My creative space

Its been a few weeks but Ive not had much to show. Two little offerings today with more to follow. I finally have the sewing mojo back and Im hoping its here to stay as Ive a few presents and orders to complete.

First of all, my lovely niece asked me to cover a scrapbook album for her. She's doing a school project and couldn't find a scrapbook with a cover she liked. I was more than happy to do it. I love making new things. She chose the fabric (from my 'shop') and asked that I include her name somehow. I suggested some embroidery which she was happy with (love hearts were the prerequisite). I found the love heart pattern somewhere on the internet (i'm so bad at linking things back as Im bad at remembering where the images came from). Im happy to report that said niece was very pleased with the result. Its also given me an idea for christmas presents but more on that later.

For some reason the iron on interfacing puckered the material. No amount of ironing would un-pucker. I guess that would teach me to apply interfacing with a really hot iron.

Finally have a chance to use macro on my camera.

Also gifted was this set of 3 (4th was delivered the next day) place mats for a friend who was celebrating a housewarming, birthday and Australian citizenship! I should have possibly made the place mats alittle more Aussie but they were well received.

Other than that, sewing has been slow. On the cards though are Christmas presents. Its getting exciting now with the lead up to christmas. I wanted to make the girls an Advent calendar (my girls still have no concept of what next week, next month or next year are) but never got around to it. Maybe next year...
