Things [ Hand Made ]


My chance to wonder about hand made things and tell the world about those I make, love and cherish!

Another distraction.

I am continuing to work through my list and so I am now making advent calenders. One for my nephew and one for the nursery at school. It will be good to cross that one of my list as my nephews has been sitting on my list for 18months now!
Its a peculiar feeling to be getting to the bottom of my list. Then I will have to do the things I have mentally added to the list but have not written on!
Speaking of which....... I found this great quilt panel in Hobbycraft and couldn't resist it. The Very Hungry Caterpillar is one of my favourite children's book and seeing little chubby fingers in the holes always makes me curl up with delight. I am not a great fan of pre-printed panels but loved this one and couldn't resist it. Somebody will have to have it in their bedroom even if that means me!

I have solved my Burda problem by completely ignoring the error message and registering anyway!

Looks like your having fun.You can use two layers of bond-a-web(taken off the backing) and put a sheer on top, or I have a box made of vylene with leaves added with Super Mend powder and a range of fibres machined on top. Best to use pressed petals or leaves. I'll post a pic of the box sometime.

I love the Very Hungry Caterpilla Book. It was voted as one of the best Children Books ever written. It really encourages children to read, which is great.

The angel I made was from a book 'sew pretty homestyle' - great book!

Oh, Joanna, you have done soo much since I last visited, and posted as well! BIG Congratulations! On keeping at least one thing from your to do list, on starting to make things for Christmas (ah! isn't it only October?), on exhibiting and especially on selling!!! And I would love to see some close-ups of your work, especially of the postcards! Please!!!

The hungry caterpillar fabric is lovely! I haven't seen the panels before, though I've been tempted by the spotty print and the caterpillar repeat print online. Sounds like you have been very busy sewing!
