Earlier today I had this exciting parcel of fabric arrive in the mail from Sarah Fielke.
This is Sarah's new fabric range
My job was to turn that pile on the left into a Social Tote.
I have had a couple of distractions (more on them in a minute) but here it is,
all ready to be posted back to Sarah tomorrow :o)
I must say that the colors in this range are simply beautiful and very pretty.
So that is my 7th Social Tote and that pattern still gets me every time.
No skipping ahead. I have to read the instructions just like it was my first time!
As for my distractions. First off was this little fella.
He flew into the window in my sewing room. A little stunned he hung around for a while. Took a walk around to the back door and had a chat with Lily. Lily tried to tell me that she wanted to keep him.
I think he is someones pet as I went outside and he came up to sit on my arm. Lovely bird. Hopefully he has found his way home and is safe now.
Next up wasn't really a distraction for me but it kept Lily busy which in turn allowed me more sewing time.
Declyn made a cake.
A rather impressive cake.
From scratch, no packet mixes here.
I'm thinking that I should "hand ball" the birthday cake making duties to Declyn.
Especially when he does this "just because".
Tasted delish :o)
