Hi everyone, sorry I've not been around much lately I think I've just got out of the habit of blogging at the moment. I haven't been to idle though as I have been adding my A to Z photo challenge photographs to my photography blog
and I have also been busy photographing my friend Barbara's delicious cupcakes and cakes as and when she makes them. Barbara has a facebook page showcasing her talents so if you are on facebook don't forget to pop over and say hello!
Crafting wise I have been busy too, operation "tidy up the workroom" is still in full swing and I have managed to sell some bits on ebay, if you have any early copies of Mollie Makes and you no longer want them then they fetch a very good price on ebay!!! I have also listed some more fabrics on ebay because as much as I would like to keep it all I can't so it needs to go to a new home!!!
On the making front I have been beavering away on the box of unfinished bags that I found whilst tidying up my workroom here are a few of my now finished projects.
The lovely Helen from Handbags by Helen recently put a request out asking for a pincushion to save her poor doggy's paws so we agreed to do a swap. I made a pin cushion, well two (you can never have too many pincushions!!) and an "ironing friend". in exchange for a pretty box pouch.
Here is a collage of some of the pin cushions and ironing friends that I made I have sent the cream floral/turquoise one to Helen and have listed the others on Misi.
And this is the pouch that is on its way to me!!!
I have also been working on a few secret swap makes, these haven't been received yet so I can't show you at the moment but I will post pictures as soon as I can.
On the subject of swaps I am taking part in the
and have been partnered with the lovely Kezzie, whom I seem to have terrified with my craftiness, so pop over and say Hello and please, please put her mind at rest about swapping with me, I'm very friendly really. Swapping is all about the giving and receiving whether handmade or thrifted, beginner or experienced crafter all sent with love and friendship across the miles. Kezzie are you listening !!
On that note I am off to bed as this post has taken me a little longer than anticipated to finish, that's the result of not posting for several weeks!!! I promise not to leave it too long next time!! and I have just remembered lots of other things I forgot to mention in this post but if I tell you about them now it won't be worth me going to bed!!! Night Night!
