Making a fabric hexagon patchwork in the hot sunshine this last weekend and day dreaming about my childhood
Crocheting round and round to make cotton face cleansing cloths for bath time (one for Alice one for me)
Blue skies and sunshine
Chilling on the roof of the De la Warr Pavilion whilst watching Alice playing some Indonesian drums in a workshop she attended
Stopping and smelling the roses
Meeting Higgins of Planet Penny fame xox What an absolute delight and treasure he is!
A little difficult to demand a still shot of him though, without Penny calling him for me :0) He truly is perfect in every way and I can see why he's such a hit on Penny's blog and facebook!
A Saturday morning trip to The Owl and Sewing Cat in Eastbourne to buy a pattern for a skirt I've had my eye on for some time now and indulge in some gorgeous cotton printed fabrics. Have a look at their website it's a delight to behold and soooooo easy to spend your cash in a flash :0)
They have such great workshops from beginner's through to the more experienced and are ever so popular. Even more exciting news is that the Owner of this gorgeous shop has taken a lease out on the shop next door and will be extending her shop into stocking a range of beautiful yarns for knitting and crochet. I can't wait !
My new Amy Butler Barcelona A-line skirt pattern I bought from the Owl and Sewing cat and used to make a skirt on Saturday from this pretty American cotton
Such a fun pattern and good quality fabric (I thought it may eve have a 1950's look about it ? or is it just me willing that?)
A perfect Saturday afternoon project for a hot and humid weekend (note the un-ironed skirt! I don't know about you but when I make myself something to wear i have zero patience to wait to wash, dry and iron it, it needs to be worn as soon as :)
When i was at University I sewed most of my own clothes as I always wanted to be a little different and have original fabrics. It was such fun sewing this easy peasy A-line skirt especially with the new over locker my mum very generously contributed to for my 40th birthday last year. What a blessed life I have.
Last but not least some of the rest of my weekend photographs.
Here's wishing you sunshine and happy days for the rest of the week ahead xox
