Summer scraps Patch work


This is Maisie I hope your all ok! I've been in France on a school trip. It was so fun and that's why we couldn't post! This week I've been busy making a patchwork beanbag, it's not finished yet! All the materials I've used are scraps and left-overs from other projects. My mum is very pleased to get rid of some!

We went to our local sewing and knitting shop yesterday. There was a sale on so we were in there for ages! Olivia was looking mostly at the knitting and I was looking mostly at the sewing, we were in heaven!

Have a great week!

Home is where the heart cushion is!


I've got tons of new stuff to put on this blog post, as I've been away for the past week on a school trip to France and have got up to lots of stuff since I've got back.

First thing is to show you my cushion. While I was away my mum was busy sewing up my cushion which I  had finished knitting, but had not yet sewn up, and when I got back it was a really lovely surprise to find it finished and ready to snuggle! It used the nicest Rowan wool and is incredibly
soft. The finished result will be on this post, but the start of it is on my first post if you want to check that out. 

While I was away on my school trip in France, I went to a market in Dieppe which had the best sewing stool. I did not buy any of the beautiful fabric as it would not have fitted in my suitcase, but could not resist getting something, so bought some lovely lace for two euros! Really good quality and tons of
it there.

Happy crafting!

The Queen Coming To Town

We've been busy with jubilee celebrations! I made lots and lots of bunting because my grandma was having a party. Everyone kept saying what lovely bunting it was and they were very surprised that I made it.

For our next project grandma has asked us to make some cushions for her bench. We've got to make 10(that's quite a lot.) Come back soon to see how we get on!

Hope you have  a lovely jubilee so far, and a lovely bank holiday! And hope you don't have too much rain!!          From Maisie xxx
