Things [ Hand Made ]


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

A lovely little craft fair.

Bex is organising a craft fair in Cheltenham on Saturday afternoon. She is a lovely and very determined person and seems to have spent most of the last week surrounded by piles of stuffing and thread! She has started a business called Stuffed Nonsense which wonderfully describes what she makes.
I am going along to help out on the kids craft table and I have also decided to take along some of the things I have made. I found a lovely small display case, a bit like a printers tray, that I have been filling with little love tokens and treasure purses. I really enjoy making these at the moment and just keep wandering from idea to idea. I wanted to make it look like someones treasure collected and carefully kept. This piece isn't finished but its worked really well. I can't decide whether to frame it as a piece or to make it into a purse.

Gosh, this work is beautiful! I love the embroidery, and the idea behind them, just makes me think of a precious heirloom.
Love Vanessa xxx (do you mind if i knit)
