feeling springtime stitchy...
I happen to have a seasonal "stitchy" condition which is known to be contagious. So if you're a little squeamish with regards to compulsive stitching you may want to avert your eyes. It's true. Every year I am completely overcome with the need to sit and sew.
It strikes me just as soon as I catch a glimpse of those first bright beams of spring. There's nothing quite like buzzing around the studio in a fresh breeze as the screen door makes it's annual debut.
The shop is chock-full of gorgeous fabrics. A full spectrum of thread, buttons, pins and zippers greets me everyday. My sewing machines are polished and prepped. I've been ultra busy all winter with wool, wool, wool. I'm ready to stitch. How about you?

I have already been sat at my brand new Babylock Aventura. I even used it to make prezzies for my grandchildren for Christmas. Right now I am mending a few things for a trip and sewing a few fashion items for said trip. Upon my return - a quilt is on the agenda. My first from scratch quilt. It won't be complicated and I might have to even us pre-cuts for the first one but look out world - Ann is about to quilt.

You have such a flair for writing my friend. I think you should be the writer. Your words are such an inspiration, your announcement of the arrival of our friend Spring is a delight. Your shop is a delicious desert of colour and wonderful textures. Wonderful job.

Your shop is like a candy store to me. I wish you were closer! I had some pretty fabric bought a few years ago at Liberty in London. It was calling to me. I also had been admiring certain aprons or pinafores I was seeing on pinterest - the cross over in the back shoulder straps type where there is no need to tie anything. It turned out well enough that I have decided to make a few more to gift to friends and family. So yes, I have been getting out the sewing machine. I also have been embroidering tea towels. By hand. In fact, some of the perle coton came from your shop! There is so much scope for creativity in these without them being too overwhelming a project. Especially as I still have a rug to finish for my niece's girls. All fun - and bonus, it's spring!

Everyday I try to find a little something that makes life interesting. A good book, a wagging dog, a cool breeze, tea with a friend.
Here are my field notes about making, discovering, and enjoying a simple, slow, handmade life.
Thanks so much for visiting. I appreciate your spending time with me.
