Well I finally managed to transfer the photos from my camera to the computer. Not the way I normally do it which is automatic as soon as I plug in the camera, but a slightly more long winded version. Still mustn't grumble (especially not when G's around as he's now taking the "I suppose you think it's my fault" attitude!! well yes I do!!) at least I can get at my photos. I was begining to think I'd need a new camera or computer or both! But major expense has been averted.
So I can now share what I've been doing the last week (or so).
Remember I was saying about my Vista bargains
Well add those to the paper takeaway bags I ordered for the last craft fair but arrived late (and only cost 99p plus 2.99 p+p) from ebay
And voila you have personalised bags at a bargain price
I'm quite impressed for next to no effort and now have 50 (ever the optomist) ready for next weeks fair.
Okay what else, oh yes Daisy! As most of you will know she loves dressing up and has a vast collection of coats and collars (made by me). In the summer she wears alot of bandanas and always gets excited when I pull one out of the drawer. Well some of them are getting a little worn and faded so I decided to make her a few more.
This is definately her favourite although I think we'll keep it for best, after all us girls all love a bit of CK. I also made her a stack of primary colour ones for everyday wear but forgot to photo them.
I used to do alot of cross stitch but then got side tracked onto other things, but when I saw last months cross stitcher mag could not resist doing this
It is adorable and there is also a vw camper, a beetle, a bicycle and a caravan but I decided just to do the mini to start. I'm now dithering wether to just frame it in a white square ikea box frame or to make it into a cushion? Think the cushion is winning but still dithering..
Next up teacup pincushions. I bought heaps of tea cups etc awhile back and although I have used a few for candles I can't sell candles at the craft fair (the organiser have a candle stall!) so decided to make some pincushions. Having asked Vicki for some advise this is the results..
If I said I was pleased with them it would be an understatement, I really enjoyed making them especially all the little flower embellishments etc and hope they sell well so I can make some more.. only problem I'm not sure what to charge for them, any ideas?
Have also enjoyed making cushions but think I'm getting abit carried away
I have another 6 covers ready to finish too........
Okay and last but definately not least my latest bag
Yes more CK
Right thats all folks, now need a serious cup of coffee then try and squeeze in a couple of hours sewing before G and Daisy get up then it will be into the garden for yet more weeding/digging etc yipee.....not
