Fabby shopping again...

Yes i have been fabby shiopping again, fabby for a cushion workshop next week, some for some bags i have to make, and the rest for a lap quilt or two i want to make

i can show you some of the bunting i have cut out ready for sewing, here's one finished, more to follow in gingham, and a girly pastel coloured one.

and i have aquired a little helper, lola, she decided she wanted to see what i was upto while piecing together this lap quilt, she would not get out of the way lol and kept attacking my foot on the sewing maching peddle, i have the scratches to prove it, think i need to wear my steelies while sewing lol

well back to it, just need to decide which to do first.

Something new...

Well i was busy while i was away with the girlies, i didn't play with paper as i should have been but took my sewing machine and this is what i came up with, realy enjoyed making these banners, more variations on the theme to follow.

i then had fun with the halloween bunting, one being snapped up before i had even cut up the fabric lol, there were two other girlie bunting strings but they were gone before i had chance to take photo's, but i have been fabric shopping so watch this space!

and what about this bird house, Cara had real fun decorating this and i think she has made rather a good job of it don't you? its gorgeous.
