Skyscrapers and String



Sewing And More Sewing!

Hello everyone!

I hope you’re enjoying the weekend so far!

I swam some more yesterday and had a long walk too so today I decided to crack on with some crafting and stay home!

Here you can see my cat relaxing, whilst I was pricking my fingers, cutting, trimming and using pinking shears.

Who invented those? Aren’t they wonderful!

I bought some fat quarters yesterday as I am obsessed with a bit of patchwork I did when I was small, which involved making hexagon shapes you sewed by hand.

Here you can see a vintage quilt made using this technique:

Thinking that I would quickly finish my Daisy Purse, then crack on with the hexagons, I decided to start that first. I sewed the hems of Jon’s new Kryptek Typhoon trousers yesterday and was keen to do some more…

Here you can see my purse and the lining I carefully made to go in it:

I am not sure if I’ll get it all done but it’s fun!

  1. Where can I get the pattern for the soft, lovely kitty? Does it come with the optional purring and nuzzling feature? Ha, ha!

      Mine was unwanted and not well looked after when I got it! It now rules us with an Iron Paw!

      • Well, hell, when you look that good, you gotta be strict with The Humans or they’ll get the idea they’re in charge. We’ll have none of that. Now, go get that can opener!

    What a gorgeous purse, and cat too of course. I love your fabric stash. I got a load of new fabric pieces today, can’t wait to do something with them all. 😀

    The purse is the perfect image of summer, I really like the clasp and the neat sewing along the top. I wonder if its difficult to attach the lining?! Cx
