It began for me on Friday when I hosted a bookmaking workshop with 5 lovely ladies at Starfish Studios. The day passed all too quickly (as they do), when there is sewing, chatting and a little sunshine involved!
The books samples for the day.
The space where the workshop was held is a functioning craft gallery/shop, and so having a hot iron on the go wouldn't work. Instead I brought a small selection of fabric with interfacing attached, to use for the appliqued book covers. This meant there was less room for individual creativity...however, even with the same fabric choices made (poor yellow fabric never got a look in!) there were still little differences added to make each book personal and unique.
Some still had a few little finishing touches to add, but aren't they all so lovely?
Thankyou ladies for a gorgeous day :)x
The weekend was spent dodging heavy rain showers, but Monday (May holiday) brought sunshine and a trip to the park......plus a gentle shove to take photos of the blossoms which have been blooming everywhere. I've been reminding myself all month to do this, before the beautiful blooms disappear......
I LOVE to see the blossoms.... every bit worth the streamy eyes, fuzzy head and runny nose they give me :)
This quirky looking explosion totally had me charmed...... no idea what the plant is .... massive bushes with large waxy leaves... if you know what it's called I'd love to hear.
So here's hoping the rest of May continues along the same vein...sunshine, sewing, relaxation and savouring the bounties. Hugs to you all xx
*ps. Just a wee reminder that tomorrow is the last day for the reduced price on my purse kits..... hop along over here if you are interested * Thankyou!!
