Sew/Blog Sabbatical return
It all started a few days ago when I spotted the Faith Hope and Charity Shopping fabulous 2012 Jubilee Special swap on my blog roll, my mind wandered and for the first time I felt compelled to write a comment. I wanted to join in, I really wanted to get involved. So I emailed Lakota- when I heard that I had been chosen to be in the swap, I was delighted, and not only that I have a fantastic swap partner Scarlett from scarlett loves elvis blog. Scarlett has the most amazing retro, kitsch up cycle blog, with great style and story's.
The second thing happened a few days ago. My Daughter asked me to sew a fabric bag for our beautiful cat Poppy first birthday- to put all her presents in. Out come the the sewing fisherman's box and my box of fabric, when I spied this lovely British fabric I brought last year. I love the British landmark icons on the material and think they would make lovely buttons or badges.
Then I was inspired to sew DD a hair clip holder, using some beautiful vintage rose fabric and a candy pink ribbon. I filled the pouch with dried lavender and stuffing and using an old recyclable red button to hold it all together.
We all have reasons
to keep things whole.
Happy Blogging everyone!
