Not lost in translation

My apologies for being quiet. If I am quiet, it means I am creating. I am not very good at picking up the camera to do WIP photos. Today was a market at Moo's school, and I've been busily cutting, sewing and dyeing.

I have a stack of silk and flannel blankets.

And last night I stayed up until midnight making this Jule hoodie. It was the first thing I sold today. I was thrilled that it quickly found a new home.

I love it when an idea in my head is translated onto fabric!

Oh! I love that heart appliqué. So clever with the thread just pulled through as an extra decoration!

The applique looks great Sara! I can see why this was the first one to go. I hope you do more of these!

What beautiful items. I love the heart detail on the top - no wonder it sold quickly.

Sara this hoodie is beautiful. I love your reverse applique idea and the embroidery and can't wait to see more of your creations in this style!

My biggest boy says he doesn't want the robot shirt (can you hear my gasp of horror) so if you're interested in that one or having one made, let me know :)

Oh and thanks for all your encouragement with my appliques too!!
