Back in the Swing
Back in the swing of things this week, my polka dot fabric arrived which enabled me to finish the Afternoon Tea Bag, must admit have fallen in love with this one as so cool and fresh to look at.
A new venture
Have been thinking for some time to add a 'Craft room' section to my website making card toppers, embellishments, quilt blocks and more. This week saw the start of the quilt blocks. Made in a soft white Kona cotton, which is a beautiful fabric. Have stitched a 5" square round the design and allowed a 1/2" seam allowance, so far a lace doily:
and some Tea Cup blocks
A fellow quilter is going to do a bit of market research for me to see if these would popular or not. Not everyone has an embroidery machine or wants one (as not cheap) and felt this filled a gap in the market.
Craft stall makes
Fabric button earrings, with sterling silver posts, 11mm diameter.
I love lavender hearts and I know have been around a long time but as I am into vintage inspired items could not resist this new in the hoop design from Germany. They smell delicious filled with Provence lavender.
A mobile phone holder for myself, think will add these to my site and craft fairs but make them without the initial for the fairs and to order personalised on my website. They are just the right size for an iPhone or similar.
Think worn myself out with the making this week, off to have a chill and by the time this blog is published Wimbledon should be over.
