I'LL BE WEARING RIBBONS DOWN MY BACK THIS SUMMER
Straight to the desk...and don't spare the horses!
What a tip! I've dragged some fabrics out for inspiration as I'm going to make a few things to send off for someone's charity stall. But the question is, do I have enough of that Union Jack to make a carrier bag tube? Sadly no, so I'm going to have to rethink what to do with that small remnant. I haven't cut into that moths/botanicals yet. As the old song says: 'I'm busy going nowhere....'!!
Well, this is a bit more like it! It's always tricky to know what's going to sell at a venue you know nothing about, but tote bags are always useful...... That green really pops.
This is my Downstairs crafting project (and no, I don't mean a Vajazzle....!!) It's a rainbow blanket that I'm running up for another charity. It's fairly brainless stuff which means it's highly appropriate for me :-) After seeing Debbie Rock's incredibly beautiful and complicated crochet sampler stitches recently on FB, it made me realise that it's all about the colour for me and the meditative qualities of mindlessly zipping up and down the rows. But I don't half admire those who can take on treble treble stitches and laugh nonchalantly........
This was the outcome of the Doggy Bag:
Hopefully, if the pooch grows too big for it, the little girl can still use it for other things.
I made a pretend 'dog collar' which can be used as a bracelet or pony tail band. Julia helped me make a chipboard heart shape covered in pretty paper, with jewels and ribbon..but I forgot to take a pic of that...DOH!
It was my birthday last week (thanks to those who sent cards btw!!) I had some great prezzies including some lovely fat quarters from my mate Helen and a riotous rigatoni of ribbons from Janet Fairythoughts....so gorgeous, they made me very happy and will most definitely get used soon! But my weirdest prezzy was from my menfolk who gave me a test where you send a cheek swab off and they trace your DNA back and tell you where your ancestors came from. I love it! I've got a sneaky desire to come from Viking stock...must be the horned helmet in the wardrobe........*wink*
Have a great week xx
