"It's a Beautiful Day"

Singing along to U2 in my head....

But what a beautiful day it has been!! The sun shining with very little humidity. One could not ask for more (well ok, maybe a swimming pool). I got loads done around Maison Rouge, felt very productive indeed. One failure though I must tell you about in case you have any input. I printed some graphics onto iron on's for dark fabric, then ironed it on to a bit of leather to make a patch for my hat. For some reason the colour didn't transfer, only the cut out. Glad it was just a scrap I tried it on!

This is a sample of some lavender bags I am making for my etsy shop. They smell totally fab. I am actually sewing the bags myself, none of that bought stuff here..hehe. The fabric is the most wonderful vintage muslin that had been tea dyed.
Some tea towels I have been working on...

Was a bit too shady when I took these pics as you can tell. 
Anyway, new items to go into my store soon..fun times.


  1. Oh my goodness, I think I'm going to have to put one of those lavender bags on my "must buy" list!

  2. All your creations are fabulous! I especially love the lavender bags, yumm!

    I've worked a bit with transfers but never had the problem before although I know they can be a bit tricky.


I would love to hear from you!
