I can't believe is May already, today we are celebrating May Day here in England.

Anita needs new Summer clothes and a new quilt for her bed.I will use some Liberty fabric and Japanese pattern books. She grew up a lot lately and she has upgraded to a "big" bed (of course the cot bed, who became a little bed, was too small for her and she was keep banging her head... poor!).
So, to make this task less solitary, I joined KCWC project (kids clothes week challenge) found through mikodesign.
(The nice basket is from here)

Past KCWC on the Flickr pool

Papier Mache # 7 out now

I quite like Lari Washburn sketchbooks  and designs.

That basket would keep me busy for the next ten years...but I think you're on a mission and you'll probably have everything ready by the end of next week! x

Oh, lovely liberty fabric! I bet Anita ends up with the best quilt EVER. Have fun x

la casita said...

Thank you all, I will focus on the clothes first and then on the quilt, because it will take more than a week of crazy sewing to be actually made!

Oh, that kids clothes sewing week, for a second I thought I would join it but I would rather need a doctorate paper writing week instead. I have to be responsible, So I strictly oppose, no sewing next week. Just next week.
I was going to say that I like your choice of fabrics. Good luck with a quilt.
