Speaking of birthday gifts, my internet friend Yvonne treated me to two books from my wishlist, which was a wonderful surprise! She is the best ever! I’ll take some pictures of the Vintage Fabric book so you can get a look inside, Yvonne!
I spent Saturday at Summer’s Past Farms for Sweet Pea Day. It’s been so chilly the last few weeks that the sweet peas were not very big and there were not many blossoms. So I didn’t get to cut a bouquet, but I did come home with these little pretties:
How could I not?
I also did a bit of crafting, inspired by one of my Japanese craft books:
I can’t find my zipper foot, so I had to stitch the zipper in by hand. It seems to have worked out okay. This was an easy little pouch, and I think there are lots of different ways to make it, with applique’s or beading or quilting, so you could have lots of different looks. I will definitely make more.
I like blue!
