What a massive year it has been.

Merry Christmasand onwards to anamazingNEW YEAR

What a massive year it has been.

No time to blog as I would like, no time to do sewing for me like I would have liked, no time to even watch silly movies, time to make changes.

Changes involving closing down “Fleurs Adventure In Sewing Mayhem” and Fleurs Sewing Mayhem”, time to concentrate on creating amazing clay creations, time to concentrate on getting the “Hills Fabric and Craft De-Stash” to be heard about by more people, time to get the Artisan Markets happening in the hills of Perth.

Time to get my schedule a lot tighter to fit in more as I want to sew, no I WILL sew in fact. Time to get that list sorted of what to make. List is sorted for events at least, and I have 7 booked in for next year (that is exciting).

So looking forward to the new year ahead and all it has to offer.

So to all the amazing creatives out and about MERRY CHRISTMAS and onwards to an amzing NEW YEAR.

DSCN2584I thought it was time I introduced Tinka, short for Tinkerbell our big kitty, there are some days like this one when you dare to disturb ones blessed sleep and you get a look like this and others where you are the beez knees.                                                                 DSCN2583

Mothers Day Knitters Bag

I must be sweet on my other half as he asked me to make his mum a bag for Mothers Day for her knitting, one that she could cart in the car with her and that would fit a few (nearly said bales of wool, hmm they maybe a tad large) balls of wool in and her needles.

Over to the stash I headed, with a vague memory of some of this fabric left over from the kimono that I made him, and yes a win enough for the outside and for a pocket inside, the inside is lined in dark blue linen with an extra-large pocket inside for storage.

I winged this one without a pattern and I for one think it came out okay. Lets hope it passes the test of  aknitter.

More Mask Mayhem

Now that is what I call a half win, the original had purple painted across the face and around the eye sockets, I am guessing without reading my notes that i used two different firing temp paints, still a winning look though so can not discount it after all.

Another Potters Apron

Yes you could say I am slightly besotted with this idea, they work so well after all, and this one done in a lighter weight denim with a linen backing and leatherette detailing.

And yes that is a male mannequin with some great pecks on show being used, the normal male model was unavailable at the time, so needs must.

This will be on my website this month as well, so to buy this stunning piece get in quickly.
