I know it has been ages since I last blogged... and there are plenty of reasons why but I won't bore you with them now. Thanks for staying connected and waiting me out!
I have become obsessed with patchwork and it is my new craft of choice! Here are a few things I have made recently (and now gifted so I can show you):
This is the finished product of the Stack of Critters stocking stitched for my friend Judith's second grandson, Torvald. I really like the backing fabric I got from a closing down fabric store a few months ago. It really pops.
This oriental silk bag is something I made for my sister's birthday. It has handy pockets and is easy to carry over your shoulder. I made myself one and use it all the time.
I have also made a few other things but they haven't been given yet, so you'll have to wait and see for those...
We recently also went on a 2 week European River Cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam and while there, I managed to locate little fabric stores in many of the towns. I now have a number of metres of fabric from the trip that I hope to make into a number of special things.
