I have a few projects on the go at the moment. All of them are sewing projects (yeah I know get me....and I can't sew) After seeing some Cath Kidson fat quarters I was wondering what to make with them. So I decided to make a little pinny to wear when I bake. I didn't have a pattern so used an old pinny as a guide and thought the process through as I went. It's not perfect, I made a couple of mistakes along the way but now I know what to do next time . I really quite enjoyed it.
I wanted it to be reversible but co-ordinating so chose the strawberry and polka dot pattern.
The week started with a lovely Sunday at St Albans farmers market and a rummage at the retro emporium. I have a feeling it is called an antique emporium but it isn't really. Some of it is tut but you do find the odd gem and a lot of nostalgia.
Like this tea pot (or is it a coffee pot)....I'm sure my mum had this range of crockery. I really like the sixties and fifties patterns and designs and could of bought loads of goodies but alas Nigel has an aversion to second hand items. It does have that musty secondhand smell in there and I always feel I need to wash my hands afterwards but as long as you can give what ever you have bought a good scrub I don't mind.
|Zingy, citrus stripes...what a fabulous handbag but a bit too expensive for me.|
|Ooh, who thought Formica could be cool.|
After all that activity I am looking forward to a restful weekend, catching up on the chores, starting some new sewing projects and a bit of baking to road test the pinny.
