A winters project ….

Hi everyone

This past year has been a very busy one but as Winter draws in, so does the longer nights & thoughts turn to projects once again.

I have been keen to get back to the Gentlework of hand sewing again which is perfect for evenings at home.  I spent a day doing a Gentlework workshop learning some of the techniques that the lovely Christine of Gentlework uses to make her wonderful creations & have a lovely stash of fabrics too ….

I also follow the lovely Viv of Hensteeth who is local & does amazing hand crafts too. I spied some lovely printed outlines in her EtsyShop and a project immediately sprang to mind.

Earlier in the year I had bought some printed images but never got around to using them.


However,  in this pack, I saw two bunny outlines & knew that was going to be my next project.


We love our house rabbits but unfortunately lost our Fred bunny last year but still have a very spoilt Vivaldi house bunny at home.


Her items always arrive beautifully packaged in pockets sewn from book pages ….



I have some vintage tins & am keen to use these pretty outlines in a bunny inspired project.  Pop over & look at Viv of Hensteeth's beautiful work & Christine's amazing Gentlework.

My project will take some time but I am excited & motivated.

Do you have a project that you are working on? Are some projects just Winter projects?

Thanks for stopping by, I always enjoy your comments.

    1. Hi Lynda - Happy Thanksgiving to you too, hope it is a blessed time for you & yours.

      Retiring? How fabulous as that will give you time to do more of the things you love. I only work 4 days a week & I guard & cherish my day off - special time to just take stock of life & enjoy things I love.

      Thanks for your support x
