...to keep the shop full :-)
First off I so enjoy a good scrap busting project, my baskets are overflowing with little snippets I do not want to throw out. So I made this set of coasters. Aren't they fun?
I even managed to use up an odd piece of lace and a flower applique that never found a home. I'm definitely doing more of these!
Then I felt the need to sew something a little more zen, and made this sashiko tea towel.
You may remember I made a quite similar towel before and wasn't happy with the way the stitching showed up on the back. So I decided this time round I'd do the stitching on a separate piece of linen and stitch that to the towel so the backside is concealed. I'm quite pleased with this solution.
Ok, so I have been rather busy there's more!
You may have heard me rambling before about how I get words or sentences stuck in my head. I often hear people talk about how they think in images I believe I think in words...if that's at all possible I don't know!
Today this is what kept repeating in my head 'sit in a chair and be good now'...need I say more?
Pfff best go take my own advice and sit down for a minute ;-)
All of the above is listed in the shop along with more "you wash I'll dry" tea towels I sewed up over the weekend.
