BURN, BABY, BURN....
I haven't done a huge amount of crafting again this week as it's been rather full of life events! But as I promised to make a few little bits and pieces for my Weight Watchers class Macmillan coffee morning, I'd better get cracking....
So, the table is full of lovely bright coloured fabric - how gorgeous is that?! I sorted out all my Christmas materials and am going to leave them out so I can pick and choose as the fancy takes me.
I took a couple of samples along to class to see if they were appropriate for sale. I'm down to the very last bit of that Orla Keily type leaf pattern, maybe two more tissue holders and then it's done. I've had that particular fabric for ages and have made a fair few bits and pieces out of it. Same with that hearts material, which is particularly suited to making glasses cases I think :-D
Another project was inspired by Pinterest:
I'm having a go at painting pebbles - after all, there is a rather good source locally! I put a base coat on using a tester pot and it's worked quite well - the pebbles were scrubbed really well beforehand and left to dry thoroughly. We'll see, it may a glorious success or be doomed to disaster!
I was away at the wedding of my niece this weekend (the second in a fortnight). Clare and Darren had got legally hitched a couple of days before so this was a blessing ceremony. They asked me to lead the proceedings, so with knees knocking, I did:
It was outside set in a woods and was completely magical. It all went well and my niece was so beautiful - a wonderful day. They're a great couple and I know will have an amazing life together xxxx
Outside the hall was a metal globe that had been laser cut with trees and animals - after the sun had gone down, it was filled with blazing logs..
We sat around for ages just watching the flames flicker, quite magical....
I fancy one of these for our garden!
Hope you all have a great week - keeeeeeep crafting :-D
