Sneak Peak #2

Today showing you my fall scarfs I am working on. I have had the linen for a long time and finally started making scarfs last week.
I love how some of the colours have a bit of a shimmer.

( You cant really see it really well in the photo , but the scarf has vintage beads at the bottom and LOVELY French vintage trim.)

These scarfs will work really well with a denim jacket or paired with linen pants.

I made this patchwork scarf last and think there is more to come in this idea.

Sneak Peak

The summer has been quite busy but I am so keen to show you a sneak peak of what I am working on in the studio. This year I am felting wool sweaters from Savers. This has given me so much pleasure. Not only to "hunt" for the right colour but also to reuse the sweaters and i love the texture these sweaters add to the basic beret.

I found such great buttons at Brimfield this year and plan to use almost all of them.

The other interesting thing is that the pieces that gets cut off from a sweater can turn into.....a hat!
Not sure if this will be how this hat will turn out but here is a hat in progress.

If you see the siding of my house, yes I took these pictures in 3 minutes while the kids were doing this:

Baby quilt and gifts

A while ago we were very lucky to have the arrival of a new baby girl , no not in our house but in a household that we know very well. So I had to send her a little quilt of her own. The quilt was a very last minute idea(when are they not) but so much fun to make.

 I kept it very simple and got all the fabric from Jo-Anne's . Front all cotton and back matching flannel. The quilting itself took a long time , but I am pleased with it.

Also for my friend Kate I made this plastic bag holder. Yes I know we are all suppose to be more green, but if you have kids with diapers you have some kind of plastic bag to dispose of it all. 
She phoned one day with a request and it was fun to remember my mother in law's one hanging miles away.( Maybe she needs a new one.) I love this fabric and now I need to make myself one too.
Oh and please notice my new labels!.
