stiching time

I had a couple of friends over from the UK last weekend, for a few quiet days of sewing and one of them brought me this exquisite lavender bag in silk. It is designed by a woman named Sophie Pattinson who has taught a group of Bangladeshi women how to sew. Read her inspiring story and see more of her wonderful work at http://www.sophiepattinson.com/index.php

Another great site to look at is: http://www.hazelldesignsbooks.co.uk/hazell_designs_books_portfolio.php This shows the work of Rachel Hazell, a friend of Julie Arkell's who may be coming over next year to give a workshop here.
And Just to make you smile, a photo of the newest member of the Armitage family......
Meet Miss Daisy!

  1. Absolutely LOVE that pillow - so charming!
    I hope that Daisy will be allowed to sleep with the guests next summer! She is adorable! Do she and Dog get along well?
    Missing you - hope all is well...
