Miscellaneous musings

You would think being on summer holidays would give me more time to blog, not less, but the fun of house-hunting and packing is taking up a lot of time! At least once I am moved there will be opportunities for sewing useful house-related things 🙂

Last week I visited the Worcester Festival and saw the Embroiderers’ Guild exhibition which inspired me to have a go with my hand embroidery (sorry, iron is packed!). Can you identify the different types of penguins?

It has been a long time since I posted so, until my sewing space is up and running, here are some fabrics that have recently made their way into my stash.

Vintage fabrics I got for my birthday

More penguins!

Arrgghh me 'earties!

I think I am going to use some of the pirate fabric to applique onto some teeny baby clothes for my friends’ new baby boy, but any ideas what to do with the rest?
