I was in the trivial mood today ...



The weather started out really nice today and then it all turned to custard with thunder storms and rain, with the darkest black clouds I think I have ever seen.

I was browsing through my December Homespun when I came across this simple pattern ... so in my mood do something trivial today I decided to have ago .... they really are simple  I was amazed how quickly they went together.



I think they were quite successful ... I have had this fabric for years now ...it is a printed patchwork and I just never had the right thing to use it on ... till now.


I also think the pictures do not do them justice I think I could have taken  better ones,  they are about 8 inches long and you don't see all the pearl beads  ... 
 and the fabric looks better in the flesh so to speak..

I have a few small gifts to do so may be a couple more are in the pipe line.

Lovely, just lovely or simply lovely, and nothing either just or simply, they are too beautiful for words. Cheers, Jean.

Those are very pretty. I love the fabrics - I think you've chosen very well. I wish I could get Homespun magazine. :-(
