hmmm... not quite sure

Well as i said yesterday i was messing about with my sewing machine yesterday, These are some of the things i made. Firstly the first one.. an owl... a cat... i'm not quite sure! It was supposed to be a owl but it was the first time i have made anything like this and when i showed my 2 year old she shouted kitty cat so i suppose thats what it will be.

Next are some cross stitch cushions, i have has the stitched bits for ages and thought i'd make them up into cushions to take to the craft fair with me next saturday.

And lastly this crochet flower brooch, i love crochet and this was the first one i had made of this type.
So i'm just washing my fabric ready to make some more bits so watch this space.

wrap bracelets

Well i have finally managed to get myself a new pair of memory wire cutters as my old ones had called it a day. So i spent last night making these bracelets, i'm pretty made up with them. Firstly is this red one with purple and pink beads.

Next is this white or clear one, perfect for christmas.

And lastly this brown one which i used up my oddment of brown beads to make it and i really like it.

Today i have been messing with my sewing machine, making up some cross stitch cushions from some cover kits i have done and have been lying around for ages. I'm going to take them to my craft fair in 2 weeks time. I also found some snow white fabric so i made a cushion with that i just have to stuff it and stitch it up and it'll be done. So you know what tomorrows pictures are going to be :-D.

good week so far

Had a good week so far this week, in my last post i put about how i was making earrings with 50% of the sale going towards the poppy appeal well i have had a great response and have made £14 so far. Yesterday i decided i would also add bookmarks to the poppy appeal sale and i have sold 2 of them. I now only have 1 pair of earrings and 1 bookmark remaining so get them while you can.
Below are some bits i have made firstly being a childs bell charm bracelet. The bell charm is santa i think it is sooo cute.

Next are these silver plated earrings i also love. I called them snowqueen because of the beads.

And here is a picture of the poppy appeal bookmark.

poppy appeal

I have decided that i'm going to be making various jewellery, cards and other crafty bits and bobs with 50% of the sale going to various charities. I'm not sure how well it will go as i know alot of people (me included) have trust issues when it comes to people we don't know collecting for charities but i can assure you that i am trustworthy and the money will be donated to the named charity.
This are my first piece which are silver plated earwires with red glass pearls and tibetan silver flowers. they cost £4 with 50% going towards the poppy appeal.
Once i have a few pieces i will make a extra page on my website for chartity pieces.

happy halloween (for yesterday)

Happy halloween (for yesterday) i did mean to make this post yesterday but we had lots on including going to view some houses so i never got round to it.
So this is what we have been up to over the halloween period. Firstly i made these 2 trick or treat bags for the kids. I'm quite surprised how well they turned out as it's the first time i have made anything like this.

Next i carved the pumpkin with the help of my daughter flicking pumpkin seeds all over the carpet lol.

Then we went trick or treating, we have learn to only knock on the door with decorations up or they won't answer so the kids had fun and i thought they looked great.

So next stop is christmas......
