Keep Calm and Craft On

Available from Etsy here

That's my mantra at the moment!!! There's so much to be done over the next few weeks - projects to finish, prep for FQ Retreat and not to mention looking after the Littlies with move-up days/introductions and paper-work and trying to plan some activities for the summer. Hectic I tell you!

So, what can I show you? There's a long over-due thank you to Hadley for my fabulous FQ Retreat name tag: I felt the luckiest girl alive when this dropped through my door.....perfect 1/2" Liberty Squares on the back and a lovely spool on the front. I think my goofy smile says it all!


I also finished my swap name tag and Emily received it today - it was inspired by the Bangles quilt in Sarah Fielke's Hand Quilted with Love and the selvedge was added just because I love the La Dee Da on it!!!!

I've been fitting in some crochet here and there for the FQ swap and have started working on some hanging hearts and am also planning a couple of other things as well.

Besides this I've been working away on another Laurel - this time a dress with an invisible zipper! - which I'm hoping to share with you in a few days, it's been good fun, just need to do some faffing (a technical term!) with the side seams!


I'd better head off - got a bag to work on!


Hope you're all having a fun day,

"Keep calm and craft on" sounds a good life maxim to me! What a lovely array of things you have here - very yummy indeed! E x

You've just scared me.....I suppose I'd best make a list of things to do before FQR. Another bag? Another Laurel? Goodness you are busy, sarah x

Oh you're teasing! That invisible zip is so invisible - quite jealous. I need practice. And the mystery bag with the liberty, I'm dying to see it!
