making me smile

Making me smile today is the stack of freshly laundered wool fabric sitting patiently waiting for me to crank up the sewing machine.


Mmmm, mustard and grey making me beam.


The new Lotta book arrived at our local bookshop. Now that’s REALLY making me smile today as is the sun pouring in through my workroom window.


A couple of gorgeous designs caught my eye immediately.



And always making me smile, little Trumpet man asleep on vintage fabric French covered boxes. Now there’s a kitten with taste!


And now, I have a date with my sewing machine so until next time…

    Your energy level together with your innovation is so productive and impressive, I wonder if Trumpet in his slumber appreciates the tallent around him. HE is gorgeous.

  8. I love the Lotta book too. I just need to find time to make something. Are we going to be able to buy one of your felt flowers? I adore my Agnes Coy corsage Tanya gave me but feel it might be time for a new one 😉

  9. Smashing comment Donna – thank you! Actually, I’m working on an Etsy Shop at the moment and hope to open it in a few weeks so the felt flower brooches will be available then
