Summer sewing













My friend Maria-José asked me to make her a summer patchwork bag
so I used remnants from my aprons to sew this shopping/beach bag.
Now my hairdresser wants one too.
She's great, she's really my best supporter in the village.
She bought 2 of my aprons already
and I'm thinking of making her a special gift.
Just to tell her, how much I appreciate.
In the meantime, back to sewing !

Oh...and I was so happy to receive a nice mail and enquiry
about my aprons from a shop in London.
I'm already sweating with anxiety....
We'll see....please keep your fingers crossed !

Mon amie Maria-José m'a commandé un sac d'été en patchwork et
j'ai utilisé les chutes des tissus des tabliers pour faire
ce sac de plage/shopping.
Maintenant, ma coiffeuse veut le même.
Elle est super, ma coiffeuse,
elle est vraiment ma meilleure fan dans le village.
Elle m'a déjà acheté deux tabliers et
je réfléchis à une idée de cadeau pour elle,
un truc spécial juste pour lui dire combien j'apprécie.
Mais pour le moment, je retourne à mes bobines !

Oh...et puis j'étais aussi très contente
d'avoir reçu un mail
d'une boutique à Londres pour les tabliers.
Je suis déjà toute moite d'anxiété...
On verra....croisons les doigts !

That bag is truly pretty...I think you have a winner there. Your sewing machine must be working overtime these days!

Lovely beach bag! I have been having the most unbelievable time in Spain! Spain seeps inside the soul and I will return to live here one day for at least a portion of each year. No time to make it to Andalucia this trip--maybe another time. Catalonia has kept us busy!

The bag is beautiful and the photographic lead up to the creation makes it a perfect post.

I hope and hope that the shop follows through and that your aprons get an airing there .... and sell, of course!
