Little Trews



I have now finished the little trousers I have been making for the grandchildren. They fit well and look really cute.
The kids are not fussed about them but me and the Mums like them.

My Creative Space


My creative space has been full of making these little purses with my overlocker (that's serger to some folks).
They are really pleasing to make and are great for gifts. I can see I will be stuck making these for some time!

Copyright Warning


My son borrowed some Dub and Reggae records from my brother. There was some really good tunes in there, but the best bit for me had to be this copyright warning. Made me smile!

My Creative Space


My creative space today is in a bit of a mess. Everything is up in the air, we are decorating and nothing is in it's right place. My creative space does not feel creative to me at all. It feels like something to be endured and can't wait to get to the other side of it!

The worst part is not being able to get out my machine and get on with so many projects that I have lined up. The first being some trousers that I am making for my grandchildren, I have 3 little pairs of trousers that are part way through, I am so excited about getting them finished it makes me impatient. Can you tell that I am fed up with it!!

Plus no hope of finding the camera at the mo' so found a pic of a huge bunch of roses that Will brought home from work for me. He had been asked to remove these as part of a hedge he had to take out. Too nice to chuck away!

More creative spaces over at kirsty's. Hopefully next week I will be less grumpy!

My Creative Space




If you are one of my fans on facebook or you follow me on twitter you will have seen this already (sorry), but you know how it is, I can't stop going on about it because I am so excited about having made it!

I have made a felt Apple iPod Remote Control brooch.

The scenario is that it is cold outside, you have your hat, scarf, gloves and big coat on. iPod in your pocket. You want to change track or volume or skip a track you have to take your gloves off, fish around in your pocket get it out, change track or whatever, put it back then put your gloves back on.

With the felt Apple remote control, you stick your brooch on your coat and press either the left or right side of the apple:
    Play/Pause: Single click
    Next/Previous Track: Double click
    Next/Previous Album: Triple click
    Volume Up/Down: Press and hold

I just love it and will be making more designs for my etsy, folksy and coriandr shops.

Other creative space here, go and take a look at the many creative folks taking part.
