Well, thought it was time I took tentative steps back into the world of blogging! Am in Australia with my lovely sister and her family for 7 and a bit weeks and savouring every precious moment. She has a little haven on the upper floor of her house where we've wiled away many a creative hour stitching companionably. Before I arrived she compiled a "to go" list and a "to do"list both of which we're working our way through, but the lists seem to grow ever longer and time is getting ever shorter. Thought I'd post a few of the sewing project pics here to get me up and running again in blogland. It's been delightfully relaxing to sew just for the sake of it with such great company, in such a lovely space.
First two photo's are of one of the projects Deb had pre-orgainsed for us... A 1950s style reversible apron, perhaps it will turn me into a domestic goddess like her!!



When I arrived she'd made some great slippers for me,(check out her blog to see them and her apron) here woollen, warm and cosy just the job, along with two beautiful fabric baskets. Cos she's the sharing type (phew) she gave me a masterclass in the construction of said baskets and I went into production big time!

We've got some printing planned for later this week so watch this space....

Hi Dot. Nice to hear from you and thanks for the comment. It looks like you are having fun. Hope it isn't too hot for you. We are enjoying beautiful sun shine here for a change. The dafs and primroses are out. It must be great for you to just be able to relax and enjoy yourself instead of going to work. look for ward to seeing all your bits and bobs when you return.

Great to see you back Dot and what a great 'come back' post. I love the apron and to have a revisable one is sooooo..... cool!
The slippers on your DD's blog look amazingly comfortable, what a talented family :-)
Enjoy the rest of your trip.
