Rained Off...

Hey Everyone...

Well so much for car booting! They were all rained off :( I would still have looked round in the rain but obviously no one else would.

So what do you do when it's a rainy Sunday? Go to IKEA! I bought myself some more cheap jars for the kitchen which I have decorated with my Cath Kidston labels and put all my baking ingredients in! Looks much more tidy and organised...



I also picked up some much needed frames for my folksy bits. Speaking of folksy - I've just added a new make here...


It's a scrabble ring (just happens to be my letter so I might keep this one) but I am making them to order on folksy. One of the frames is also for some scrabble art work which I will hopefully show you soon!

What else do you so on a rainy Sunday? Sew, of course! So once I got back I decided it was high time I finished some bunting for my niece's birthday next week. This is only my second ever attempt at bunting and I'm very proud. I used a zigzag stitch around the letters this time, which I think looks neater and more vintage, plus it meant I didn't need to fold and iron over edges on difficult letter shapes.





The ribbon along the top was more successful this time, but I really need to get myself some bias binding - I've never used it before - anyone know where I can get it?

I have lots more sewing to do for my folksy shop - I want to finish my felt hearts to make into brooches but I'm a bit drained from the bunting so I think it will have to wait for another day! Well at least I didn't waste the rainy day!
