This week has been busy, busy, busy and sunny, sunny, sunny……finally!!
It was just me and Little O this weekend so we made the most of the lovely weather… going to the beach, paddling about and generally having fun.
I did manage to squeeze a little bit of sewing in though.
Look, here’s what happened to my Liberty fabrics…
They were supposed to be wonkier than this, but the wonk just wasn’t meant to be!
I LOVE this – the feel of the linen-y fabric, the flowery Liberty and the bright yellow centres. These stars are so much fun to make too and they look so cute….. I can see many more on the way. Even better I used a teeny tiny amount of my precious Liberty fabrics which leaves me with lots left.
So excited to start on the FMQ now, but as this will be my first attempt
some a lot of serious practice is needed me thinks!
As well as this I finished my City Sampler blocks…..
I must say I really love these colours, especially block 19. The pale blue is Kaffe Fassett shot cotton in ice blue. I nearly used it as the background for the little stars cushion, but I felt like those needed more weight and that I needed something more forgiving for my FMQ!
Aaaand further happy times…tomorrow I have a pile of fabrics on the way. The Village Haberdashery had a flash sale yesterday…50% off sale fabrics….that means some of them were £4 a metre, how amazing is that…things couldn’t get much better, I feel some clothing construction coming on!
