what I've been up to (this one's for you Fran!)

Hello everyone, yes I'm still alive!  Had a few things on my mind and on my plate - you know how it goes.  But don't worry I've not been totally idle.

Firstly Mum, Aunty and I went to the craft show a couple of weeks ago.  Had a fab couple of hours and bought this lovely fabric panel which when cut up with a little border added will make great Christmas placemats.

I also managed to make up the bag and post off the prizes for the winners of my giveaway.  Hopefully they should be arriving in the next few days so here is a little look at the bag I made for first place winner Bonnie.  I hope she likes these colours as much as I do.

Kate Spain for moda has this great range of Christmas fabrics out including this beautiful panel of the 12 days of Christmas.  Backed it up the other day and voila - a cute wall hanging.

And lastly Aunty and I attended an awesome screen printing workshop last weekend hosted by the beautiful Ellie of red seed studio.  Ellie was so generous with her time, knowledge and supplies.  I chose this little design as it reminded my of a wine caraf.  The white tea towel is printed in a deep red colour (although it looks almost black here).


 And then I printed 4 pieces of this maroon hemp/linen with the same design in a dark grey/charcoal colour.  These will hopefully be making an appearance on our dinner table soon as placemats.  The course was really fun and we'll definately be trying some more printing in the future.  Ellie has just written the most beautiful post over at her blog.

Hi Bree,
The coasters have arrived. They are really lovely and all the family likes them. I've lost your email address but will let you know when I blog about them via a comment here - probably later in the week. Many thanks again.
