good morning

yes i know ive been rather quiet, but i have just started the summer market,where by i work 3 nights a week selling on my market stall to tourists and locals

i have however managed to finish a few little pieces in between
but i warn you i may only post once a fortnight until the beginning of september
this is when the market will finish for another year
the good thing about this market is you get to meet lots of interesting like minded people
who actually love what you do
anyways enough blabbing on or i wont actually want to do any sewing today
and its soooo hot that i may just have to take an hour out to visit the pool, lol
my first W I P finished was this wedding lap quilt
sorry only took one pic of this will get more laters

i then tried my hand at rag quilting and at first i didnt like it, but after i washed it to fluff it up a bit i kinda of really do like it now , he he he

next up i made two more of the little notepad sets as these are selling really well with the spanish so already im running out of them, the only problem is now the shop where i was getting the little dress notepads from say they cannot get any more, ooooh nooooo, what to do now big problem, have to probably spend a whole day trying to source them somewhere else miles away, any ways i think i will leave the new photo album for tomorrows post, please come again soon, bye bye x

crazy cushion

today i only have another little cushion cover for you
its just one of those days where to be honest i cant be bothered to do anythin
so im just browsing other blogs
saying that i did mop floors earlier so i have done something productive, lol
i think its because hubby has day off and when hes home i cant get into the rythm of sewing
i just want to be lazy he he he

YEY just finished 2 works in progress and have now caught up with myself and that feels good

the first one is the BORO inspired lap quilt i told you about a while ago, it was going sooo slow
but yesterday i sat there all day just to finish it, i even hand stitched the binding to the edge, which let me tell you was not easy
my fingers hurt badly when i finished it
but im really pleased with the look of it, well worth the wait
it measures in at approx 48 in x 54 in
and noooo i did not back it as i like to be able to see the stitches on both sides ,lol

and for my second item i finished a beautiful cathedral window cushion cover it measures in at 40cm x 40cm, and the front is totally hand sewn, it is in lilac and white squares with heart windows, and i i have stitched little flowers at random , hope you like it, both will be in etsy shop laters, the link of which is at bottom of page

hope you all have a fabulous day, im now off to finish another cushion cover, with a betty boop theme, just because i found the fabric hidden in my cupboard xxxxx

attention lapse again

ooops had another lapse of concentration yesterday, my wedding photo was staring at me and begging to be put into a frame, but what to do when you dont have one the right make one, it is entirely made from recycled fabric and wedding bits...of course..the windows are cut from marks tie, the bling at top from my tiara, the lace along bottom edge was my garter and bow at top was wrapped around my bouquet,
sorry its a bit blurry but you can get the idea,.......

before i had this lapse i did finish and add more squares to my quilt, it is now 6 squares by 6, i also spent a little bit of time on my boro inspired quilt which is growing quite rapidly
im loving the bits of red that ive added, this kinda works for me and makes it less boring in colour,....ok i think thats it for my to do some sewing before son gets home from school xxxxxxx
