There's never enough hours in a day is there?  I have all this stuff I want to do and all this stuff I need to do.  Unfortunately need wins over want 99% of the time.  I want to paint, I want to decorate the house, I want to sleep til lunch time but in reality I need to make stuff for up coming craft fairs, I need to tidy the house (in order to have space to decorate) and I need to get up in the morning to make packed lunches.
Today though want and need are being combined.  The need to run up some purses and make up bags for the 3 fairs I have coming up is being teamed with the fact that I have a bag of new fabrics and a new snap setter to play with so fingers crossed the results of which will be on the little red sewing blog later today.

Beach treasure

It's been pretty nice here the last few days so the beach was the place to be and we found some treasure!  Well ok perhaps not real treasure but with a little help the boys turned it into treasure.

Haven't done anything with the sea glass yet but a stone shaped like a dinosaur tooth and a sea tumbled bit of pottery made it to the final cut for the boys necklaces.

Wirey thingys

Decided after much debating with myself about trying another something (and telling myself no) to have a go at this beading lark.  Had a look at what was out there and decided the stretchy stuff and thread it on technique that seems to be favoured locally wasn't for me.  Then I spotted some 1.5mm silver plated wire!  Now that is fun.  I don't claim to have any great skills with it or anything, as with most of what I do I just like to play.

So there you have it, my first attempts at wirey things.  thanks for looking x

I think I've cracked it!

Some pix (hopefully)

A couple of the dots and doodles cards and my wonder woman painting, which I really must get framed as i need her on my wall.


it seems for some reason I'm unable to post pix?  Any suggestions?  So yet again here is a link to my facebook page with my latest stuff

So ........... I finally got a sewing machine, yay!  Didn't realise how much I missed messing about with fabric and just making stuff up.  I'm pretty rubbish at working with patterns so I kinda just make it up as I go along.  Here's some of the results....
........... well that was a major fail!  Can't seem to get any pics to load :(  so I've put a link to my facebook page instead, feel free to have a look, have a comment, like me or even better buy stuff lol

Retro blogging!

Well, I found my old blog!!  Can't sign into it but I lifted some of the cards I had posted so thought I'd share them on here.  My first attempt with promarkers is in there somewhere too!

Ok, I know, I'm late.  Meant to put these on last week but never quite got around to it.  There were loads more but they have gone to be sold, so here's what's left. these are hair barrettes made with various felt thingys, all are available in my etsy shop (see link at the right hand side of the blog).

......... I said I would post what I got up to the other day but I forgot to take pics before I took them to a shop for approval!  Never mind, should get them back later and get some pics up but fingers crossed it leads to some orders :)

I'm guilty!!!

........ of blog neglect :(  I spend so much time looking at other people's blogs I forget about my own.
Anyway, fingers crossed by the end of today I should have something created to put on here, borrowed my mum's sewing machine so it may well be something along the fabric lines depending on how I get on, been a long time since I used one of those contraptions and it doesn't always end well.
Back later if I can figure out how to thread.
