Folksy Friday

Good morrow. How are we all on this fine day? Well fine day is pushing it a little but it's not raining so I'm happy. Unfortunately I'm no closer to finding my sewing mojo. I'd allocated today to sewing and crafty goodness, and so far I've done the washing up, tidied the flat, and baked a loaf of bread. I suppose it's no help that my rotary cutter seems to have grown a pair of legs and sneaked away. Grrrr where has it got to?!

Anyway, I've been looking at my stash and thought I'd try and make myself some cushion covers with some of the fabrics. As it happens my flat seems to have acquired a rainbow colour scheme so I've got free rain really. We'll see what I come up with.

But for your viewing pleasure, here's my Folksy Friday cushion selection:

The Language of Love by Betsy Jarvis.

Hand printed lampost cushion by Joanna Corney.

Screen printed flora cushion by Astrid Weigel.

Rue de Champs-Elysees screen printed cushion by Do Come Again!

Custard Cream screen printed cushion by Nikki Made.

So I seem to be back on top of the blogging malarkey - happy days! I'm hoping to get a few books reviewed for you over the weekend. For once I don't have many plans so I might hermit away in my garden (gray concreted yard more like!) with some yarn and enjoy the sunshine. Fun times! :)

Wishlist Wednesday

Oh look, a second blog post in a week. Might I actually be keeping my promise? I think so!

Now today's Wishlist Wednesday is a bit different. This is something for my immediate wish list, rather than my grown up one. You see I seem to have lost my sewing mojo. Boo! So far this year I've been all about the knitting, I've crocheted myself a throw and more recently I've been bitten by the growing bug, but I look at my sewing machine and I don't get that thrill of excitement I usually do. Anyone else gone through uninspired spells like this?? I'd appreciate some tips if you've got any!

Anyways I'll leave you with these pretty pics - maybe if I stare at them long enough I'll leap forth light bulb moment style and fire up the machine. Fingers crossed! :)

Bad Blogger

I have officially become an atrocious blogger. Slap my wrists someone. I can but apologize. I do however think that I'm settling in to a bit of a routine so things should be getting back to normal in the blogosphere. I've got a few crafty goings on to share with you this week, but as I've spent the past couple of days pottering around the garden I'll leave you with some spring flowers to enjoy in the mean time.
