I was so excited today to receive my apron and tea towel from the Sassy Apron Sawp. Made from my favourite pattern, in my favourite colour (also revesable) and from the lovely person who introduced me to the land of Blogging and the Sassy Apron Swap. Thank you sooooo much. It is absolutley beautiful and just perfect.
A new found passion
Enjoy my journey of exploring the world of sewing through the making of bags and quilts.

Here it is, my first apron. A reversable one! Just loved the pattern, however, started to panic when I read the instructions as there were a couple of requirements I hadn't tackled before. Put off making it for several weeks, then took the plunge and was very pleased with how it turned out. I look fwd to sending it this week.

When I walked into my office this morning I saw this gorgeous gift box on my desk. Attached was a card with the most encouraging words. Words that warm the soul. Here are the contents of the box. I can't wait to create this delightful bag. How adorable is the fabric. Thank you xoxox
I raced in the door after getting home tonight, scanned the kitchen bench, then the table, nothing. I looked to my husband to see if he was going to give me a hint that a parcel might have arrived, no hint, so ran straight for the compter room and there, sitting in front of my computer.... was a parcel. Yes!!! look what was inside. How lovely do these fabrics look altogether. I have a qulit pattern in mind, however, will think carefully before committing to a final project. Sooo exciting!!

This cute bag is a Madison Bag Pattern which, I reduce to 70%. I found the full scale version a little too big, but this version just right! Still struggling with getting the Handle's just perfect, however, I will continue to practise with other fabric. My 18 year old niece by marriage, just loved this style so I made her one in a vintage floral. Her friends loved it and have asked me to sell them one. Not sure if I am happy enough with them yet to sell though!!
