C'est FIni!

Finally finished the custom made quilt for Julie.
It has taken me a while due to the many other projects on the go, but I am very happy with the result. It was a lot of fun playing around with different shapes and stitches. I especially love the fat little mouton below made from french knots.

I also embroidered (with machine) both her name and birth date on the quilt. If you look closely, you can see ruffles, buttons and collars from all the various baby clothes I used. Something Julie will now have forever.

Houses, houses everywhere

A little tote made from recycled jeans and maison fabric. I really do love this fabric and have started sewing a whole ensemble...bag, crayon roll, make-up bag, pencil case...the list goes on and on...

And for something's my early spring tissue cover with a petit papillion (butterfly).
Perfect for traveling...esp. when I return back to Toronto...I heard that there is snow there now...EEEKS! I have been spoiled with this South of France sun.

Sew, Sew Tired....

Well what can I say? Last week was CrAzY!!! I was ill, we had a flood in our bedroom and our Christmas party was cancelled (thank goodness).
So back to normal right?
What's normal?
You mean sewing everyday for 9 hours? Eeks!
I have been so busy with Christmas orders for other people, I don't even know what I want for Christmas. What should I ask Santa for? Perhaps he could lend me some of his elves? I could pay them with cookies and milk...any takers?

Anywhooo, I thought I would post some of the other things I have been working on. I have had many requests for the personalized pencil crayon rolls so here are a few...
I have also made a couple fo Maquillage (Make-up) Bags for Saya and my etsy store. Perfect for storing all your feminine trinkets. Well back to the grind...again...cookies...milk...anyone?
