RIDING ALONG ON MY PUSHBIKE HONEY.....
Well, that was a crazy week, two separate lots of visitors within 6 days...the guest room bedding has never been so well washed!! But some crafting did get done, woohoo :-D
Here's the desk in the crafty aftermath:
Tangled cords and scraps of fabric waiting to be put away - my box file full of cardboard templates is on the left. They're supposedly sorted out into groups but that system doesn't last long....
I made some drawstring PE Bags to sell for the RNLI -
I love this nautical fabric, it was part of a fat quarter bundle from Hobbycraft - my brother Steve saw it and thought it would be great for his dancing shoes. Old Twinkletoes does Ballroom and Jive dancing so it'll get used a lot.
A demo shot with Steve's trainers sticking out - they do fit in, this was for artistic effect, lol!!
Then I used some of the Marvel Superheroes fabric:
This worked really well - I'm looking out for a craft show now.....or maybe Steve fancies another shoe bag!!
And another, using up some contrasting fabric:
My nephew, his wife and my 8 week old great-nephew came to stay as well and I thought the Marvel fabric would make a great bandanna bib:
Fun huh?! I used some towelling for the lining and another of those colourful poppers to fasten. This was so easy to make, I did another in the fishy fabric but forgot to take a pic of that. I also made Leo some bunting:
He's got a lot of lion stuff so I thought a seaside theme would be a bit different!
If you're interested, the Cycle Tour of Britain starts on Sunday at the Pembrey Country Park which is just down the road. TV coverage is on ITV4 at 10.45 - there should be some great shots of 'my' beach and the lovely countryside around. The council are pulling out all the stops to make the route look good, there are lots of green painted bikes around the villages at the moment with this outside the County Hall in Carmarthen itself:
It must be 10 metres tall! Perfect for the Jolly Green Giant, I should think :-D So please don't call me on Sunday morning, I shall be glued to the screen!!
Have a great week!
