Show and Tell Monday

Another week, finally painted all the storage for my workroom. As the walls are lemon thought the green would compliment, have decided not to label but to number with a chart on the wall with what is in each drawer. Got DH sorting through the flowers for the small drawers, made him put them into separate colours, well he did offer to help. Now onto the feathers, that should be fun!

Did do some sewing this week, finished an order for some egg cosies and completed 2 cafetiere cosies. Now the painting is done must get down to some more making for the 11th Fair.

Show and Tell Monday

I recently got a mini quilt published in the Joanna Sheen monthly newsletter and thought I would share with all the Pink Ladies. I used images from her CD Rom 'Fashion Boutique' printed onto fabric with other fabric added and some embellishments.

'Readers Card of the Month - Caroline Nash

I would once again like to thank everyone who has sent in cards for inclusion in our “reader’s card of the month” feature. They are all so lovely and we enjoy looking at each and every one. When I receive them they are kept in a file so if you have sent one and it hasn’t appeared yet, that doesn’t mean it won’t.
Obviously, we can’t do this without you, the readers, and so once again, I would like to invite any of you to send in a scan or photo of a card they have made and an explanation on how you made it. If your card is featured, you will receive a £10 Joanna Sheen gift Voucher which is a lovely keepsake as well as useful. So, here is how to enter your card for the newsletter “Card of the month”. Send a clear photograph or scan plus an “in depth breakdown” on how you made it (as much information as you can) to if you have made the card for a special occasion, please do tell us about it too.

This month we are actually showing something different from the norm. Instead of a card, we have a mini quilt which is absolutely gorgeous.

March’s “Reader’s “quilt” of the month” is from Caroline Nash

I chose to spend my voucher on another CD Rom from Joanna called 'Messy Rabbit'

Check out her website Joanna Sheen she is a talented lady and produces the most wonderful Victorian CD roms, although Messy Rabbit is not of this era, he and his friends are so sweet thought they would add an extra dimension to my work. she also ships internationally.

Remember to check out the other Make Mine Pink blogs, with a special thank you to Marie from 'Savon Marie' for her testimonial on my behalf.

Show and Tell Monday

Last week was busy and did not get as much done as I would have liked. Managed to make 2 mini totes in a lovely blue/yellow/white patchwork effect fabric and found on Sunday 2 beautiful lemon/white glitter and feather roses to add to the handles. The roses are detachable and can be worn on the wrist or in your hair.

Still doing the big tidy up of my workroom and sewing room, as fast as I move a allocate materials, another pile appears, think this is going to take some time.

Check out the "March Into Spring" Shop Hop from March 16 through March 21, 2009 at the Make Mine Pink Boutiques along with all the Pink Blogs.

Monday Show and Tell with MMP

I finally got around to making myself an over shirt, have been planning this for some time and am really pleased with the finished garment, particularly as I was able to use fabric from my really old stash. Can't wait until the next garment.

Did do some work eventually and made these Parisian themed door hangers from some of the left over fabric, cannot waste anything. aslo cut out some other goodies still on the sewing room table, to be revealed in due course.

Check out the other MMP blogs and all the lovely creations that have taken place in the last week.

Off to Ikea this week for some storage solutions for my workroom, will get sorted one day, will have to stop buying more stuff!
