Hi girls, I've got a little bit of Spring going on here, I picked up some daffs and a pot of blue hyacinth bulbs in Morrisons yesterday and its brightened the kitchen up a bit because outside the snow has melted and everything looks dirty.
I've been a right busy bee this past week, first I got out my lovely CK needlecase and button tin that I got for christmas from my sister.
Although it was pretty enough I thought it needed one of my wibbly wobbly jelly buttons on the bow !!
Out come the glue gun and I covered these two books with thick wadding and then glued the fabric over the top, if you're not careful with the hot glue it goes all over your fingers as you're sticking it down, I always manage to burn myself as I'm a messy devil!!!
Next it was time to stitch myself a little angel out of a pink Liberty fabric, I made a few at christmas to go in stockings but didn't have time to do one for myself so now I have one hanging on the wall and she's lovely with her vintage button stitched onto her pocket.
Third on the list was "cushions" and I made a few, this is a raspberry toile (why do I think of Laurence Llewellyn Bowen when I say toile???) with cream bobble fringing round it, and the next one is the parisian street scenes.
I made it into a thin bolster and put a piece of old lace along the top then put both cushions on Alexa's CK bedding to brighten it up a bit.
A little pin cushion with some lovely red white and blue ribbon and a couple of pearly "heart" buttons, and a keyring.
I couldn't bear to throw away the scraps so I cut out a few scenes and stuck them onto a piece of CK pink spotty cotton and stuck both on luggage labels with a couple of buttons to make a few pretty tags.
and the last tiny bit went on the top of this button jar with a heart button, and a piece of green ribbon pretties it up.
Didn't I do well, all that out of a little over a fat quarter, I'm never happier than when I'm playing with fabric and buttons and I could quite happily play all day but then I'd probrably miss working...NOT... hehe.
I've started on this weeks "sewing/making" but more on that next week as I'm off to work now,
Lots of love, Lucey xxx
