Have you ever given a handmade hostess gift and immediately wish you had kept it. Well, that happened to me over this vacation. The person hosting did an amazing job of welcoming three huge families into her house for a long weekend and feeding and tending to us all in the nicest way. I wanted to give her something amazing . . .
I think Quince & Co’s patterns are on the whole very modern and current. This bag would be perfect for bringing to the pool or the market, I think.
I’ve never worked with linen before, but I quite enjoyed it. I particularly like their version, called Sparrow. The color is beautiful, rich and natural. The pattern is double stranded, which is a bit of a pain, as sometimes I dropped a part of a stitch. I’m particular enough that I tend to rip it out and do it over again. It’s a bit of a nasty habit, but I think the final product makes it all worthwhile.
Things are really busy here on this front. I have a lot of making to do for two online courses I’m going to be teaching – very exciting, and something I will let you know more about soon. I have my 1001 peeps Summer Camp project coming up this friday – so keep your eyes out for something very dramatic and exciting.
I am so happy you are here! I am a maker and lover of beautiful things. Find DIY’s, patterns, projects and inspiration to endlessly delight you in your quest for a happy handmade life.
