project 2

 I had a few extra days off over the past couple of weeks. And made another table runner. I had fun making this pattern again. I made a few changes to the size of the stripes of fabric. And added an extra square/diamond. It ended up being a little thinner than the first one but about as long. I used some different wadding too. It was slightly thicker...probably too thick.
 It's a bit wonky but I decided that we could keep it and enjoy it on our table at Christmas! I'm probably going to make another one in non Christmas fabric to enjoy all year round!
2 projects down
26 to go! :)

mini book final take

And it's done!

A lot more colour in the final few pages! It has been fun completing and I'm glad to have it done so I can enjoy looking at it and focus on some other projects. I've been busy sewing today which has been wonderful. 4 day long weekends...2 weeks in a row are the best!

take 4

 Getting around to printing these off has stalled this project a bit...but now that it's done the end of this project is in sight! 
 I do enjoy this mini book documentation. It does appeal to me more than the usual scrap booking.
 Bit wordy here but important to get it all down!
One more take and then I think I'll be done! Check out the other instalments here, here and here!

project one

We got invited to a wedding last weekend. It was lovely, a real treat to be able to celebrate with Lisa and Glen their special day as they commit to each other and say their vows. I thought I'd get a little crafty for their present. I first saw this idea of the date for their wedding on Elise's blog...surprise surprise! She and her husband were gifted something similar for their wedding. I thought I'd do this for Lisa and Glen.
 And of course some magnets for their fridge. This was a very simple project but a lot of fun to create for the lovely couple!
 And here are the happy couple. Glen is a farmer and hopefully you can see in the photo the tractor on top of the cake! It was very cute and appropriate!
So one project down....27 to go!

in the etsy store

I bitten the bullet and started to go through some of the mountains of clothes I own. We are going to be moving at the end of the year, who knows where yet but we will not be living in this unit after mid December. So I've started to think about going through and de cluttering and culling!
So I'm "diversifying" my etsy shop a bit and listing some of the dresses I have who need a new home!
 All found at the OP shop but too good to go back!
 If you're interested check out my etsy store here or on the side bar with the pictures of the badges! It'll take you right there!
 And of course there are the usual badges and magnets available too! :)

mini book take 3

I'm hitting my stride with this project to get it finished. I did notice but this second had a lot of buff coloured pages...broken up with a couple of postcards...that had lots of neutral colours!
But then BAM! beautful orange!
I'm looking forward to finishing this up to get onto my 28 projects...maybe this is technically my first? :)
