First selection of fabrics for a sewn pouch set - for Nathalie whose artwork just takes my breathe away. I really love this light blue egg fabric, and the combination together with other fabrics looks fresh and clean. I'm hoping she likes it too (or if she doesn't she tells me quick!).
Second selection of fabrics - for Laurie. This is a little bit of a departure for me, because it's using sugary colours, but the fabrics are really sweet summery ones which have quite varied patterns and textures and I'm loving the combination anyway. So this will be a texture based bag. The wool is handspun from Pluckyfluff which I got over a year ago and have been waiting for the right inspiration to make something with. I think Laurie is a deserving recipient of the wool, and I'll divulge more about the materials when I get further into it.
I have approximately 1.5 hours before the boys return home, and having been in back to back meetings all day since 9, I'm enjoying some quiet sewing time at home. Oh the things I can get done in 1.5 hours...(cleaning the house, cooking dinner and buying more cat food are not part of the plan).
