It's no secret that I love colour, colour my worldrainbow bright books, but I don't know if anything could top what I found in my recent online travels. The PANONE HOTEL™ in Brussels, Belgium, who would have thought that some clever people would be so kind as to create a little slice of design heaven.
Designed by Michel Penneman and Oliver Hannaert, The PANTONE HOTEL™ showcases colour with a distinctive hue on each colourous guest floor. I know where I will be checking into if I ever happen to pop over to Belgium!

Scrappy Zip Up Pouch

Hallelujah, I have been sewing! For a while now I have been thinking about all the scrap bits of fabric I end up with, after cutting out my cushion creations. I have been saving them up, as they are just too lovely to throw away and I think I have come up with the perfect way to use them....
I messed about with my scraps and created a ruffely pleaty thing. A simple little zip up pouch tut, some plain cotton and felt and Wollah! Yes, looks like I still haven't shaken that thing I have for the delightful colour combo, a little black, white, grey and yolk yellow.

Twenty Eleven's: Check Point

I'm well and truly back into the swing of everyday life, hence why things have been a little quiet here at Feast & Stitches. So far, I'm not making much progress with my Twenty Eleven's, although I have been really good at setting my expectations far too high by planning to get a ridiculous amount of things done after work and on the weekends, in between catching up with some of our good pals and trying to be an attentive, good little wifey - he who knows me best, understands I tend to get a little caught up in my own little world sometimes!

Here's my Twenty Eleven's progress report:

2 Decide on a brand name for my crafty creations 
- I'm doing a fabulous job of brainstorming and coming up with a gazillion different names, but yet to actually make a decision. On a positive note, I have come to the conclusion that I am the queen of procrastination!

3 Sew, Sew, Sew 
- A little bit of mending, but that doesn't count. I have really wanted to push the pedal to the metal on my trusty Singer, but the closest I have been to sewing something in about 3 weeks is looking at my pretty piles of fabric, printing out some new tuts and thinking YEP, I should do that...

18 Source Fabrics 
- TICK, I have added quite a few new pieces to my growing collection and cant wait to see them in their full glory.

For now, I'll leave you with a pretty pile of fabric that I hope to turn into something very soon!
