I'm Trying....

...to fit in a little sewing time... but there's stuff to do..
I've decided to decorate the hall, stairs and landing..


I'm dragging myself into the 21st century and getting rid of the teracotta tartan carpet, I loved it in the 90's but it's got to go...  


it will be repalced with another tartan but in a  much more subdued colour palette.
The sewing will have to wait.

Well.....

...that wasn't the start to the new year I wanted....three days into 2017 and I ended up in A&E at two am. Luckily twenty two hours later I was home ( an attack of AF)
This year I'm trying to get through the fabric stash mountain. This is hopefully a wearable toile but I'm not holding my breath. Marcy Tilton patterns turn out a little on the large size... I think I should have bought the medium. The fabric is something I bought from a fellow member of The Sewing Forum, it's a waxed cotton, terrible to press and a tad hard to sew. (the forum is down at the moment, hope it will be back soon )



But look at that lovely welt pocket!


bright cotton poplin lining.


It's all but done... just waiting to find the right buttons.

Has It Really....

....Been over eight weeks since my last post!
Sometimes stuff just gets in the way. On Monday it's the last meeting of the year for EfemeraInk. we're making decorations for the tree. This one is made with the Tim Holtz pocket watch die.


A bit of Viva Croco crackle paint, a Memory Box die,a wooden snowflake, white berries and a bit of natural sisal.

...Oh and a bell!
Starting in the new year EfemeraInk will be only meeting quarterly...after 12 years of monthly meetings I'm running out of steam....and ideas!
