BECAUSE YOU KNOW I'M ALL ABOUT THAT BASS......
First things first.....it's a notice to Save the Date. Saturday 31st October to be precise. Yep, a date for the second WOYWW Crop of 2015 has been pencilled in the diary. A spookily crafty Halloween feast-a-rama awaits those daring enough to join Julia and I for the day. Same place as usual :-) Who's up for it? Julia will be doing a new Crop page at some point....sign up there!
Right....it's been a busy week and I haven't made that much.
I was playing around with the gorgeous new fabrics that Sally gave me a couple of weeks back. I liked the combination of floral and stars - that lavender spot was in my stash already. Whenever I'm in Fabricland, I tend to stock up on spotty polycottons as they're incredibly useful and only £3.99 a metre.
I left a raggedy edge to the heart.....
And the finished beach/shopping bag.
A bit of fun to brighten up someone's day :-) Dunno what I'm going to do with it yet though!
I used the offcuts to make a small zipped bag but instead of the usual rectangles of fabric, found a different pattern to try. It looks really odd at this point, all splayed out like that.....
But this way gives a wider base and a more triangular prism sort of shape, which I rather like. It's more funky somehow. I'm going to give this bag away...let me know in the comments if you'd like a chance to win :-) I think it needs some buttons or other embellishment to fancy it up a little, so it may well change again, lol!!
Two more fab ATCs landed on my doormat as well, from Jill (left) to Sylvia (right). The pretty card in the middle was given to me by my friend Helen, to say thank you for all the little bits and pieces I made for her charity stall.
I said I've been busy....it was with my brass band. Our Musical Director has been involved in bands for 70 years and unbeknownst to him, a trip was arranged to go to Harwich, in Essex, where he was born and first picked up a cornet. The local band wanted to come and join in as well.....
David had no idea this had been arranged - the first he knew of it was when he walked around the corner and there we all were! It was very emotional and quite wonderful - I was honoured to have been part of it. (I'm at the back in the bandstand, btw - if you peer closely, you might spot me!)
So, that's why I picked today's lyric....I play the Bass and I chose a different base for the make up bag. My mind works in strange and mysterious ways.......grin!
Have a good week!
