So, if you read my last blog post you will know that I’m going to post an entry at least once a week. It begins here!
In the last couple of years my creative flow has been mainly drawn to crafts involving wool such as crochet, knitting and felting. Recently this has changed, I have now started to make appliqued fabric cards. It all began in March when I was looking for inspiration to make my mum a birthday card on Pinterest. I then started creating and designing my own cards with the help of my new love..Bondaweb! These cards are perfect for using up scraps of fabric and they look great too. I then had the idea of making pictures to frame, but I’ll talk about them another time. Hopefully, when I make some more of these I’ll be able to put them up for sale in my Etsy shop.
I have a confession to make, at the start of the year I convinced myself that I was going to write a blog entry at least once a week, that plan didn’t quite work out, so now 7 and a half months into the year I’m going to try again.
I’m hopeless at all things technology based (minus sewing machines, of course!) but I’m going to give it a go. I have so many phd’s (wow, how clever do I sound?!) this stands for projects half done by the way. I keep changing from one project to the other and then back again, then I’ll start a new project and it keeps spiralling around and around. I should probably complete all of my half done projects before I buy anymore wool or fabric, it’s so easy to get carried away. (especially when Wool Warehouse have a sale on.)
Here’s a picture of me with my lizard, Liz.
I recently passed my driving test (first time) so I am planing on going to lots of craft fairs! But first I need to get a lot of stock together. I finished making another batch of pin cushion sewing jars which were featured in one of my first blog posts, that’s one project crossed off the list!
Yesterday was a very productive day for me as I designed and made an applique landscape picture (I completed it in one day!) so this morning I was feeling a bit down in the dumps because all of my creative energy had been zapped, I woke up early in the hope to go on a bike ride, but the beautiful Cornish summer weather wasn’t so beautiful. Stuck inside all day, I decided that I should probably get back to writing this and here we are. Wow, sorry for being so boring. I didn’t realise I had written so much! a creative post will be written shortly.. I hope.
