So what's new you ask? Well, firstly the sewing room has had a little make-over.
I put up a shelf.
Filled up some jars.
Hung up some things, and gave this old beauty pride of place on top.
There is also some new art, a little bit of new fabric, and a new table.
More importantly there is this....
My new baby. Hello lovely.
There are also new ideas bubbling and simmering in this head of mine. New ideas that I need your opinion on.
Ever since Self Stitched September I have been thinking more about refashioning, re-purposing and recycling clothes and fabric. If we want to be truly sustainable we not only need to make our own things but also not use new things to do that. So, one idea that I've been thinking about is offering a refashioning class. You bring old, unloved, unfashionable clothes and we make them into stylish, beautiful, new clothes.

And talking of newness, what's newer than a tiny baby? Which leads me to my next idea (seamless link eh?): a class for making baby clothes or toys or both. Lots of people have been suggesting they'd like to make things for the lovely babies around them and so I thought I'd help you along.
My last new idea is a decoration class. Not decorating your house, decorating your clothes of course. A class where you would learn to apply appliqué, some basic embroidery, attaching piping or cording and a few other tricks I have up my sleeve!

Unfortunately there's only one of me so I can only start with one idea, and that's where I need you. It would be great if you would place a vote on my facebook page, leave a comment below or email me and let me know what you think. Which new idea is one you might want to try?
Anything new with you this week?
