Necessary Clutch Wallet - Fancy Version

I just love this wallet/clutch! Such a pretty and easy to follow pattern from Emmaline Bags. This is the first one I made and my fancy clutch for when I go out ^^

You can read a bit more about it here from my first post about this pattern: Everyday Necessary Clutch

Love the interior! All the little card slots and pockets, it's perfect! Choose the fabric so I'd always get a little happy chock from the pink and the silver stars, which contrasts quite a  bit from the classy outside =)

Free Motion Quilting Practice - Borders

I've had to practice some more FMQ before I dared to start quilting the borders of my quilt.  It was so much fun to be doing feathers again! =D

Here I'm starting to be happy with the results, please excuse the "ugly fabric", I tend to try use up the non pretty ones for these things ^^

It was quite difficult to get back in the swing of things and it was more then a little wonky to start with ^^

Back to Quilting!

First I got my little stash in order and got my Ikea Benno DVD shelves up. I'm so happy to have my little rainbow back up! =D

Secondly I realised that I was terribly out of practice when it came to FMQing, so I brought out a test piece and played a little. It was embarrassing at first but I quickly got somewhat back in the swing of things. Sorry for the bad photo, it's late ^^

And I actually have been nibbling away at my totally psyched project! I love this new pattern I have in the works so much and I can't wait to share it with you all! =D

A Brand New Life!

My personal life has undergone some major changes this past year and due to these among other things, not much sewing has been possible for me sadly. Which has resulted in me banking a million and one ideas for new patterns and things I want to create, which is fantastic now that my life finally permits it!

My sewing machine is finally with me again and the sewing table arrived a few days ago now, it's an Ikea Malm. The lovely flowers are from my new love with whom I just celebrated 5 months with! <3 It's a really tiny (but adorable) one bedroom flat we live in now so the table is squeezed in between the kitchen counter and the sofa ^^

And yesterday I retrieved my Ikea Benno shelfs and I could finally unpack my fabrics! I'm so happy!! They will very soon been filled with a rainbow these FQ's and half yards that I now have refolded and sorted, I was so ridiculously happy to finally be playing with my fabrics again!

I just can't wait to start creating again! =D
