And I am a little bit behind!

I'm pleased to have made a start, so many ideas going through my head and not enough time.

I have to give thanks to the lovely ladies over on MSE the inspiration they have provided me with is amazing, thank you.

The Practice Run Crayon Roll

The lovely ladies on the Sewing Thread on MSE have filled me with so much inspiration, I have a list of gifts I want to make for christmas the first being co-ordinating Crayon Rolls and drawstring bags (Thanks to Dizzytina for the idea).

I have bought my material ready but didn't want to chance messing it up so I practiced using some tea-towels, it's not perfect but I'm happy with it!

My First Proper Bit of Sewing

Well my Sewing Machine is nearly a year old, and I'm quite embarassed to say it's not had much use, I picked up some lovely material and have been meaning to make a bag for while! So I had the bright idea of making a start yesterday, for my first attempt I am thrilled to bits! It's really given me the bug now and I can't wait to start the next project!

More bracelets

I'm so happy to have built up a little supply of handmade bracelets, I am really enjoying making these, such a lovely way to unwind in the evening.


Well after my visit to the Range this morning and noticing all the Christmas craft has been put out, I thought what better time to make a start and have all the Christmas cards ready in time! I bought these peels off for £0.25 in the bargain section of the Range, I think I may add some pretty lace to the bottom to jazz it up a little, so it's work in progress but a start none the least!

Seed Card for my Nan

Thanks to the inspiration of the Ladies over on MSE, I made this little holder to hold a packet of seeds, I have to admit it was abit rushed but as always will learn from my mistakes.
