Summer Berries

A summer pavlova! I love the way the berries reflect the colours in the table cloth. Anyone who has been to Mauritius will recognize the colourfull, hand embroidered, island figures.Wish I was there now!

New start!

I haven't disappeared off the face of the earth, just had a bad creative start to the year! My digital printer has given me endless trouble and only seems to print when it feels like it! At the moment is not printing magenta at all, which obviously affects all the colours, except black. Also, the fabric supplier I use for my tea towels has closed down and I need to go to Cape Town to try and find a new supplier. I've been trying to think of something else to make for my etsy shop but it seems that all good idea's are taken!

I haven't been blogging because I feel I have nothing to blog about but I still read other peoples blogs and look forward to their posts everyday. I suppose that is a bit selfish really so I have decided to make an effort. I do so admire all of you out there who put in so much time and effort to take pics everyday. In an attempt to clear my mind I started by tidying out my fabric stash. Considering that I don't really sew much, I seem to have accumulated a fair amount of fabric!

I just need to get started and today is the day! It's a very late start to 2010 but I suppose 'better late than never!'
