Red is Best! At least that's what I'm told...
Gemology Blocks... Swap in progress!

Liberty of London hand stitched love...

Good Morning! Yesterday was a nice 'home' day, the kids played together well, I worked on laundry on & off throughout the day - if you're in Ontario I'm sure you feel my pain with "time of use" rates and do lots of laundry on the weekend as well!
In between laundry I played in my happy space! I decided to dig into my sacred Liberty of London scraps to make a few more pouches after the last one I made sold so very quickly! I pulled these pretty scraps out, pressed them and cut them into lovely little strips of goodness! Aren't they gorgeous!?

I chose some matching variegated Perle 8 cotton threads to match as I knew I wanted to add hand stitching to the pouches. I absolutely love the special touch hand stitching adds, but boy does it ever add on a lot of time and I'm not even doing anything intricate!! However, I do aim to learn some pretty stitches, etc... But one thing at a time!

A little peek at my work in progress yesterday... These needle-minders are the best thing since sliced bread!! So convenient and I'm so happy to have a handful of them now!! Love them so much!

I actually have 4 pouches on the go, and managed to get 2 of the 4 done by last night! I'll work on the other 2 this week when I have time. For those wondering, the next 2 will be more of a "cosmetics pouch" size.

However, I have a few Instagram swaps on the go that I need to start on and have 2 custom orders on the go, both which are fairly large, so the other 2 will have to wait for now!

The blue Liberty of London pouch is lined with batting, so it's soft & smooshy, and measures in at 4x8.5" - finished off with a beautiful peacock zipper charm my sister made! *Available: $43.00 postage paid in Canada. US please add $3.00 shipping.

The pink floral Liberty of London pouch is lined with lightweight interfacing and measures in at 4.5x8.5". I added a pretty silver tassel to this pouch! *SOLD

*I will have handful of these gorgeous zipper charms for sale this upcoming weekend!! I've finally talked my sister into selling a few! I've had so many people ask me for them, so if you'd like to add a few to your handmade items be sure to check in this weekend! I'll post updates as I have them...

And on that note I'm off to get my day started! I hope everyone has a wonderful day!
