Hi everyone. I hope you are all having a lovely weekend. Mine is a bit mixed. I have during my journey made some amazing friends and I have come to a conclusion. Really really crappy things seem to happen to the most wonderful people. I know mine is not to reason why but it is what I have been asking God/Universe/ Ultimate power of your choice.
In other words I have most certainly been trying to reason why. I have no answer yet..I will let you know if God/Universe/Ultimate power of your choice bothers to answer me.
So while asking the meaning of life which is quite difficult without any little white mice around (Hitchhikers Guide to the Universe), I have also been very very crafty.
After making Jack Sparrow for Deena (Parsley: he is going to have an upgrade to look a little more like Mr. Depp), I was asked to make some child friendly owls. I try to avoid making things to order (which is why Deena has had to wait months and months) because it scares me! I am crap with the sewing machine..seriously, it scares the heck out of me. And if I have to make something then it has to be of a certain standard and wow...the pressure!
But I put my big girl pants on again (they seem to keep falling off for some reason) and here are Tweedle Twitt and Tweedle Twoo.
Hope they are ok!
They are very child friendly they tell me and never eat a whole one ahoy!!!!!
I have also been perfecting my fabric baskets. Yes, I will happily make these for sponsorship donations..but as a wonderful friend told me, fabric has a life. It moves. Well my fabric is blooming organic and practically boogies and dances away in my hands! So if you are expecting complete perfection...well, I think you know where this is going!
I ran out of natural linen but experimenting with other base fabrics.
Right, well I think that is me done. I have been so busy sewing not a lot more has happened. I will offer another free chart on Friday for the Friday Feebie and have some ideas for prim charts I would like to try. Friday's is sorted out. It won't be American based but has been made for all of you who are having a hard time right now..and there seems to be a lot of us at the moment.
So I will love you and leave you and hope to share more crafty goodness with you soon. I am so dying to get one with some cross stitch! However, right now I feel a calling from my knitting needles!
Have a good week xxxxxxx
