I am so happy to be sewing again. I love it! Always have, always will. I hadn't in about two years, so the other day I hauled it out, wiped off the dust and made the little bag's you see in the previous post. (There is a give-way for one by the way,see the post)Then I had so much fabric left over-which is from Biggie Best here in South Africa by the way, a few asked. And a few pieces I picked up at a vintage shop.
So I made myself and a best friend each a vintage-style apron. Mine is a bit more playful than hers. I am thinking of making some more...but what would I do with them???
Would love to do a vintage-apron swop maybe.
I love roses and lace and pockets on apron's and I would need to see a photo of it first, so if you are interested leave me a comment here or send me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org with a photo of the apron you want to swop. The one I will swop will look similar to these.
Then I had a bit of time before fetching the kids from school,and I had a thought about the last cabinet of curiosites challenge that Kari hosted "Destination and reflection" to which she said and I quote: "So for this week, think about some things that are unfinished in your life. Is there something that you could complete that would give you a burst of energy to start that project that you've been thinking about?" so I got hold of a framed mirror I have had for ages but it has always irritated me as it is so boring and did a bit of decoupage on it with some serviettes that Kari sent me.
I rather like the outcome!
With that it did give me a new burst of energy so much so I went running off to the craft shop this morning and got some coasters to decoupage!
And lastly just a page I did in my art journal...
