And there was sewing

Made on the weekend as a birthday present for a young girl


The bird and flower embroidery pattern came from the book Made in France.

I used a pretty sheet for lining.

It has been so long since I had made a zippered pouch that I sewed in the zip incorrectly and had to unpick and resew the entire thing.
I hope the recipient liked it.

April 26th 2010

No this hasn't turned into a photography blog. I am still sewing, just haven't taken any sewing pictures for a bit. Speaking of photography blogs have you been to visit Snappy Friends, or A Certain Slant of Light ?

I have a mild obsession with clouds. I love their shape, form, and the way the light dances off and around them. As I wake up early in the mornings sunrise or just after is a perfect time for me to go outside with the camera.
Quite frequently I find myself wishing I had a large ladder so that I could climb on my roof to get better shots. These were taken before 7am this morning.








There is some sewing coming soon. Many Thanks to all those who visit and keep reading with all my sporadic posts.

April 7th 2010 - Morning

I am often up early lately, and most mornings I get the opportunity to see the sun rise. Each time I watch in awe, as the clouds and the sun interact, creating an amazing changing landscape in the sky. It's always beautiful.
