Couldn't Resist

I went to the craft show at Aintree Racecourse last weekend with one of my daughters. As is the norm I spent most of my pennies on my daughter (which I am always very pleased to do) especially as she has now got an interest in a craft. She has expressed a wish to do quilting which has made me very excited at the thought of many happy hours choosing fabric and helping her begin her project. Can't wait!

I did actually spend something on myself as I could not resit buying these craft bags to store some of my bits and pieces. My excuse was that it will help tidy my workroom! I just love the colour. I also bought some wire and beads to knit with. Petrol/Kingfisher blue must be my colour at the moment.

Evening Bag

This is a little evening bag I made for Textiles for Two. I really had fun making this. If you would like to see the back of the bag please visit Textiles for Two blog.

Jewellery Swap for Unlimited Textiles

One of the swaps this month for Unlimited Textiles is a piece of jewellery. I have made this necklace and it will be winging its way to my swap partner Chris some time next week. I hope she likes it. I trapped threads and snippets of fabric between water soluble fabric then free machined all over.

Bag For Textiles For Two

It took a while but suddenly things clicked into place and I finished the bag for Textiles for Two. Perhaps it has something to do with being on holiday from work for a couple of weeks and being able to play without feeling guilty that there are a million and one other things to do. I just love working with fabric and thread and wish there were more hours in the day!
