Well, cold and flu season is certainly here and I have had a lovely dose.
Still feeling yuk so have not got anything done in the last few days but last week I made a knitting bag for mum using her old knitting bag handles. I loved the bag that used to belong with these, it was a pale pink linen, so gorgeous and so vintage! It fell apart a few years ago and mum saved the handles, I snaffled them from her walk in robe when she was away in England and finally decided on this Heather Bailey fabric - I love Heather's fabrics and am particularly fond of this print. Mum loves her new bag so it was definately a good choice.
I also made these potholders for my best friend Cherie. I love the damask fabric I used on the larger holders, it is part of the Manzanita Collection from Joel Dewberry. This is the first lot of Joel's fabric I have ever bought and have to say it is wonderful to work with. He has a gorgeous new range out and I am loving the persimmon palette, it's so pretty! I will definately be buying more of his fabric ! Still need to finish a table runner and some cushions for Cherie so must get to work!
Lastly, I snapped this last night, it is my darling hubby, Mr Deekie Belle, with our beautiful grandbaby. I can't believe the bug is 3 months old, time really does fly!
