Pretty things and something for me

I have had a very busy couple of weeks with orders, for which I am very grateful.  It's fantastic when my stock sells, but I do so love making appliqued bunting. I love the whole process from putting together the fabric options, to deciding upon the felt colours and then adding the little details. Here's some of favourites that have gone in the post this week:

Pretty Pinks with Itty Bitty embellishments and lace trim

A bespoke order with a pretty vintage feel

Gorgeous Delilah fabrics, with the appliques in a mix of upper and lower case

Having had such a busy time, my orders book has been well thumbed and as I kept picking it up I did think it was a very sad looking thing with it's black plastic cover.  So, I set to making it a pretty cover

Out came my collection of precious fabrics, that I have squirrelled away for just such occasions, my cotton lace collection, linen tapes, ribbons and wooden buttons 

I really, really, really enjoyed making this and sad as it may sound, I shall give me lots of pleasure, each time I pick it up

I hope that you have a lovely weekend, what's left of it and a great week!
