The handle, side and main panels are from Joel Dewberry's wonderful Heirloom range. I think this maybe my favourite colourway. I decided to use some Anna Maria Horner 'hugs and kisses' fabric for the pockets. It adds a nice light contrast to the boldness of the jewel like colours in the Heirloom. In fact the darker colour in that print reminds me of the wrapper on a crunchie bar and every time I see it I want a crunchie.
Oppsy need to get the iron out!
The unseasonal weather we experienced last week (scorching hot temperatures) have gone from Oxfordshire today. One of the most colourful flowers out in my garden right now could have been the inspiration for this lovely Heirloom fabric!
I'm not a big fan of 'modern' roses as they aren't particularly pretty flower shapes and most don't smell. I can't remember the name of this rose, but it smells delightful so earned a place in my garden.
I'm linking this up with Stitched in Colour's Celebrate Colour because this project definitely screams Autumn Colour to me!
I can't sign off today without showing you something lovely that I got in the mail today:
I entered a giveaway the other day over at Strawberry Patch and today my lovely winnings from Emily arrived! Didn't she bundle them up so nicely? Cute button - I bet that will get used in a pouch or bag.
Three yummy fat quarters - also in an Autumnal palette. Very yummy. Thank you Emily! I'm sure I'll put these to good use!!!
While we're on the subject of mail do you think I need be concerned that an Etsy seller (a reputable one that I've bought from before) was sending me something on 16 September (from the US) and there is still no sign? Stuff normally gets to me in under 10 days...Time for a convo' or am I just being
