Anyone who lives in Sydney will know that Doyles is an icon. It has been around on the Watsons Bay site since 1885 and is famous for its fish and chips.
Yesterday I headed back into the city to attend a talk at the Quilters Guild of NSW by one of its members. After being inspired by the speaker I wandered into David Jones to enjoy their annual spring flower show. Due to the main store being renovated the show was held in the men's store on the opposite street corner and while the display was on a much smaller scale the flowers were still stunning.
I did however join in with Cheryl and other crafters for FNwF. During the week some fabric was found which was leftover from a cushion cover that was made a couple of years using Star Wars fabric. After having a think about what could be done with not too much fabric I decided to go with using it for pockets on the fronts of some childrens' aprons. There is enough to get another 5 or 6 pockets so 5 or 6 more aprons can be made. The straps are made from leftover fabric from the mixmaster cover that I made for a friend sometime ago. Having stars on it seems to fit in well with the star war theme. The new Star Wars movie will be released in December so hopefully they will prove to be popular. This is as far as I got before calling it a night in the sewing room. I will endeavour to have them ready for the next hospital stall in October.
Back soon and in the meantime
Happy sewing all

Doyle's must have a few places around the country. Quite famous. Great idea with the aprons.
Glad to see you out and about Karen in the lovely Spring weather, however think winter returned for a last hurrah though! Doyles, hmm .... what a lovely place to go for lunch. I also love the use of the Star Wars fabric on some of your aprons. Sounds like you have a busy month ahead of you.
