The weather here per usual has been fluctuating like crazy from one day to the next, but spring is here and I can't wait for the warmer sunnier days to come. It also means I need to get to my spring sewing!

Quilting



This quilt and bag were both made by me for a friend going through some not so great things. Another friend quilted the design you can see which I think really brought the whole work together. I lined the bag so that the quilt will slide in and out easily. I have only made a couple quilts and I've generally not enjoyed it but this one went together rather painlessly thank goodness.

Tulle skirt

tulle skirt, metallic yarn, camper shoes




Sweater: Gift
Skirt: Self made
Tights: Winners
Shoes: Camper
Earrings: F21


This tulle and printed skirt was inspired by a similar skirt I saw a while back at Anthropologie, I liked the idea of a print with the tulle over top instead of underneath. I used a wide sparkly elastic for the waistband but I'm still not sold on the stuff for waistbands in general.

This sweater is only to just past my waist and was perfect with this waist high skirt. It was handmade by a volunteer at my work and I treasure it as the pattern is something I don't think I will ever be able to  replicate.
