I've been otherwise occupied for most of 2011 and haven't really done much sewing since the flurry of activity around the 2010 Nov/Dec BrisStyle markets. Pity, pity, pity as a few of my lovely friends (props must go to the tres generous Akiko and Antoinette) have been o/s recently and brought me back brown paper packages, wrapped up in string ... and filled with delightful and interesting fabrics. I even had a trip to Melbourne's Tessuti fabrics - so the fabric pile's been calling me, like a siren song, but I've somehow resisted their charms.
Well, these glorious 5 days off from work have given me the much needed space to be back at the Bernina. I've whipped up a few new special treats for Friday's BITM. Below is a sneak peak at some of the purses and wristlets I've made. Drawstring bags to follow.
