"Make" stuff

Okay ...
 so I've been asked,
every so often,
where do I get the bits and bobs
that I make things with.
Well ...
it's just ''stuff'' I have
in my sewing room :)
Stuff I've collected over the years,
stuff that I think
''this will come in handy one day".
Some of it's stuff
that I make up with a bit of stamping
or extra stitching.
Some of it is stuff
from when my Mum had a clear out,
and some is stuff
I've found in op shops.
Then there's stuff left over from
"The Stitchery" days,
and not forgetting the stuff
that you just have to buy,
not knowing what you will do with it,
but knowing that you can't do without it :)
was thinking ...
I'll put together a little collection of
for ''making''.

I've popped some of these on the sale page,
along with lots more pictures of what's inside
the ''make'' bag.

Now the only thing
about spending the day
playing around with lace
and stamps
and fabric
is that it really is a total
sensory overload.
So many ideas,
so not enough time :)
A nice way to spend my day off,
And now I will finish it with a
dentist appointment!!!
See you

Just one of those days

That's what it is today,
just one of those days.
It's wintry and dull outside,
and I was going to spend the day ''making''
but got side-tracked,
and my head is a little
pre-occupied with thoughts
of stuff
so I might leave the ''making''
until later.
I'm not quite sure which project
to start on :)
I made these a couple of days ago.
This one first...
... and then another one
'cos I quite liked how
the first one
 turned out :)

I'm not actually using them
inside the wardrobe ...
 yet ...
purely decorative at this stage:)
Something else I've been working on
over the past few weeks...
...using my favourite
bits and pieces of course...
...lots of hearts...

...and lots of fun making it :)

Aren't these the most beautiful colours -
hydrangeas' autumn tones.


... I know which project
to start now :)
See you
