Last but by no means least - in fact, last but most - is the bag I made my mum for Mothers' Day (or is it Mother's Day? I need to read some 'Eats, Shoots & Leaves'). I'm so pleased with how it turned out: the fabrics together, the button, the way I 'knocked it up' following my instincts rather than my usual control freakery. And I love that the floral, mustardy fabric is Anna Maria Horner, whose blog I really enjoy and whose sense of colour and pattern is exuberant and yet perfectly judged. It was a little treat of a purchase for me and for my mum, and hopefully not my last from her range.
And there you have it. I haven't sewn a thing since - the Tiny One arrived once March had departed, and has ruled my roost since. But I am promising myself to make time for sewing (soon, soon) and I hope it won't be too long. As a little whet to my appetite, and a spur on to sparking up the machine, I've been on ebay buying fabrics in the last couple of weeks and getting very excited when our postlady comes!
