Fresh sewing day

May was all about the small things for me.  Lots of bags, purses and the inevitable Ipad and Kindle cases that I seem to sew every month.

I have been messing with Picmonkey's new collage maker to show my May makes, I love this programme!



My favourite makes of the month are the Network cases, it killed me giving those away!



Now June is going to be about Hand stitching as I try and get over my fear of it by taking the Stitched in Colour course.  You never know, I might even decide I like sewing my own binding down ;-)

Linking up with Lynne's Fresh sewing day...



Lily's Quilts


So in a mild panic I have to go clean the house, pack two suitcases and my retreat stuff.  I have the Glee soundtracks on Itunes, I am going to bop my way through it all.

  This afternoon will be dedicated to all things beauty as I get my toes polished and my unibrow tamed.  If you are going to the FQ retreat this weekend I will see you in the morning :)

  1. Kelly..this montage is so effective...makes mine look so lame. I am have just done a whole month of hand-quilting and finished it with hand binding. It is soothing but very time consuming. So enjoy your retreat this weekend. I hopped over from Lily's Quilts and am pleased to find your blog.

  23. I never though one could be afraid of hand sewing ... I actually prefer it as I'm scared to mess up my projects by using the machine (though I'm getting better) - I like the colourfulness of your makes ..

  24. Best of luck on the hand sewing. Its like everything else in life the more you pratice it the better you will get at it. Love the collage too!

  25. Loved seeing some of the bags in person yesterday - if you make any more you might have to give them away (hint, hint) Hope the early start wasn't too much of a challenge this morning. D
