Spring sewing.

As spring has officially started and easter is very near I thought I'd better get on with my easter/spring makes. A few weeks ago I showed you Lucie the Goosie and Harriet Hare and I've now made them a friend each, some fabric eggs and I've nearly finished a table runner. I haven't taken any photos of the other items but here is the table runner in progress.



Despite the fact that I have other items to finish I got an idea for another project into my head, and me being me I couldn't wait to start. Any ideas what it's going to be?



I was reading Karol-Ann's blog the other day and saw the gorgeous little coin purses she's been making and couldn't resist buying one from her etsy shop. Go and take a look, I'm sure she'd love to sell some more, they even smell lovely too. Here's my new purse.



That's it for now, I've got some sewing ironing to do before school pick-up.
Bye for now, Maria.

Pretty table runner. Great color and fabrics. I'm guessing your other project is a cathedral window. We awoke to Spring snow but the sun is shining. Have a great weekend.

What a pretty table runner. I just wish the weather would wake up to the fact that it's officially spring time now. Is your other project one of those quilt-as-you-go jobbies, where you stuff each patch as you go along, then join them up to each other a bit like English patchwork?

So pleased you like your coin purse. Thank you for your purchase and endorsement :-)
Your Spring sewing looks great. I'm think Cathedral windows too, although I've never done them myself so I'm not sure what they should look like in progress.

What a lovely table runner, Maria! So nice and bright. The colors for your 'suprise' quilt are very nice too.
Have a great weekend!

Very pretty. It reminds me of icecreams with its colours.

Ooo cathedrals! Looks like fun.

Sweet little purse.

Hello! - I'm new to your blog so thought I'd have a good read through! I love your table runner and the colours you've chosen. I've just started quilting and have really got the bug - I can't stop!
