Totally Disgusted with myself....
It has been far too long since Ive updated this blog. I have been creative of late but not enough, using excuse after excuse. Well no more.... For starters I'm trying to revive my business, so at the mo(baby steps) making sure I have enough stock for one or two ventures up, into the City Above.
And to start... Some lovely scarves lol. x

Hadnt thought about blogging this type of crafting that I do before. Every year I tend to make a big affair of Hallowe'en. This year I struggled making up my first costume idea and was left with burlap bags. Batman's foe Scarecrow was suggested when so many others coming to my party told me the were going as other villains. Recutting, sewing up, handsewing, a little fabric glue and acryllic paint and VOILA!
And on that note.....anyone wishing to purchase my only-worn-once mask.....£20-30?

Well, so I have been off the edge of the map the past month or two, but the muse is back! Started a new job, and they asked us to "tart up" our staff room and since I had plans for this picture, I made a legend come to life......yeah I know, its a little ........surreal. Im calling it tacky fabulous art.
Heres hoping I can alter more and that people will buy from me. Fingers crossed. x

This was a little project for myself, labour of love. I often wondered what it would be like to wear my own Coat of Arms so decided to "tart up" my own design, using the ancient clan Davidson Tartan that my mother had given me from the remnants of her wedding outfit, some lovely washed out denim and some well selected threads. The crescent moon represents the Clark coat of arms and the stag for the Davidson's. I'm still deciding where this should go, currently making myself some moss green vambraces....might go on them, we shall see and I will be sure to show you all. x
Friend at work was looking for something different and unique, for his girlfriend who lives abroad. We went through a couple of suggestions and then came up with a love cushion, why not. With Valentines looming nearer it sounded like a great plan.... -___-. Can I just say for the record, having never made a cushion from scratch was bad enough(without a pattern) but using bondaweb sheet to stick down hearts.....never again, lol.
I was very pleased with the end result, although rough at some points it really had a very middle america quaint handmade feel to it. Would gladly make more and now having done the basic design I definitely see where I can improve on embelishment and cushion shape.
