BURN BABY BURN, DISCO INFERNO....
Hello lovely crafting folks, hope all is well this week - it's been a funny one for me with bursts of madness combined with some quiet hours. The weather has been lovely so there's been a fair bit of gardening done too, changing over of the pots and tidying up. No digging though, the ground is like concrete!
Here's a shot of my desk yesterday, I'm mid making fold up totes but shoved everything to the side when some new fabric from Abakhan arrived!
The pile at the back are waiting for poppers to be inserted whilst the ones at the front are ready for attaching handles.
A good old range of colours and all for £4.99 a metre...bargain!
My SiL Jill sent me some fabric a couple of weeks ago and I finally got round to making something with it, the floral fabric is the main bag folded up inside the spotty pocket cover - it'll be a nice surprise when someone unfolds it. The first one I did like this was Julia's Christmas Sprouts bag!
My mate Kim invited me over for a cuppa and some crafting and introduced me to pyrography!
All set up and ready for action!
I took some wood slices over and we had a go at different templates. Neither of us had done it before so it was interesting to see how hard/soft you had to press and how the different 'nibs' worked. It was enjoyable but I don't know if it's something I'd take up.
A little daffodil with an attempt at shading, lol! It was a bit like quilling for me, the process was fun but I wasn't sure about the outcome, hey ho, you have to try these things to find out!!
I have also made my ATCs ready for next week, I'll probably send them to everyone but don't worry about swapping back. 13 years eh? A proper achievement - see you all on the Anniversary Special xxxxxxx
