Independent ..........


Tuesday - a bit of a scarf workshop with friends - Awesome fun and a new scarf featuring some Aunty Cookie, some Greenolive designs , some Pippijoe and some left over printed text from the Johnny Depp scarf of last year.



Wednesday - sewing day with some other friends, more great fun and the fronts- only of two cushion covers. Gorgeous natural linen with pieces of Sumor by the spunkiest of all bubbles the Ink and spindle team.
and this little sweetie is Nan and she loves to play nurses
She may not be the answer to swine flu.....
but she's willing to give it a shot !

  1. Nan is just too cute and perfect for what ails us... and love the scarf. Been thinking of making one myself eventually - interesting fabrics... and love the flower - so textural. And the skirt too... you have been very busy!

  20. Love the colours on the scarves, really nice to do sewing with friends and such a sweet nurse, i would not mind getting swine flu if she was administering the shots.
    What a productive day, thanks for sharing

  21. I adore the scarf! *want want want* I have such a huge thing for words, books, paintings on book, fabric with words on (most of which I cannot afford *is poor and saving up for some Aunty Cookie fabric*)

    Nan is adorable and I could have used her help this last week as the Boy has had the flu, its undecided if it was pork flu or not.

    and the cushion covers are lovely too!

    ReplyDelete
  38. You and your eye charts! LOL. I love the cushion covers, and Nan is adorable - did you make her bag, too?? Your accessories are the best. That bag might rival the bunny slippers. :>}

  45. I love (with big L) your Nan. super.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Spooky. I have been planning a scarf eerily similar to yours using fabric from the greenolive textiles "bits & pieces pack" I bought at the stitches and crafts show. But as usual, I'm stuck at the planning stage. It's wildly impressive how much you get finished. And all so good! PS: I love that eye chart fabric you've used. Where did you get it?

Hellloooooo !!!!
