TPP Week 3- After watching Molly the Barn Owl for a while I thought an Owl Postcard was in order!! Not quite a Barn Owl though!! I'll have to make one for my Dad too this week and he is an Owl fanatic.
Also managed to finish a Felted bag as a surprise present and stitch a piece for one of my Moley exchanges on ATCs and Illustrated ATCs. Well, OK almost finished, I just have to do some handstitching. Managed to fit in some minimal gardening too amongst everything else and Fox and Co enjoyed their time outside!

In case you don't know I have THE most adorable nephew in the world! His name is Thomas but unfortunately he lives in England and I live in Canada. I was there in March for a week visiting and had a brilliant time. He is very smart and can already say Hippopotamus and experimental which is pretty darned good for a 2 year old! Last week when I was talking to my Sis on Facebook (as you do!!) I decided I would make him a postcard and mail it to him! Of course from my perspective, once it is mailed it should be there the next day! However the mail between Canada and the UK is not that fast, and we are still waiting for it to arrive. In the meantime I decided that it would be fun to make one every week and that way he wont forget his Aunty Sharon!!
Of course my postcards are in fabric, although at some point he may get a watercolour one! So watch this space and lets see how I do on the one a week pledge! Theoretically it will keep me blogging!!!

Well Ok it is January 10th already but Happy New Year anyway! I was in a Secret Santa Exchange at Illustrated ATCs .com, and now that the recipients have received their pressies I can actually post the pics. Today's is an Embroidered Box i made for Annie( EraserQueen), she loves bright pink and purple together so I grabbed some bright pink silk and then dyed some purple for the lining! I think it turned out well, and although I was cursing my decision to make it a 5 sided box as I was sewing on the base I will definitely make more of these.
Stay tuned for Dana's Tree later this week!!

Phew, at long last I have some time off work!!! A week and a half to potter about do some day trips and play in my studio!! I have decided at long last to call this space my studio LOL. It started off as my sewing room, then as art crept in it became my sewing and art room, so I think it deserves to be a studio now. who cares what is created in here!!
I am in a couple of postcard trades at IllustratedATCs and ATCs for all, The Butterfly one is from a postcard ingredient trade! we send the ingredients to our partner and then they come up with the design and post it back, it is fun as you can get soem fun stuff to play with that maybe you donthave in your stash! I spotted the Kaffe Fasset fabrics straight away and new they would be the base!! The Purple one is needle felted silk fibres on a recyled sweater that I dyed in blues and greens. I get them from the thrift shop p use as a base in my felted work!
