These are some fun coasters!
Some little batik bags - we have lots of these in every colour imaginable. Just right for storing little treasures. All made by hand. I ran a workshop for the Viva a Vida ladies and their friends and we made about 20 of these little gems, some of which have already been sold! I did try making them by machine, but I didn't like how they turned out. There is something really special about hand-made and the batik is a perfect compliment to that.
Some log cabin pin cushions.
Useful purses (I put a traveling sewing kit in each of them - what else!)
Do you like the blue silk I used for the background? Its really one of Sophie's prom dresses which she made herself and which looks absolutely fabulous on her. Hope she doesn't mind me borrowing it for a short while!
And yet another log cabin quilt - just a baby size this time. No matter how many log cabins I make I still seem to have the same number of strips left over. How can this be?
Lety is busy making her famous marmalade, Luiza and Ivonne are making some Brazilian cakes.
The team for the day is Gisella (straight off the plane from Viva a Vida in Brazil), her mum and dad (Luiza and Fred), Ivonne (who never stops smiling), Leonor and me. Lety is off to Greece on holiday so we will miss her.
Of course, we also have our quilt raffle too. I think it is going to be another fun day!
