IT'S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS......!!
Someone once remarked that my desk wasn't messy enough - well, this should prove 'em wrong!! It's all going on here. I'm flitting from one project to another without settling to a particular task. Get a grip, LLJ, you still have two weeks before the first fair..
So, here are some stockings, hearts, bunting all waiting for me to get my act together!
Some random Christmassy -ness...
Here's one I made earlier :) It was too cold to photograph the bunting outside today so here's my fireplace instead! I will have to inform people that the material is not flame retardant when I come to selling the stuff though!
Variations on the theme of Christmas Bunting! You may notice that I've got a bit of a hare thing going on - I'm fascinated by hares, can't explain it, I just am. There's lots of them around where I live and they are amazing to watch. Wild and magical they are - so much more than just big bunnies!!
I decided to make some Christmas Stockings too, using funky materials. They may sell, they may not, but I've really enjoyed making them. Love this decorations fabric...
The tartan cutouts are for my Gentlemen's Stockings range - no, no, no, NOT like Priscilla, Queen of the Desert at all !!! Am going to do a contrast lining with buttons round the turned over top. Dunno if they'll work but I'm game for a laugh...
Look - it's the return of the blue, bubblicious material again! Carmen wanted a pegbag in funky colours and this one had her name right on it. She emailed me and said that when it got there, her 4yr old thought it was a Mr Tumble (much beloved children's TV character) bag and refused to let it go! Carmen eventually managed to get it back to put her pegs in but.....
we can't have a little girl going bagless now, can we??
Hope she'll like it :)
I am fortunate to live in a really beautiful part of Wiltshire - we really are spoiled by the gorgeous landscape around. Avebury and Stonehenge are on our doorstep as is the Savernake Forest. This is one of the old Norman Royal hunting forests and still covers a large area, even today. DH usually travels through here at around 7am and is in the habit of taking his camera. These shots were taken early one particularly lovely morning last week.
That was a mixed bag from me this time - or maybe I AM the mixed up bag, lol!! Had a conflab with Son No 2 about his name for this blog and he came up with G3 - Ginger Gentle Giant. Anything to keep him happy... :D
May your Distressed Inks never be too emotional and your glitter flow freely. Have a happy week everyone! xx
