Scrappy Fabric Collages

It's that time of year where a lot of my sewing is on dance costumes for a very dear friend's child.  I've also been working on some boring, practical sewing too so I thought it was time to treat myself to something fun and just for me!
So I gathered bits of fabric, lace and ribbons and put together this pretty fabric collage...
...sewn with a curvy leaf vine up the middle and a tiny zig-zag around the frayed edges.

 I was so pleased with the result I set to and made another...

 and topped this one with a button and frill flower.

That wasn't much of a Summer, was it?

I would have loved to spend days at the beach, watching the waves and squishing my toes in the sand!

Oh well, I never even got to buy any postcards so I made one instead...

Still busy, just not been blogging...

Ok, shame on me for not blogging for such a long time.  I offer my humble apologies!
I have been busy, but haven't had a lot of luck with taking any decent photo's. I finally managed to snap a few of acceptable quality.

During a big clear out and re-arrangement of some of my kitchen cupboards I found three old wooden rolling pins (I now have a swanky marble one)...
 ...so I painted one in 'Lime White' and decorated it with some craft papers in fresh prints from the Papermania 'Rose Garden' collection...

...added the word BAKE and some cute pink gingham ribbon and made myself a nice little decorative kitchen accessory!
