Starting my mini

Have you been enjoying all the eye candy thats been popping up in relation to Jennifers Modern Mini Challenge? I know that I have, wow some people are so talented and creative, It just makes me wish that I had time to create everything that pops into my head.

I have however found a tiny amount of time to start on a mini for me, for Jennifers challenge. I really wanted to join in on this but then I thought for a while that moving continents might get in the way of that. However I have now started and hopefully I will finish (I keep putting off the packing though, I guess I should do that and then sew!)

Recently I have been loving art with a washed out, muted palette, and im finding that im really influenced by illustration. I have been pinning alot recently, these are just a few that I love




And its these that have influenced my mini.
Its got a long way to go and im not even sure that its going to turn out as I imagine it, but its definitely going to remind me of home if nothing else!

P.S Im not doing to well on this not sewing or blogging in exchange for packing! I have however booked tickets, we fly out next Sunday!

Looks intriguing so far! Alas, I came to the realisation yesterday that I just don't have the fabrics to allow me to recreate what I had in mind for my mini, although I have an idea for the sew out loud one that might be able to double up... we'll see!

Ooo I love your inspiration images and your sneak peek. Do finish before you leave!

You're doing just what I would do... anything other than the priorities. Good luck with the move!
