Sew,sew,sew....

Good afternoon, hope it's a good day for you... Just a quick one today, a kind of 'mid-weeker' if you like...I recently purchased this fabric from EmpressMills,I do love the place, and I have to say the service is brilliant........[no I am not on commission to say that...haha...] Also I have read about Bosal but never tried it, well you have to, so I did...I adore the stuff, makes life so easy, only problem, my machine had a hard time taking the thickness once I was trying to sew every section together, but I struggled on bit by bit, the lines are abit wonky for sure, I mean some are a shameful sight, but I love this big happy shopper.........
Now if you see one of these on the sight, you will see how fabulous it can really look, but hey, never say I didn't try... I had enough Bosal over to make a nice place mat too, that was easy to sew, give it a try, it gives a firm yet soft feel and more body..... Thanks for being here...oh and if any of you have this template on …

Play day....

Hello my lovelies, I hope you've had a really good week-end, it finally snowed last night, the first I knew was the sound of snowballs hitting my windows and a laugh that I love most...[MIA]...she was with her dad and Lucas and they ended up with a few neighbours out too, she promised if I opened the door she would not throw anything...do I need to say more....lol...a few short years ago I would have been out like a shot...oh I love the snow....right then, why am I here....this afternoon I had a play time, mixed media which I haven't done properly in so long, I have to say I have enjoyed this so much, I had no plan, just began with a small board and from there it went...what do you think...I mean really...!!!!!! I have painted with acrylics, thrown finnabar mica at it and sploshed and splashed all over the place, the flowers were all wild orchid the clock die is TH, brick stencil Clarity, everything else, which includes nails, from stash....  close ups  Can you spot the penci…

CraftyCatz challenge #307....word art

Morning all, welcome to my blog... Another week over and still no sign of this rain letting up, anyone have a boat they don't want..lol....maybe not as funny as it sounds.... OKAY This week at CraftyCatz, it is our lovely Tracey's turn, she has decided on WORDART...now that's a nice change isn't it... We have a fabulous sponsor for you, who also provided our images too,  My card is very simply all fur coat and no knickers as they used to say... DP is from a BoBunny paper pack that was a lovely freebie in Cardmaking Mag last year....ribbon from stash and the sentiment is, of course from Bugaboo, thank you... *************** On a personal note We are having to say Good-bye to one of our favourite team mates today, and that's Anna you will be missed, she is such a fun person but her life is making changes and that's the way it goes I think.....stay in touch... *********************************************** You all have a wonderful week-end and take care....

Sewing project...

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well and enjoying the week so far... I have got yet another chest infection, I think I should join the 'Sod it' club, what can you do...!!!!!! OKAY.. I have twiddled about with bits of quilting, mainly bags, I am NO WAY, much good at this, let me just state that fact, but it is something I can sit and do when I feel not so good and can't colour as the fumes get on my chest...SO...I began doing this little ditty before Christmas and then it got pushed out while we did the whole family thing...as you do....but I have managed to finish it, and I am chuffed, it is not a huge project, and 'Real' quilters will wonder why I am so pleased with myself, but I am, I love the fabrics and the design, each square is around 10inch so you can get the gist, nice for a baby even... I backed it in white cotton and edged with a satin border covered some buttons with matching fabric too.... So there we are....off to do another project ..will keep you po…

Quick post...

Good afternoon all, I hope you are enjoying the week-end wherever you are and whatever the weather...!!!!!! I made this little Tag for a friend last year and never blogged it, now I now opinion is divided about certain images, but I really like this, she looks so sweet... I cut a tag out roughly by hand, covered it with some gingham material I had left over, added ribbon from dovecraft and a little smile sentiment I bought at Christmas, cut a tree die and placed it to hang out at the bottom, the Sherry Ann Baldy  image, was coloured with flex markers as per....
I feel bad that it's not a better picture but what can you do sometimes.......Anyway, I hope you like, she is so cute....lol....
Thanks so much for your visit,I seem to have lost a couple of followers, now that's so sad, I would rather they said why, if I have upset anyone than I am so sorry, I would never hurt any ones feelings and I don't get into gossip....but there you have it, just happens I guess.......oh yes…

CraftyCatz Challenge #306....all about flowers...

Good morning to you all.. Hope you all enjoyed the festivities but are you as happy as I am to be back to normal, it wears me out these days....did enjoy the family and pressies though, so I shouldn't moan.... Okay then, down to business....our first challenge of 2016 is hosted by our lovely boss lady Carol...she very much wants to see some flowers, be they stamped or digi...actually it will be a lovely change to be reminded that the sun will shine and the incessant rain will stop and flowers will bloom....[talk about needing a boat]..... We are so pleased to have two fab sponsors to kick start the year, and they are..  AND Here is the card I made, using a sponsor image almost everything is from stash, with the exception of the banner which is from WOJ sale....sad about that ending....hope you like, personally I really was not happy with it, I just couldn't get it to look as I felt it should....anyway, I live in hope my mojo will return in the weeks to come...keep your finge…
