handy WIP


I have finished hand quilting my Liberty / Architextures cushion:


I used Aurifil wool 12wt in 8942 from a sample pack. It's so soft and works really well with the Liberty Tana Lawn.


So just need to make a back and get it sewn up.

I did some crafting with the kids and their friends yesterday after school. They made hand puppets. Here is Joan's version, I love her style!



I'm also working on a project with Simplicity patterns so stay tuned if you're interested in sewing patterns...
 there might be a special treat! :)

  7. I love the idea of juxtaposing modern Architexture fabric against the classic Liberty prints. The end result is genius.

  8. Liberty and Architextures works so well and loving the puppet. I used to spend ages as a kid making my own puppets and doing little plays with them. Sighs wistfully...
