Just for me.........

I have never sewn in leather before(ooh naughty words!!) ..and I have had given to  me by a lovely friend, some rather special pieces of very soft leather in gorgeous colours, so thought to have a play with making a new over large bag in a very simple new shape.  This will be most useful to carry my lunch and paper and kindle on the train into work with me...thought you would like a peek....
some tips...

use leather needles
use a Teflon foot
use polyester upholstory thread or guttermans all rounder
good luck  xxxxx



this is my new autumn cushion displayed in my back room


I love the feel of Autumn, its the equinox over the coming days
light and dark in perfect balance, before the dark takes precedent and settles over us once more over  the land, bringing cosy nights and crisp mornings (I hope).
The days bring with them so many joys so many festivals as the land changes and the fingers of Autumn weave themselves around our hearts.
With Love x

All in the presentation....................

A beautiful shop called Fleurie in Lewes Sussex....it drew me in like a wasp to jam.
Looking into this lovely place, my eyes fluttered from one exquisite display to another and you know that lovely feeling of discovering something quite beautiful I just wanted to move in!  ha ha ..

Thinking on... shouldn't we all have a space in our homes or lives that make us feel like this, so often on pinterest I see so many wonderful images pinned by all of us searching for that 'perfect setting' for that piece of ecru hemp, or soft fall of light on lace.  As the seasons move past us we gather pictures of Autumn leaves and fair isle jumpers why?? Are we missing something in our lives, are we satisfying our soul searching for something lost or not yet found.

Its a huge question I know, and our homes are not shop display areas, but our lives are special and our familys are special too,  making  where we live and love needs to have magic too doesn't it?

How do you make the beauty in your life, will you share it with me xxx
