Has It Really Been That Long? .......

I can hardly believe it has been so long since I posted, apologies, but there has been a lot going on.


I am back to work again, after a few weeks break, broken my sewing machine again!, won a few giveaways, taken part in a summer swap, become a Secret Stitching Angel, been crafting like mad and working on something that I can't tell you about yet, but I am very excited about it, more about that later!.


As you may or may not know I belong to a very talented group of ladies Crows and Roses and we have great fun sharing and enjoying each others talents in a seasonal swap. I can't tell you how excited, privileged and totally overwhelmed I was to receive my swap from Sharon. Sharon is a very talented painter and a lovely friend too. Just feast your eyes on these gorgeous pictures which I now have hanging on my wall for everyone to admire - thank you so much Sharon. Sharon also sells on Not on the High Street go check out her shop its really fab!





In return I made Sharon a reversible bag in Tanya Whelan's Barefoot Roses (Sharon has a passion for roses so I thought this fabric range would suit her down to the ground) the pattern also by Tanya Whelan called Ava. I also tried something a little different for me and made Sharon a glass tile pendant with a rose theme, of course!







I was also lucky enough to win a giveaway from Glam Glass Gifts thank you so much I love everything.

I love the Ava bag ... I don't think I'd apprecaited how pretty that is. I like Tanya Whelans rosie fabrics. What will we all do now that she seems to have walked away from roses, pretty polka dots and flowers. Her new range seems almost geometric....
