THIS AND THAT...


Just a quick post this morning as I want to get outside and enjoy the lovely sunshine.

This is the apron I made for Megan my Canadian swap partner in the Apron swap 2010..


Megan said that she liked things bright and retro so I chose these great fabrics from Amy Butlers LOVE range..
The pattern is taken from Anna Maria Horner's - Seams to me, book, which I seem to have made a lot of things from just lately..



This was another one of those things which I made and really did not want to give away (awful I know !), but I am sure I will eventually make one for myself..


I made this bag as a thank you present for the friend who took Freya and Finn away for the long weekend, I made her husband some map covered 3D letters spelling his name, but stupidly forgot to photo them !


Lastly, pump bags, I have had a run of orders for these of late from parents of Hebe's nursery friends who will be starting school in September....



The parents were told at the new parents evening last week that the children actually need two pump bags, one for PE kit and one for outdoor clothing, wellies, hat and gloves etc, so I have just had a flood of second orders for extra pump bags.. so I have plenty to keep me busy !

  3. I'm not surprised you wanted to keep that apron its lovely, as are all your other makes. I very rarely seem to make stuff for myself either. Its usually for swaps and presents. Have a lovely day in the sun. xxx

  4. Maria - I can see why you wanted to keep the apron! Perhaps you should treat yourself and set aside some time to make one for yourself? I must take a look at Seams To Me - it sounds like a good book. Juliex

  7. I really love that apron - I can see why you wanted to keep it. The apron I sent Virginia was nowhere near as good - I feel quite ashamed of it now
