This week I'm lovin...

My lovely parcel of fabric from Buttonberry, look how beautifully it's wrapped!


Actually this arrived very promptly last week, I ordered on a Sunday evening and it arrived Tuesday morning, Fantastic!


Do you want to peek inside?



The colours are actually brighter than this.I also ordered these lovely fabrics, I'm trying to get ahead for next Christmas!







I nearly forgot this one!Beautiful muted colours.

I'm also really pleased with this patchwork that I've been making with my fabric scraps








I have been stitching them into little bags.

























I've loved making them but they take a while as the patches are handstitched.











I've also been doing a spot of painting.I boght this lovely mirror at the boot, I'm not keen on the gold so I'm painting it white.The trouble is I love it so much, I want to keep it but it has to go on my stall tommorrow.





I'm off to make oodles of bunting, again for my stall , see you soon

They all look fabulous. You have lots of patience for all that hand piecing of the hexagons! Worth it though.

Looks like Im not the only one who has been busy!
Love the little bags - I try and sew all my scraps together after I have done a project. Which leaves me with lots and lots of ptchwork samples! I think one day I will sew them all together and make a HUGE quilt!

It's great getting lovely parcels in the post - your patchwork bags are really cute! But how could you bear to part with that mirror?!

Good luck with the stall sweetie.
