Artisan Apron from a janet clare pattern

Finished my Artisan apron from a pattern available from Janet Clare, 
I plan to be wearing my apron while sewing and crafting to inspire me to create. 
I will be adding some embellishments as the months go along,  I have already started with a few things that mean something personal to me,  as you can see in the photos below.

First I added 3 small crochet doilies that I just love so much, along one pocket, in the centre I added some of my favourite heart buttons,  love these so much that they have appeared on a few of my latest projects. 
The peach lace I bought on our trip to Australia to visit our son earlier this year,  so I added this as a reminder of our wonderful trip.
On the back along the shoulder seam I embroidered the love to sew,  because I do so much, always makes me feel relaxed stitching , knitting or crochet. 
I was knitting some dolls clothes for my granddaughter earlier this year and made some crochet cats to add to the front of a dolls jumper,  I had one left over so it just had to go on my apron,  another reminder of my fun projects this year. 
Im sure this Apron will pop up again in future posts as I add to it with more precious memories. 
I have a idea to draw around the grandchildren hands then embroidered around the outline. 
So watch this space.

Bag of the Month Club 2016

I have been enjoying my bag making so much this year that I have signed up for

6 of the best bag sewing pattern designers in the business are teaming together to bring you a 6-month membership club.
The club runs from January-June of 2016. Each month, you will receive an exclusive and brand-new pdf bag sewing pattern from that month’s designer, ready to download from your account area on our site. If you are familiar with even one of the designers, then you know that you can expect a high-quality and easy-to-understand sewing pattern each month!
The bag designs will be a mystery until each pattern is revealed every month. We promise, they will definitely be worth the wait! The patterns will be exclusive to the club for the duration. Each pdf pattern will be uploaded into your account on the 1st of the month, and will include detailed instructions, illustrations/photos, and templates needed to make the bag pattern.
If you join after the club begins, you will receive all patterns released to the club up until that point (for instance, if you join on February 14th, you will receive the patterns for January and February automatically).
We are all so excited for you to join us! The one-time fee for 6 months of Bag of the Month Club is $40, during which time you will receive 6 pdf bag sewing patterns. The club runs from January through June of 2016.
There were some fabulous designs in last years group.
