I have been on annual leave from work this week so in between catching up with friends, organising play dates for Miss M and housework, I have had quite a bit of time to do some sewing, which I have enjoyed thoroughly!
A little apron which I decorated with some appliqué as part of a birthday present for my little niece who will be 3 years old this weekend.
Appliqué again, this time an initialed tote bag for another niece who will be having her ninth birthday this weekend.
Miss M is off to another birthday party on Sunday (honestly that girl has such a better social life than I do!) and I appliquéd a cupcake onto a little pink tote bag as part of the birthday girl's gift.
Finally, two little lavender hearts which I made for my sister in law for her birthday next week. All these birthdays! I also finished some cushions I was making for a friend and will show these soon. I am now having a little break from sewing and have turned my attention to some crochet in some lovely spring colours... Oh and I found this little Rob Ryan card in a drawer and decided it just had to be put in a frame, and I now have it hanging in the hall. I just love Rob Ryan's work, it's so beautiful.
Hope everyone has a great weekend, I am very much looking forward to a girls night out on Saturday and probably a lazy day on Sunday...!
