a little sewing time

Over the summer between picnics and day trips I managed to squeeze in a little sewing.


Travel: we celebrated my Mum's birthday in Paris, and the bon voyage passport cover was for her. The family organiser worked a treat, I had tickets, passports and info all neatly tucked inside.

Friends: the needlebook I made for the LMQG / Vancouver MQG christmas needlebook swap. A wonky house and tree for Amy's wonky Village, which I am in love with!

Quilts: Fabrics and prints I'm using in a quilt each for the girls. They both used fabric pens and drew on fabric which will be included in their quilt. Little Missy drew  her favourites - rainbow, bunnies, butterflies and sunshine. She kindly shared our ages too, I like hers, 6 (almost) but actually 5. I imagine this will be a wonderful reminder of being 5 when we look back in years to come.


I'm busy working on a new website and some new fabric designs at the moment. It's high time I took myself seriously and believed in myself a little more, it's very exciting to be working again though! I will be sharing some tutorials very soon, I have so many ideas, time to get on with them!

  8. I'm not sure why creatives always find it so hard to believe in themselves. We all believe in you Colette and look forward to seeing you go from strength to strength.
