It's a busy time and I haven't really had time to post. There is so much happening at once. First let me show you some finished work.
Being a lover of all things aprony I decided to participate in the Sassy Apron swap. The first theme was Spring.
I finally got my apron finished after being interrupted by several family illnesses and other dilemmas. I have had this gorgeous fabric for ages and always wanted to use it for an apron.
It makes me think of the green of new growth, the beautiful pink blossom trees and the blue, blue skies of Spring. Teamed with the teapots I think it's quite a cheerful little apron. I sent it off with some cute Easter cookie cutters.
I finally get to show you a bag I made for my gorgeous girlfriend Ros.
It's similar to the one I made my sister-in-law for Christmas except I used linen, rounded the bottom and added some yummy liberty and spots.
Happy belated Birthday my friend!!
And now I have some special news! This is a very exciting week and I have been madly sewing in preparation for the Stitches and Craft Show where I am joining several other craft bloggers on the Living Creatively stand.
I'm joining forces with the very lovely Cathy of Miss Marzie fame who works with me at Amitie every Tuesday sewing up gorgeous samples for the shop.
And why are we there.............?
Cathy and I have decided to get together and develop a range of simple sewing patterns for aprons, bags, children's clothes, and quilts. I know a few of you have discovered our venture via Miss Marzie but to all those that don't know.... look out for AUDREY and MAUDE.
You can come and see us and lots of other local crafty ladies demonstrating various craft activities. Cathy and I are also being interviewed about the concept of Audrey and Maude, craft blogging and how we met through an apron swap.
So if you are a local pop in and say hello.
