TA - DA, Purple Purple Purse is complete and ready for it's new owner. I am pleased with the outcome of this piece. I still don't know how to machine sew the lining into the bag and so I hand stitch all the way around the liner. whew what a job finally had to pull out my leather finger protector the tip of my middle finger is raw. Good news is my quilting stitches are getting better, practice makes perfect. Hope you enjoy…Continue
As requested a purple and black, but more purple purse. hmmmm,, I'm really enjoying the process.
The only thing planned is the color pallet and ofcourse I use the same handbag pattern. Everything else is an experiment and completely random. I hope she likes it.

Well, here it is, I just joined the stitchin fingers. And it would seem that I'm blogging, how crazy is that. But I just couldn't help myself, after sneaking around this site for weeks, looking at all the beautiful work. This seems to be a wonderful little corner of the internet, and I intend to make myself at home.

Yes! It feels as though I have been a Hare for a while, racing about letting my instinct guide me and hopping from one item to the next, despite whether it is finished or not. There is a joy in this, but limiting myself and concentrating on the one item does get faster results. The Star/?/Object is progressing nicely, the design side is sorted and I now have to create the accessory that goes with it. If you don't know what I'm talking about please take a look at my page…Continue

Out of the two pieces on my board, the second one is definitely more challenging! I could have played safe and finished the Christmas decoration quickly, but decided to plump for the Star/? (you'll have to wait to see what it really is)
On went the thinking cap and I found that at first, I couldn't make headway, this advanced planning just felt weird! I think I was rebelling against limiting myself to one piece, so I sketched what I had in mind onto an A3…Continue

I have a piece of Foamboard propped up in the spare bedroom, I laughingly call my workroom, and have put away all other pieces and unfinished stuff.
I have put myelf on a diet - in more ways than one! I am going to try limiting myself to pinning 3/4 items up there but how long this will last I do not know(the Foamboard that is, not the diet! Which,…Continue
Yes!! I have finished the first of my things to do, it was the totally beaded motif, a heart(It's amongst my page photos)
It took me three days on and off but I'm pleased and plan on putting it onto a book cover.
Now, a confession, when it was time to pin the third piece onto my 'to do' board, I couldn't find it! So much for organization! (not saying the word 'overcrowded' but my cupboards are looking rather swell!
Now that the old year is coming to a close, I have decided to make a conscious decision to try and bring some organisation into my life. For quite a while I have always followed that inner voice when creating things, I have tried the methodical approach but found that I felt quite restricted when faced with a structured, step by step plan.
I don't know why, but once I begin something there comes a point(at a different stage with each project)when…Continue
