About Me

My photo
What can I say ... I LOVE CRAFTING. Over the years I have done a wide selection of crafts, including Cross Stich, Tapestry, Long Stitch, Card Making, Beadcraft, Patchwork, Quilting, Pottery Painting, Slipcasting, Calligraphy ... plus others that I can't think of right now. I have however, only recently started to sell the items that I make - watch this space!

More ticked off!

No, I'm not annoyed!  I've got more ticked off my 'To Do' list... woohooo

I had a good hunt around last night, but still can't find the lead for my camera phone to connect to my laptop.  Blogging just isn't the same without photographs, so I decided to go the long way around and bluetooth them to my PDA and then connect that to my laptop .... yayyy!  Was a little annoyed that my phone won't bluetooth direct to my iPad though - guess you need an iPhone to do that??

So here are a couple of pics of the items I got done yesterday, and the thread catcher that I made this morning.

These are obviously my note book covered and needle book.  I think they look lovely together like this.  

Add a pin cushion and place on top of a rugmug 

This is the reverse of my mugrug - I used one of the flowers from the panel on the fabric that I cut the swirlies from.  Not sure I like the flowers, but it does give an option.  I wanted these to be quick and easy to get me back into sewing rather than embroidery, so I decided not to do any quilting on this one.

Complete with matching thread catcher.

I wasn't completely convinced with this material when I started, but I've grown to love it over the past 2 days.  I am sure I can come up with a few more projects for my sewing room to make with it.

By complete contrast, this is the needle book that my daughter made for herself yesterday.  The colour she chose from my scrap box works well with the bright pink fleece she chose for the 'pages'
She wants to add a bit of ribbon to tie it like on mine, I guess that part will be down to her wonderful Mummy! LOL
