I have finished the Liberty Churn Dash block with the Jenny of Elefantz stitching at the centre. It looks beautiful and now I just need to decide what sort of bag I am going to make it into. I think I want something more structured than the soft shoulder bag I made last year so will have to peruse the internet for ideas.
I am very pleased with the matching of the different elements on this block.
I want to use these lovely vintage lace bobbins as decoration on the top of the bag, I will probably just loop them round the handle.
I have also bought some lovely new Liberty fabric, this set is 5″ squares in two of my favourite designs, this is from ZuZus Crafts on Etsy.
This is Capel, I love the outline print on this design.
I think this one might be my favourite Liberty fabric ever, so ditsy and in my best colours. This is Phoebe.
I have finished stitching the headress for Kate so will get some pictures of that for you this weekend as we are doing a show at Ashby de la Zouche Castle. The weather is supposed to be very good so I am looking forward to another lovely event with my friends. This will be our first camping trip of the season so I am going to enjoy sitting round the campfire of an evening.
The frantic marking is still continuing so I have just got some very little works in progress for evenings, hemming a piece of linen to go with my new veil and a repeat of the last Jenny stitching that I did for a new pouch.
I have possibly got some time next weekend to get into the craft room so may have some more things to share with you then.
In the meantime have a lovely Bank Holiday weekend, thanks for visiting and see you soon.
One thought on “A bag in progress”
I’d forgotten it would be a Bank Holiday…
I do like that patchwork. It will be interesting to see what you do with it!
