So last Sunday I got out my sewing machine and got started on a little project. I guess that after dyeing all that fabric I really should have used my own hand-dyes, but I decided to use commercial fabrics instead. I have some wonderful fabrics in my stash that I have been saving for a long time and now it was time to use them. I also got out one of my favourite patchwork books: Rashida Coleman-Hale's I [heart] Patchwork. The projects in it are so simple and elegant, and I love the combination of neutral linen and colourful cottons. I made the cosmetics pouch on p. 34.
One side is purple
And the other side is red
However, I did used some of my hand-dyes for this thread-sketched card (the orange and green):
After I'd finished the pouch, card and a number of slightly tedious projects in the category 'Things-to-alter-or-mend', I got out my unfinished Alabama Chanin market bag project and did some hand sewing.
And you know what? The ice is leaving! Spring is on its way even up here in The North. Yoohoo!
Thanks for visiting and see you again soon! - Annika
