And Now For Something...

... A little different.. some pendants..

Made with my favourite stamps...Zettiology ( Teesha Moore is discontinuing her stamp line.. you might find a few on her Etsy site )


I love these images... I have a quilting project in mind... (I've had it in mind for at least 2 years!)

 Sometime in the distant past I picked up these small wooden frames..
I painted, glittered and decorated..

Another little bit of twinkle to hang on your tree.

Cutting It....

.. Fine, I've got around four days to get this stitched together. It's cut out, the toile has been done and fitted so it should be fairly straight forward..I'm making the black and white version, it has a V shaped back too.

Wish my waist looked like that... it definitely won't in a size 20!

Though all that fullness hides a multitude of sins!

Getting Ready...

.. There's nothing like being prepared..getting stuff ready for Christmas craft fairs..
I bought this set of tartlet tins from TKMaxx..(love that shop) with the idea of making vintage decorations.

I covered the bottoms of the diamond ones with Snowtex.. a fab product.While it's still wet sprinkle with Glamour Dust for added sparkle.

A cotton ball, tinsel,paper and a few twigs...

and you have a snowman..

The heart shaped tins are a work in progress.

UFO..No 2

I made this calico bird sometime last year... and the box a long time before that... so..

 I put the two together.. added a piece of ruffled linen ( I love that ruffler attachment. so much so I have one for each sewing machine)

The feet are alphabet blocks from The Pound Shop....two down and a few more to go!
