Unseasonable Fabrics

Even though its the end of May the weather is awfully like March so I thought I would re visit Harris Tweed.
I peeped into my stash and found one hiding that I hadn't noticed before.
Don't you just love its tiny pattern in grey pink and cream?
I do.
I had just the right shade of velvet to go with it so got to work and made this little phone pouch..or whatever.

Then I made a green one with squares,

and another green one with circles

Then I turned the template the other way and made a wider shorter purse in tans, with my favourite colour combination, orange and blue.

I had some little trigger hooks so I stitched one on each, I don't know if that was a good idea but they can be cut off if not wanted.

all to send away to here.

The Henley Arts Trail

If you are in the Wargrave area at the weekend my goods will be at venue 13, Joanna Sinclair's studio. Click the link above to find out more.
Before an event like this I always underestimate how long the labelling and packing takes. I was sewing till midnight then packing almost all day today. The parcel tape ran out, The printer malfunctioned, I lost the address, my fineliner pen ran out...but eventually I got them on the Post Office scales and off.

My trip to Bodnant Gardens is off, but a trip to Norwich is ON!!
Hope the weather improves.

Now, I feel like a bad blogger. One of those blogger types I mentioned before who sucks up the comments and doesn't give anything back.
I have been so busy I just haven't had time to read my ever growing list. Every time I find a nice new blog or a new commenter I add it to my google reader list.
I now have 373 items to read
I am not equal to the task.

But I do enjoy it so.
