A sewing bee

The postie bought more happy mail the other day in the form of my new monthly kit from Cocoa Daisy.

It's fabulous and in it was one paper from October Afternoon that looked like an old sewing pattern and i knew exactly what i was going to do with it.

TaDa

This The papers,ribbon,buttons,alphas and journalling tag were from my kit. The tape measure is from a digital kit by Lynn Grievson and the library card was a free download that i got from here I printed it onto paper that i had coloured with Hero Arts digital complete papers and increased the size.

And Susan in honour of our night of sewing i actually got out my machine and sewed on this LO.

I am really happy with how this LO turned out, exactly how i pictured it in my mind, now i only hope that my sashiko coffee table quilt turns out exactly how i imagine it.

And speaking of Susan I made her weetbix slice today (if you want the recipe go here) and there is not much left.

We have a long weekend here, so it's another sleep in tomorrow.

Have fun everyone.

That is the best LO I have ever seen - love all the little details - the tape measure, the dress form - very sweet. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

What a gorgeous LO Linda...love all the sewing bits and pieces on it. Looks like the kit was yummy!
Glad you tried the slice...if there's not much left, I'm guessing it was yummy too?
Enjoy your extra day off this weekend :)
