, its a fig tree design and while I was playing in that tub of fig tree fabrics I decided this pattern was a good way to use up some of my favourite prints, next up is the leaves and stalks, I hope to share more of this with you next week,
I'm hosting a sewing day with my friends today so I really should turn off the computer and get ready, they will be here soon.
