I’m Back…

…but not in an Arnold Schwarzenegger way!

I’ve been gone too long and have had twitchy fingers for a while now, so because I really couldn’t sleep this morning, even though I wanted a lovely long lie in, I’ve bitten the bullet, given the old blog a bit of a refresh and decided to write my first post in a long, long time.  I’m not sure I “LOVE” this new format, so it may change again soon.

New fresh approach for me in Blogosphere I think, I’m going to be sharing what I’m just generally up to on a regular basis and sharing all the new and exciting crafty things I’ve been getting up to.  My favourite recently is this wonderful pin cushion in a teacup, which has also been glued to the saucer and tea plate for extra portable storage for bits bobs and doodads.  pin chusion

It has got me thinking about what else I can do with teacups… I’ve recently received a box full of really beautiful ones such as this from my Gran, which are an heirloom, but I don’t want them just sitting doing nothing in a box so I’m looking for crafty teacup projects to fill the house with, please do share your ideas with me!  One of the things I’ve been wanting to make for an absolute age is a Tilda teacup angel, I bought the hair, crown, fabric for skin, goose feathers for wings, and everything at least 2 years ago! Do any of you do this, I’m a terrible procrastinator! But, I think this pretty pink and gold one is screaming out to have a little Angel in it! Just like this one, but with a crown instead of a rose in her hair.

I’d love to hear your ideas and inspiration for things to do with Teacups too, I have a LOT of them, teacups that is, not ideas – I’ll be heading to Pinterest for those!

I’m pacIMG_0886king for an exciting business trip to California today, and so I’m going to be fashioning myself a Denim Skirt, from a pair of old Jeans which are to big now, but will be lovely and loose, cool and comfy for travelling in.  This “how to” from the latest  Simply Sewing Magazine has got my creative juices flowing, so I’ll be back with a picture of me in the skirt soon, I hope, tomorrow, I will be making mine longer!


Until next time, Crafty Hugs
