what are you up to on this fine winter Sunday afternoon?
i've spent an hour or three in the shed
sabotaging re-purposing a kit!
way back in March i spent a day with lots of other like-minded fabric fondlers in Nundle. we were all there as guests of the hostess with the mostess, Kerry from Cottage on the Hill. the lady who tried to keep us under control and show us lots of special stuff was Annie from Hatched and Patched :). she had a tough job, but we were all thrilled to complete at least one of the projects she set us for the day. she was also selling some of her wares and i was lucky enough to part with some cash and come home with a kit/pattern for a scarf.
i have been mulling over whether to actually make the scarf or not, and this morning i had an 'almost' epiphany and decided that i really needed a bag rather than another scarf for winter, so i set to work with needle and thread.....and the reverse sewer that sits very close to me at all times!!
this tote bag was the result of some sewing, some very bad singing, some even worse whistling, a little cursing every so often, and several warm cuppas.......
the main fabrics are snuggly flannels, purchased from Kerry, and the appliques are done in scrumdillygorgeous wool dyed by Annie's husband. some of the fabrics were included in the kit.
oops... i will need to set this to publish in a day or so.....a couple of points of rain and a whole bunch of us lose internet service :(
will be back soon....until then, take care and be kind to each other
