Where does the time go to?

We have just come back from doing a show in Exeter and it was jolly cold. The show was good though and I added to my fabric stash. You would think with all the fabric I have that I wouldn't need any more but I am a sucker for Kona Bay fabric!

We did very well and now have to dye lots more fabric and make more packs ready for Malvern next month. I have several UFO's that I want to finish as well so a busy time is ahead of me.

Finally made a pattern with instructions for the crazy patchwork waistcoat and it proved very popular. I have now made several of these waistcoats and they are so easy to make and put together. 

Had classes at the Exeter show in wired ribbon flowers and they went very well. I made some decorative pieces which could be pinned to a bag or with the addition of a brooch pin they would look good on a lapel. 

This is a little bag I've been making to use up scraps of fabric. It looked really good with the addition of a flower!


Another couple of flowers to match the bag! 

 Different flowers; the one with the silver beads is a brooch.

  I'm doing classes on these again at Malvern  which will be good!  They are fun to do and very quick! 

I'm going to make some more of the little bags as they are done in just over an hour from start to finish!
