Did you see that the fabulous Sew Ichigo girls have released a new set of patterns? - Parisienne Cafe. It is just divine - espresso cups, a tea pot, coffee press and coffee grinder. I am particularly in love with the teapot - such a great shape.
Penny and Kerry are each running giveaways of the Parisienne Cafe set on their blogs - click through on Sew and Ichigo above and leave a comment to enter - not sure when their giveaways end but it'll be soon.
I popped across to the Sew Ichigo shop yesterday, so I could buy and download the pattern, and have it ready and waiting to sew something up. But then - surprisingly - I couldn't settle into the awesome TV-viewing that is Celebrity Apprentice last night, until I had ducked into the sewing-space and sewn up a little espresso cup.
Next up will be the teapot.
And emerging from the sewing-chaos that is my cutting-table this morning - a quick little birthday pressie zip pouch for a friend of my oldest daughter. Yes, her name starts with N...
... and yes, she is Australian-born-Irish.
We posted off quite a few parcels yesterday - some shop orders, some surprise thank-you pressies, and Jess' new pincushion too. Thanks so much again to everyone who entered our giveaway, it was a really nice experience.
Madly trying to tick things off the ever-growing sewing list this week, while still squeezing in plenty of down-time in an attempt to keep things sailing smoothly and calmly at home.
Hope your week is a happy one. xoxo cat
