Bunting galore, and a goodbye

I've been madly sewing this morning.  I'm off to teach art journaling at a Christian conference tomorrow followed directly by a family holiday so I was keen to get some bunting made for my tent (at the conference, to be transferred to the VW campervan whilst away after that).  I have tonnes of other things I should have been doing ;)

It was hard to get a decent photo of the bunting itself.  There are fourteen flags in total.  I bought the bunting from Paperchase then 'embellished' it!

The birds are from some fabric I bought on holiday a couple of years ago.  I have a matching tablecloth for the camper.

Yesterday saw a busy day of bunting making too.  I've been busy journaling, initially to de-stress after finishing work.  I'll share some pictures on another day.  I saw some blank paper bunting in Hobbycraft and decided it would be nice to do some journaling on the flags and hang them up during my workshops next week.  Over the week I have six classes, with a max of 11 people each class.  Attendees sign up the day before so I don't yet know how busy I'll be...looking forward to it though!

On a different note, a sad one really, we said goodbye to the play date cafe challenge today.  It was a quiet one, which is why I wanted to make sure I played this week.  It's a challenge I was honoured to be a part of right from the start, and one I continued to go to when my mojo needed a bit of help getting going.  Thanks for all your hard work running the cafe Julie and team!


  1. I Love your buntings Sarah. You always make such original, wonderful looking artwork. I'm sad the play date café has ended. It did have a long, good run though. Julie and all the girls involved should be proud it was such a success and loved by so many! xo

  2. The bunting is beautiful!! Hope the conference teaching and your holiday go well!
    I was sad to see the Play Date Cafe closing it's crafty doors - it's been fun (not that I've played along much lately..) but it must be so much work to keep going on that scale, so Julie deserves a rest...
    Love, Helen

  3. You have had fun with that bunting - totally gorgeous. x Jo
