End of week one

I have survived my first  3 day week  with Miss X ,and we had more smiles than tears,and many messy moments.

Wilson will need therapy as her finger has been in his nose several times a day, but they are the best of friends.
We have looked at  the birds  through the window and luckily she is too young to realize that the dove we were watching was killed by the sparrow hawk that snatched it as we watched.
She will also have to get used to my habit of taking photos of anything that interests me,today another death a frog that did not quite manage to cross the road.

We have walked a lot with Wilson ,and although this buggy is great fun  to use ,if like today she falls asleep it looks very uncomfortable.
So I have a few days off to catch up with my art swaps and perhaps make a few more bags. As tired as I was last night I managed to make this one and I think it is my favourite so far.

I think it is the fabric which is once more Ikea and the fact that I designed it to go across the body.
I received my Owl   from the milliande swap

Now for a mystery , as I was hanging out my washing today this was in the basket and I have no idea where it came from. I did bring back a lot of fabrics from my Parents  house last week but they were all colours which have been washed and stored away. This is pure white and was still damp,I suppose if I am honest it must have come from their house  but how it survived being washed with bright colours and stay so white is a mystery.
It is so pretty and is a bag /cushion cover I guess I think I will try and make a lining for it.

Time To Sew

 

I managed to make  more bags over the weekend .

the photos should have been taken in natural light ,not in the evening on a very dull day.As well as these three I made two more of this design and then as usual I was bored.

So although I have several books with designs decided to do my own thing ,a much simpler and quicker design to make up.

I have not decided how to do the handles or even if I like this design at all.

Kalona is hosting an inchie twinchie box swap ,and as the sewing machine was out I decided to make up some samples.

this looks quite odd but in the flesh it is purple fleece layered with organza and  stitched with a free arm.

this is denim layered with green cotton and top stitched

and these were cut from a felted cashmere sweater.Spot the seagull which is printed on muslin,and stitched in place.

Although they may look as if they are different shapes ,each one is a perfect twinchie thanks once again to my Sizzix.

I also made up a few flowers
