liberty love

I've just had my place confirmed at the 2014 Alnmouth Arts Festival.

Last year I bought this gorgeous print of the Alnmouth Estuary, it makes me smile every time I look at it.

I've started production of a shoal of lavender fish

here they are waiting to be stuffed.

eventually they will be packed in sets of three. 
I have such fun choosing which ones should go together.

Amidst all the liberty love I found a few minutes to sew a liberty cushion for me. 
The kit was a Christmas present and it made the cutest little 12" cushion that brings a pop of spring colour to the sofa.

Christmas table runner

I took a break from lavender fish production

to sew a Christmas table runner,

using a moda charm pack.

these little wonky trees are addictive, there could be many more to come!

the great big stitched post card swap - by Do What you Love

I recently took part in "the great big stitched post card swap" organized by Do What You Love.
I took tiny scraps of liberty fabric, cut out little hears, and stitched them into a bouquet, tied with a ribbon, which ended with the word CELEBRATE, the theme of the swap.
I had a lot of fun creating my first ever stitched postcard, and received a beautiful card in return.
