Well, incase you’ve missed it… it’s the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee weekend, which not only means 2 extra days to add to the weekend, but time for celebrations. We are hoping to see the flotilla on the Thames but given the look of the weather I’m not too sure whether we’ll make it or not, especially with me still on crutches. In the meantime I have been making lots of red, white and blue things which is also apt for the soon to be Olympics. Above are some of my faves for supporting the very British celebrations for the Jubilee and also for several countries in the Olympics.
Have a fab Sunday wherever you are.
I’ve decided that my time might be more productive if I do tasks in bulk, so I spent a good day just cutting out patterns from my stack of fabric which was also more economical with the fabric as I could get as many patterns out as possible but also highlights which colours I’m running low on (yes with my fabric obsession it’s difficult to imagine me running out of any fabric!) Now time to start sewing, so if there are any colour requests before they start going into my shops then please let me know.
Well it’s been a stressful 24 hours with my hospital appointment yesterday when I was told it would be another 4 weeks before I can weight bear and then tough physio at 8am this morning resulting in the current aches and pains. So, what do I do to combat this and stop feeling sorry for myself? Creative new ideas of course! Above are some of my new creations made with great patterns from patternpatti on etsy – bibs and burp cloths to be combined with my baby booties to make gift sets, and there are some more ideas in the pipeline so watch this space. I’d love to hear your thoughts and any suggestions for any other additions.
Have a great afternoon,
It’s been a while since I’ve had time to blog about things other than handmade wedding-ness so today I’m taking the opportunity to do a quick Folksy Friday. Most of you who read my blog will know that if I haven’t got at least one creative project on the go in my spare time then there is something wrong. To get over coming back down to earth with a large bump on return from our honeymoon there was only one thing for it – to throw myself into a new challenge by attempting to make some baby booties. Don’t ask me why I chose this as I honestly don’t know and have never made them or any type of clothing before in my life, maybe it was my love of fabrics and amazing purchases in Malaysia (including some batik pens… can you guess what the next project will be??) or maybe it was getting married and everyone asking about starting a family. Whatever the reason I had so much fun experimenting with fabric and making 2 pairs of baby booties on a Saturday afternoon when very jetlagged aso watch this space for more on this. If you can’t guess today’s topic for my Folksy Friday then read on:
Spotty Dotty – booties (these are adorable, and I admire anyone who can knit or crotchet)
Seamingly Possible – baby booties (the boldness of these is fab)
Booties by Dannie - retro trainer baby booties (great to see a unique take on baby booties)
Have a fab weekend whether that involves children, creativeness or just chilling. Any feedback or comments are always welcome.
