Three story Saturday!

Three short stories for you this Saturday xx

Something different from me, I have done appliqué before but never an elephant! Super cute with the hearts floating up. Reclaimed cord for the coming winter, I just love this brown, upcycled vintage sheeting, with gorgeous autumn florals, for the lining and as usual some mixed matched buttons. A very sweet pinny, if I don’t say so myself xx

Today I am sending off this funky pinny. Loved making this one, mixing divine summer colours. I have called it – Last days of summer – the back is a groovy orange swirl and yellow kisses fabric. I especially loved the floral orange brown, I only have a small amount left and then that beautiful yellow floral, so happy. I am having fun with mixed media, ricrac, embroidered napkin, fabric and a button, always to neat for my liking, which looks lovely but one day my hands will do what my mind sees! Lastly the mixed matched buttons, one is vintage! I hope my little customer enjoys wearing this pinny as much as I did making it xx

Over the last two years since my Samuel left us, I have been crafting. Even before he left I started making felt flowers to give to those who were helping us in such a hard time, Cancer is cruel, treatment is hard on all family members, we were so lucky to have such a caring community Then one day I wanted something to wear for a vintage fair I was attending with my flowers – my first patchwork skirt was created! And a sewing spark was ignited. Sewing and crafting for me is the best grieving process, when I am creating everything is ok. My love for all things vintage has grown and I am so lucky to have found a handmade world and others who share my passion. Yesterday was a sad day, it marked the date Sam left us, I went gently on myself and created something for me I thank my little angel for leading me on this journey of creativity, I miss you more each day Sam, but am happy to be able to ease that pain with sewing and crochet. ☆彡
