I did not sew to-day

It was such a sunny day I decided it was time to get outside and tidy the garden.The Snowdrops and Aconites are coming in to flower so spring is not far off.The whole time I was digging I had the song from a little fellow with a red breast.He can just be seen in the Silver Birch tree.I have seen more birds to-day than yesterday when I did the Big Bird count.I think we will have another frost to-night but hopefully tomorrow will be fine.More digging to be done.

Time for Tea

The tea cosies I made some time ago.I then decided to make the coasters followed by the place mats that I finished yesterday.The coaster are made by folding the fabric so that a glass stem can be twisted in to keep it in place on the glass foot.
As the weather is overcast to day I will loook at starting a girls quilt.The length of time it takes means as the Craft Fairs do not start until March I can get stock made befor hand.

Three bags I have made for the Sunflower Girls to see if thy would like any of them for there new site.
If not I will have them for sale in March when I start going to Craft Fairs again.I hope no one asks for the patters as I did not make one.That way thy are all exclusive.

New Year

I thought I had better start sewing again as I have a few things to do.I have been asked to make some Sunflower themed handbags for a new site starting at the end of the month.The sit is anything to do with SUNFLOWERS.I have already made some cushion covers for them.
I wish them luck.
