Unfinished projects

Friday, June 17th, 2011

I am sure I am not alone on this one, I have a few unfinished projects.  Is it because they are difficult? No, they are suitable for beginners.  Lack of time?  I am afraid I can’t use that excuse this time.  Have I run out of fabric? Certainly not!  Then????? Well, I just got carried away and started too many things at the same time and I couldn’t finish them for today’s post.

Last night I started making a little purse with this fabric from Momo’s Just Wing It collection, and I loved it so much, than I thought of making a clutch too. So I started cutting fabric for that too.  Then I thought that a larger purse was going to be very useful to take with me for a weekend break, so then I started choosing fabric for that too.  When I realised it was a bit late and my eyes were tired, I decided to call it a day.

I really wish they were all finished and I could proudly show them here today, but you can be sure that I have learned from this lesson, so everytime I am tired, I just leave it for a moment or a day or two until I can trust my senses again.  The fabrics are so beautiful and the design of the pattern is so simple and nice that I don’t want to mess things up.

I leave you know with photos of unfinished projects and with a promise that next week you will see them all stitched together.

Have a lovely weekend, see you Sunday!

More than I expected

Yersterday I started my weekend a bit earlier and headed down to London to meet two lovely and very talented girls.  To my surprise, I didn’t only spent a great afternoon in Central London looking around fabric shops and eating cake with Margarida and Vānia but also they gave me this sweet little bag:

If you haven’t met them, I’d strongly suggest you visit their blog for lots of handmade inspiration, drawings, baking, and all about those little things in life that make you smile.

Enjoy the weekend xx
