January?

 

What happened to January?

Where on earth did January go? I can’t believe it’s February this week already!

I’ve been quite a busy bee really. I finished the baby quilt which took up quite a lot of my time but looked good in the end.A square block baby's quilt made with blue toned cotton fabrics made by Tuftydawn Designs. I used two layers of thin batting and it gave the quilt a nice puffy look. The client was pleased with it too. I’ve invested in a patchwork ruler for future projects!20170117_120214

My vintage hunting continues and I’ve found a couple of good books on patchwork – one by Amy Butler.

I also couldn’t resist buying some funky 70s trays. I love the bright colours and simple style of the ‘acca’  trays by David Douglas.

Vintage Treasure

I bought a beautiful 1940’s girls party dress – I don’t have children but it was such a treasure I couldn’t leave it! I had a wonderful time taking lots of photographs of it for a photography project. Hopefully they give a really old fashioned feel to the dress.

Crafts classes continue on a Wednesday evening and it was good to see the group back again. Crocheting around cards and images this time- I’ll post when we’ve finished!
