FINALLY STARTED

Happy New year to all and may you have a healthy and prosperous one with lots of lovely sewing projects finished. Now Xmas and new year are over I finally got to do some of my blocks. They were easier than I thought they would be and I hope to catch up in a week or two.

 I just love this cute cup and saucer.


My cupcakes and they look good enough to eat.

My flower power jeans and I enjoyed sewing these as it bought back happy memories of my younger days.

Those jeans are so cute, great idea. We are all putting together some very nice china patterns, maybe Royal Daulton could take a few notes from our designs - haha. Tracee xx

I LOVE the jeans. I am just about to embroider the pockets on mime. The ones in the book were not ones I ever had on my jeans, but yours are. I think I might redesign my pockets too. The flowers are a perfect addition.
