Sew long since blogging, but I have done a little sewing

Oh do find you blog in dribs & drabs sometimes??
Thats me - I tend to blog regularly then stop all together, until I feel terribly slack & start over again.
I don't have much of an excuse - we have been away, but that only took about a week.
I have being sewing quite a lot & teaching a friend to sew too. Unfortunately I forget to photograph our finished products before she takes them home. I am really enjoying it though - not only the good company, but sharing a passion with someone who is so eager to learn & who understands my love of fabric. She agrees that she could spend a whole afternoon just looking & touching lovely fabric. Ahh a girl after my own heart there!
These however are a few items I have finished recently.

The 2 skirts are based around a pattern from a Japanese sewing book my lovley sister in law Noriko brought back from Japan for me. The pattern is quite simple, but oh so pretty - I will certainly make more of these.

The 3 bags are ones I just whipped up because I was in the mood. The blue one I am certainly keeping - it was made from a vintage tablecloth which I loved - I have lined it with some vintage cotton sheet fabric. The other 2 are made from vintage fabrics also.

Those skirts are soooo sweet. And I'd steal your new spiffy blue bag if I lived closer to you and had your address (I think you are safe lol)

Love looking at your beautiful inspiring!!! I'm new to blogging, so I'm going at it with total passion...and...I blog with a friend...which helps when inspiration fails me.

:-) Love your blog...I sort of landed here accidentally, but it's ended up being a rather happy accident if you ask me!

Such cute projects! Do I recognize the pattern for your 3rd bag? (I think so, but can't I remember from where. I really like it!)
