A new top and a shop!

I cant believe how much sewing I have been doing behind the scenes here, so many finishes and wip's that I just haven't had time to share with you.

But today I've swung by to share one of those makes that you are so glad you did, you know the one that will get used so much it will wear out (why can't every make be one of these?!)

I purchased the Grainline Scout Tee pattern a while back and remembered my lovely best friend had given me some beautiful tribal fabric brought on a trip to Africa about 15 years ago. A perfect match!

This top is so comfortable, lovely and loose and light, it will be perfect for those warm days that must surely be coming soon. In the meantime I have been wearing it with jeans and a cardigan.

I made my own bias binding for the neckline from some Chicopee Heatwave Stripe. I do like a little contrast somewhere if I can get it in.

When I haven't been sewing I have been trying to get my Etsy Shop back up and running. I still have a long way to go with taking good photographs and writing winning descriptions that make people run for their purses but hopefully it will be a way of supplementing a little income. I have a few quilts and some little items that make great gifts and I am hoping to add more as I can. Let me know if there is anything you would love to see in there!
