It's been another one of those kinds of weeks where nothing very much has happened. This is fine with me, as I am very happy just pottering about at home. Being at home most of the week means there has been time for some sewing and I have been trying to get back into the bag making groove. This morning I finished a pleated tote, another free pattern from Artsy-Crafty Babe - made from a thrifted pillow case.
My success with the buttercup bag meant I was a lot more confident when it came to the box pleats, and I really like the way it turned out, although the print is not really my style. I've also been sewing lots of felty things. There was a PTA committee meeting on Wednesday, where we began discussing the summer fair, and that got me to thinking again about whether or not to try my luck and take a stall. I think I'm going to go for it, and have starting planning what I want to make. I'm inclined to think that smaller items will sell better than big - I'm thinking brooches, hanging ornaments, keyrings/bag charms, that kind of thing - and then maybe just have a few examples of bags so that I can make them to order, should anyone be interested.
I am also absolutely ITCHING to get cracking on some new quilts - the Georgina one and I really want to make another with my Prints Charming collection - but I am still awaiting the arrival of an order of white cotton from the states. I'm starting to get a little worried - the last batch of Prints Charming fabric that I showed was ordered just the day before I ordered the white - I just hope it hasn't got stuck in customs!
On Sunday we have the school's easter egg hunt - I'm on raffle duty so keep your fingers crossed for a sunny day for us!
Have a great weekend!
P.S. Next week it is my blog's 1st birthday, so make sure you stop by as there will, of course, be a giveaway!
