More fabric obsession, oh dear!


While away, I fell in love with this bird fabric - it's just so unusual. Haven't a clue what I'll do with it, but it's lovely to have in my stash. Anybody seen it before? Actually,I was a bit naughty with my fabric addiction and also fell in love with a little bit more...


And more, but I've not photographed it all as I think I'd start to feel mighty guilty. I especially love the 1930s inspired print, second from right, and the Kaffe Fassett next to it. Yummy fabrics.

I've been packing up some orders for lovely Sew Happy customers. I always enjoy gift packing, but I haven't found a way to make it quick. These packets took 30 minutes. Do you have the same struggle to gift wrap your things?


I've also finally got around to photographing some of my newest makes, though when I say new, I've been working on various fish related goodies for the past year.

That's all for now. More soon!

Back from a summer break

Go on... dig in. It is as scrummy as it looks (if you like a good banana split of course, and I couldn't resist!)

I can't believe the summer has gone. We had a lot of fun, and I thought for my first post I'd just pop a selection of pictures up... we went kayaking:


and saw lots of fascinating wildlife including endless varieties of large birds:


and...


It was hot hot hot: we did this walk in 90 degrees, which I thought was impressive!


And we went the year this place opened:


It was all fabulous. I now have a lot of photos to sort through. That's the problem with digital cameras!


Much, much closer to home, in Dorset at the weekend:

I love summer and the many adventures it brings.
