this is tiff’s guide lines this also pic link’s you to her page too so you can go check here out… tiff
is holding a fab weekend
get together for crafters alike i so with i live a bit closer but i think the uk is just a bit to far away!!!!
so here i am my friend’s think i am crazy but my blog friend’s i hope will be more positive!!!!
i have got a few guide lines for myself whilst on this year long journey…..
- i will only buy clothes from thrift shop’s
- i will buy “tool’s” eg fabric, notion’s, wool, patterns &book’s to aid me used if i can
- shoe’s i feel will be a bit of both!!
- i will try to do some kid’s clothes too
- i shall try to always buy thrifty good’s for the house
i shall stand by these rules for the next 12 months
and when i say try i will i mean with all my might BUT if my hoover breaks no harm to you buy i’ll be buying a new one kid’s are messy creatures!!!!!
i hope that my utmost challenge will aid me is self teaching seamstresness!!!! wish me luck!!!
another week has passed me by, to say it’s been hectic is a understatement
both boys had fall’s & have injured one another
i know i know they are boys this will happen!!!! oh well enough of that chat let’s talk sewing!!!!
i have been going along with first ever quilt tutorial
and i am about to sew my top together rather excited to say the least!!!!
these are my squares
they should measure 8.5 but I’m shy on quite a few but this is my first quilt so hey ho I’m learning!!!!
i have recently finished a day course in sewing curved pieces this is my bag that i managed to get finished i reckon the course was ace and i shall be able to incorporate it into alot of my work
this is a close up
check out my give away if you have time closing tonight some time :))
head on over to kirsty’s for more crafting
wow so i have faced the fear…… and cut the fabric, i have changed a couple of fabric’s the gray didn’t work and the flowers are very cute….
all in all the cutting has gone well i feel one is slightly to small, and i stupidly cut the selvage off with most definite hindsight….. shouldn’t have done that moron hope it’s OK
oh well mustn’t dwell!!!!
if you like the fabric check out this bag!!!!!
once again all fabrics are from mission hall
So this month i am taking part in finki’s may challenge the inspiration is indigenous Australian
here’s what has inspired me so far…..
