Whats a girl to do when all you get is rain ? the answer is easy craft of course.
That's what I have been doing over the past few days.
I have been working on some ideas for the Christmas Fair in the village this October.
Bottle Aprons to glam up that bottle of brew that's been given as a gift, I have about 8 different designs worked out, they are all embroidered onto felt I thought £2 each.
Scented Gingerbread Men Pomander's, they will be impregnated with a Christmas spice oil £2.50
Pocket Tissue Holders I am doing them in a selection of colours and they come with a pack of tissues inside, £3
Candy Cane Mice and Owls £1.50
So that is what I have been working on the past few days, I have some other ideas as well.
When I went to the quilt festival the other week I was really taken with a quilted panel on display there, I didn't buy it but have thought about it since getting home, I took the details of the company selling it and the other day I went onto there web site and it was there at the same price as it was at the show, I ordered it in fact I ordered the kit.
This is the panel Autumn Harvest its about 4 ft long so difficult to do it justice in a photo
The kit contained everything needed to complete the panel, wadding, backing fabric, binding fabric, gold gems and gold thread. £22 from Stitch Witch
There is no chance it will get done this year a project for the new year perhaps. :-)
