I've been making, but I need to make some more if I've a hope in Christmas of earnng a living in the latter part of the year!
Another 'postcard' collage
These are all that are left from last years decorations, can't quite see that wonderful deep burgundy velvet in the pic - I shall be making some more of these, as they sell (slowly) thru the year too.
I need lots more like these
One of the brooches is going to my little goddaughter in Cape Town, SA
And some squares
The first 2 are rubbish out of the bin (at work (I'm such a shite hawk!) then an adaptation of a card I was making, next I finally tried a tecnique from the episode on Talking Threads by Kim Thittichai - I bought a magnum icecream, well, I had to didn't I? & ironed it under some baking parchment, watched it shrivel up then highlighted it with..., yes gold. The m is on the end of the ice cream stick, M is also my loved one's nickname for me. Inspired by Jill, I filled a clear bit of rubbish with some tiny things laying on my desk & ironed it (under some baking parchment) Love the way everything sticks in place. Last, more clearing up my sewing table (a tiny bit) with some needle felting. I've already broken 2 needles, I was warned! (how can little bits of fluff be so strong?)
Thanks for your comment, Angeline. I've tried again to add you to my blogroll but it just won't save it. This link works here, tho, so when you all have a mo, do visit!
Right, off to 'make' some more...& have a coffee in that sunshine before it dissapears.
