Firstly I must apologise for my lack of bloggery lately. I have no excuse other than extreme busy’ness. But now that silly season has come to an end you will be hearing an awful lot more from me 🙂
For those of you who don’t follow me on Facebook and Twitter, I have started on a new adventure. Sewing! ….. I have been inspired to start by many things but mostly the incredibly talented Debbie Shore, who has the most amazing videos on you tube and a fabulous shop, Thimble Lane, where you can get gorgeous fabrics and just well gorgeous stuff, and my great buddie Sarah Millsop who has been making lovely christmas presents and showed me a totes gorgeous make-up bag complete with clasp and freehand machine embroidery which I adored, and wanted to make immediately! So with all this going on in my head, imagine my delight when I spotted the Toyota oekaki on the POTW recently 🙂 and my fab hubbie bought it for me for Christmas 🙂
So I have been plaguing the life out of Debbie’s extremely helpful forum peeps and with the help of one of Debbie’s video tutorials I have made my first complete project…… Here it is a Christmas decoration.
I had a little trip to the market in durham yesterday and bought this beautiful fabric and ribbon, I also indulged in some little tinkly santa bells, and I’ve seen one on the little heart at the bottom.
It’s no where near as fab or as perfect as Debbie’s was, but I am chuffed to little pieces with it, and when it’s hanging on the door the little bell tinkles all Christmassy 🙂
So from the fabric I bought I think I have enough to make another 3, so guess what I’ll be doing today 🙂
I’ll be back soon with more bloggery I promise 🙂
