Brightening up a blind

Back in the summer I bought some gorgeous pearl trim with the intention of adding it to the blinds in my craft room in order to transform them from bland to beautiful. I'm so pleased with the result

More makerings ...

Can't believe I've begun the year so inspired. I'm now wishing I didn't have to go back to work and that I could stay at home and create all day like I have been for a large part of the Christmas holiday. It really has felt like I've been following my bliss. Anyway we needed a doorstop so I got busy and here's my little owl makering ...

A very creative start to 2014

Happy New Year to anyone that might be reading this - I hope you had a good one. This year has been very creative so far. One of my aims (rather than resolutions) this year, is to complete the projects I've started and never got round to finishing. For example, in 2012 I started a writing course with the Writing Bureau, so far I've only completed two assignments - I have until 2015 to finish the other assignments (I think there are 12). Secondly, when I was about 25, I began to make three quilted cushion covers and they subsequently found themselves in loft for the last 20 years. This Christmas I pulled them out of the loft and yesterday I completed the two duck panels and made them into cushions - here they are
Here is the star patchwork panel that needs to be completed
I began the Lifebook 2014 course run by Tamara Laporte today and started with the Week One Warm up exercise which was designed to make us loosen up, explore colour and some background techniquest to get over the fear of the white page. This was my result.
Finally I've been making a few pairs of fingerless gloves while watching the TV the last couple of evenings.
If only I always had the time and resources to be this create .... my dream :)
