The first signs of Spring and I can't help wanting to plant something!
Here is a hyacinth in bloom, on the kitchen window ledge, (birdfeeders in background)
On the fabric side of things....
I went for a wander round the charity shops last week, and my eyes quickly spotted some lovely red roses, and with the wave of my magic wand ( well sewing machine), they were turned into this...
A pretty retro style tote bag for Spring and Summer, with grass green lining.
I also found a rather splendid teatowel, a holiday memory from Devon, plus a blue floral cotton skirt, that combined with bits of this and that, eg ribbon and rik rak now have an alternative life style as aprons ...
One with a red frill,
and the other with ribbon
Finally I also added a little what not in a hoop to remind me of what I should be doing! Which is why I hope you will take a look at lots of fine makes over at Handmade Monday http://handmadeharbour.blogspot.co.uk/
Hope you keep warm, and thankyou for all your comments. It's good to know my little blog is being read.
