My latest finds...
gorgeous french fabric, french cottons and french buttons

 So beautiful and tactile, irresistible even.  I made these fabric hearts from a piece of the pale green ticking and packaged them for the shop, even sold one today to a friend when she saw them on the kitchen table!!  

 I can't believe how much fun i'm having with my new sewing machine.  After a few hiccups i'm starting to get the hang of it and trying all sorts of designs.

these are paper and stitch collages on hand made paper, with modern liberty fabrics, vintage fabric, buttons and ledger paper from the 1850's.
 free motion sewing to hold it all together

...and a work in progress, i love the sewn flower, can't decide whether to paint it or leave it as it is and i can't wait to see this one framed

 ...and last but not least, the winged heart i showed yesterday embellished, again, with another sewn appliqued flower.
