.: be part of the Parisienne Set :.

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


  1. I saw your cup on Facebook earlier - it's awesome! You make such lovely stuff. I'll be stalking the postie till my parcel arrives ;o)

  2. I'm so glad that I found you - I was one of the extra-lucky quilters to win the Parisienne Cafe pattern and I LOVE your interpretation!


Oh hello there. Thank you for visiting, and for taking the time to leave us a comment, we really do appreciate it. We will reply by email (unless you are a no-reply-commenter, and we can't!). Have a happy day. cat and vee xoxo.
