Hello, sorry for my absence from blog land recently. I've been slaving over a hot sewing machine and kept forgetting to stop and take some photos. Here's a quick look at what I've been up to for the last week or two.
These cute little lavender bags were made from my stash of vintage felted wool. I'll probably tie them into bundles with some ribbon or lace.
Handy tote bags made from some of the pile of Laura Ashley fabric I've had for ages. (There's 2 or 3 in each pattern). They still need the corners squared off but I needed a break from sewing for a while!
Next on the list is making some candles in the Bonne Maman jars that are too nice to throw away. If that works OK I might try some in the dinky little vintage flower pots I've rounded up from the garden. Just waiting for the wax and stuff to arrive.
Another reason for not visiting your blogs as much is our faulty phone line. It hasn't been working for weeks and using the internet is often like watching paint dry! Hubby had endless discussions with Sky and BT, going round in circles and they reckon that as they have to get permission to put traffic lights in our lane and dig up the road, it can't be done 'till December! Sky even said that he couldn't complain as they don't have a complaints department.
You have to laugh or you'd cry!!
