Work Goings On.

I've been spending much more time at work (Make & Do) of late to fill in the gaps whilst our head honcho recovers (get well soon K x). I've therefore cast aside several of my planned projects and have been pretty slack with post writing but it occurred to me today that it might be fun to share a few snippets of things that we've been working on at the shop.

Three lovely delivery folk made my day by delivering this little load (always super exciting to receive the deliveries -like Christmas). Tomorrow I'll be finishing off some fat quarter bundles whilst pondering what to make with them all!

We're in the process of putting together the next window display at the moment so the ladies and I have all been playing around with themed projects... bet you can't guess what we're going for?!

My little project for today was a memo board with pockets and appliqué (a bit of a variation on our usual 'French' style with lovely ribbons). I built up the background pocket folds layer upon layer then added some little beach huts with bondaweb (our favourite!) and a tiny short zig-zag stitch.

To finish it off I added a little free motion quilting on the felt clouds and added a few buttons. Now it just needs a hanging loop and backing ready for the window! Once we have it all put together I'll share another picture or two (unfortunately the fluorescent lights aren't all too photo-friendly!). Can't wait to see how it all looks!
