Early Valentines

I've started on my valentines already. I went for a long weekend at the beach and I brought a bunch of silk and ribbons and stamps to make lavender sachets. Here are the raw materials.

And here are the some in-progress examples.

More pictures when they're finished!

Aprons, Aprons Aprons!

  I've have been having lots of fun with aprons lately. I went to a cookie decorating party before Christmas with the little girls I used to nanny for, so I made them each a little apron with a nesting doll motif. I enjoyed using lots of bright pink and ruffles and making them very girly.

  Today is my best friend's birthday, and she loves Alice in Wonderland, so I made her an Alice-themed apron. Once again, I had a blast making it, and I got an email from her husband saying she loves it.

  I'm working on my apron pattern and hope to put it on my etsy store soon, with a couple of new motifs, including an owl which I just love. Fiona
