Disaster Strikes!

So having bought new fabric, bias tape, piping cord, ordering dress patterns, a rotary cutter, an invisible marker and wadding, I am now unable to make anything because my world has come crashing down around me.

My sewing machine broke!

I will be unable to share the wonders of my new hat with you due to the fact that it is still in pieces on my table and unable to be pieced together.

So now I shall be quilting like there is no tomorrow and this means lot of hand sewing. I'm thinking one massively frustrated colourful piece is the way forwards

Shorts, Fabric and looking forward

OK so one trip to buy fabric wasn't enough, I had to go again. I believe now that I am seriously addicted and I LOVE it!!!!

In other new I have been busy trying to create new things, on the list this time are Ear-warmers (just as the weather get warmer grrrr), tried to create a pair of shorts and a very cute bird, made out of scraps of material, which I will make into baby mobile when I get some more scraps. I think this involves more bag making, Oh what a shame :)

Fabric Hoard

I'm sorry people I got a little carried away! These are the latest editions to my fabric collection which seems to be rapidly growing. I am still undecided as to what to create with it all yet but at the moment I needed them because they are gorgeous. 

These are from a wonderful vintage stall I found in London. Maybe a patchwork blanket or a pillow?

These were far to gorgeous to resist, they are inspirational and I only wish I could have collected more from the collections, some are from Liberty and the others from Amy Butler. Can't wait to start making things from these!!!

Christmas Fabric bags

Just a few little bag I spun together with some left over Christmas fabric. I know it's a little late for people to use them this year but if your crazy as I am, and have started buying things in the sales for next years Christmas then you will understand.

I used these for stocking fillers this year filling them with chocolates and sweets for various different family members. but you can put pretty much anything in them. One of my friends uses hers to put her make-up in, another puts her keys and phone in so she can find them in her bag.

Next Project

So I just found this on one of my favorite sites at the moment and have to show you!

It is gorgeous and I think has to be the next thing on my list! However is may have to wait as the vintage squares just arrived for me to start my patchwork quilt! I am going to be a busy little beaver over the next few weeks.
