Aprons and Lots of Ideas

Isn't this week flying by...........!

Well, firstly my trip to the Stitch and Craft Show was a great day out
and I would recommend a visit next year - however ...........

It did set me back a few pennies ......................

Clarke & Clarke material for aprons I think or cushions, perhaps with,

Some Lazy May embroidery panels sewn into the middle !!

 These are fab iron on transfers ( bigger than the packet)
 I chose a heart, spiral wording and cupcakes,
check out the website for other designs.

We took part in an hour tutorial on applique and learnt couching
- I have that to still finish !

I even managedto fit in a brief trip to Ikea at Thurrock on the way..

The stripe material is for a floor cushion for "R" -
a bargain £4.99 for 3 metres, as was the red material!

Finally, I have been working on an apron
 for my sister in laws birthday
and then "R" thought she might like one
for the "help" she gives me in the kitchen!

I really pleased with them -
 I chickened out of using the Poppy Treffry free stitching
for the cupcakes (perhaps next time.)

Until next time.........
