Projects - some for moi and some for you

What have I been up to recently...

Well, I have slowly gotten into baby mode and started to make a cover for the soon-to-be scrapbook for our new arrival. I used a light green linen and embroidered with purple thread:
"Baby, Belly & Us" with of course the year when she will be born...Yes you heard it hear "it's a girl".

I have also started collecting some different fabrics for a quilt I am going to make for our little bundle of joy to be. These two fabrics were the colour inspiration for the quilt. The alphabet fabric will be for the backing and the circus fabric cut into squares for the front.I am also going to play around with these colours and add them as different colour blocks. A very vintage inspired quilt.
Not only have I been busy for myself but I did add a couple of other things to the store. Two new bags. As seen in a previous post, I have a bundle of this orange 1960's bed sheet set, so I figured I would put it to good use.
Made from white crisp linen and the bed sheet with embroiderey and flower ribbon detailing, these two bags are perfect for holding books to read at the park
I also made one in a natural linen with the same detailing as the white bag.

These two totes can be found at my etsy store. More to come soon...

Oh these blasted spam thingys - make sure you don't open them Tanya, just delete straight away.

Now then, on to nicer things. That fabric for your quilt is gorgeous. I love the alphabet one as a backing and can just see the circus one mixing with the red - very retro. I am trying to make my eldest daughter a quilt but having never done one before it is a bit of a challenge!!! xx

Congratulations! Also nice to see you blogging again. It must be a big change for you moving to another country and being pregnant. Nice bag and good idea for the scrap book.
