Progress!

After what seemed to be a slow and laborious week I think I’m finally getting somewhere…

Despite working Payroll I’ve lost a semblance of mathematical ability this week how did I think these blocks would match in my head??

But I am almost there with this border… look at all the bows ready to be sewn in one long strip!

So… what are your recent craft disasters?

This afternoon I’m taking a break from fabrics and delving into Christmas papercrafts… see these lovely goodies to play with?

I’ve even resurrected a kid’s classic for baking… but with a more grown up and healthy twist any guesses?

My New Favourite Thing….

If anyone is like me.. you will have loads of crafty bits and bobs lying around from wool to fabrics to fimo to beads and even artsy stuff.

After being inspired to pick up the Michael Powell stamp from Trago a few weeks ago I finally decided to try it out……. since I had enough jewellery in my shop for a bit and the sewing machine isn’t wanting to be friends this weekend.

Usually with stamps I would just throw myself in with the limited supply of pro markers I own but as I’m taking part in the Crafty Folk Round Robin Giveaway- full details here. And…. it’s arrived on the doorstop for my turn I needed to do something different.

Out came the art set… mmm I tried pastels first with some colouring pencils and promarkers thrown in- looks alright doesn’t it?

Then I remembered some watercolour pencils I bought awhile back and decided to play…. attempts 1 and 2 in order.

Number 2 is definitely my favourite! And now… I might just be addicted to watercolour pencils as I’m already planning my next project.

What does everyone think?

P.S- So… the Purse giveaway ends in 40 minutes- will it be you?

Yup… I’m not just a Fabric Addict… Really!

Well what a week so far- I’m exhausted and it’s only Tuesday! My to do list is ever growing…. so time for a droolworthy post…

….. Pretty Pretty Fabrics…..

So who can resist them? I know I have trouble doing that which easily explains why my fabric tower is pretty much crammed full. Which I discovered yesterday to my dismay when I gently placed my latest acquisions in. And guess what? My thoughts weren’t exactly I need to use some up… but more of where can I store new ones?

Mostly when I go giddy and buy I don’t have a certain project in mind… oops how naughty!

Here’s what’s hiding in the top drawer- aren’t they lovely? And it is a tiny fraction of what I hold… oh dear.

I’m not just a fabric hoarder too… I have a massive collection of beads and papercraft of which I had to add to last week. Not sure what I’m doing there either…. but how can you resist it?!

I’m sure some of it will become WIPS before long. But if you have any nifty pattern ideas or tutorials on what I should make with it feel free to send them my way 🙂

And stop drooling…… I’m thinking of holding a sewalong or sewing circle group (more on that to come) but if you are interested in the idea at this early stage just let me know.
