Unpacking the sewing machine.

I cant seem to stop starting projects.

I have been meaning to make a few little things for myself over the past few months but just haven't got around to doing them..

I finally found a pattern by Cloud 9 for a knitting needle roll here. It will be tackled before Christmas.

And I am making a few of these sewing kits that were in the Zakka Style  book.

Judith from Just Jude gave me some really lovely thick linen pieces last year and I have been stashing them away until I found the right project.
I'm also going to use some of my liberty fabric that I bought last year. 
I'm not a big fan of Liberty fabric....ok  shun me if you want. 
 I can here all the gasps and horrors that you are all saying. 
 I just don't get it.  I do like some of the silks but these are not really my favourite so I'm happy to cut them up and use them.  I'm not going to use a second contrasting printed fabric.
I need a little sewing kit for my knitting bag and another one for my hand sewing purse so am going to make three...(which so makes sense Erin...)  You never know I may need another one.

(three months have been and gone since writing this...and my little bundles are still the same)

Sewing machine was unpacked this week and my wee one let me have a little time to sew..
(I'm very happy today)

I hope to show something soon.

Happy sewing.



  1. Gasp - and the two teal prints are my favourite Lifestyle ones too!!

  2. I do not have a thing about Liberty either ,i like the linens though hope you get a little bit of sewing time soon not easy with a baby :)))))

  3. I'm not a fan of Liberty fabrics either. Saw them first hand at the K&S show last Saturday and loved the feel of them but not at all tempted to buy

  4. Hehe! I will have to shun you now Erin - tee hee - bit difficult though being in a bee together! But great use of the fabrics and you can always send them here!

  5. I don't care what you sew or with what fabric - I always love what you create and I'm thrilled that you and your machine will be joining us with freshly made pretties soon :)

  6. Some of the Liberty lawn fabrics are lovely but some of them are awful, and the Liberty lifestyle fabrics really don't do anything for me either. Your sewing kits will be lovely in those fabrics hope you manage to squeeze in more sewing time now that you have unpacked your machine.
