On my desk this week you will find a couple of golf themed cards - I was asked for 6 of them - so I still have four more to make - it's always more difficult to make something specific I think - I prefer just to make whatever you feel like at the time, just for the fun of it. The scrapbook album to the right is new - I am intending to work on it between now and October for Mum's 70th birthday - she won't know about it as she doesn't have a computer, so it's quite safe to have it on here. The decoupage sheets just fell into the basket when I was ordering the album! - they're Tilly Daydream by DoCrafts. On the left is another piece of oilcloth, waiting to be made up into a bag - I'm getting a bit addicted to making them - I have kept two for myself (a large one and a smaller tote one) and have sold nine. We were up visiting the 'Famine Village' (Museum type place) in north Donegal last week and called into Dunelm for some interfacing on the way home - well when I spotted this sweetie jar design oilcloth I just had to buy some! The weather has been so beautiful since, that I haven't done much sewing but went to the beach etc instead. We're not really used to it being so nice, so we need to make the best of it - 28 degrees yesterday and it was still 22 at midnight last night!Visit Julia's desk HERE to find out what everyone else has been making this week.
I'm a part time teacher, married for over 23 years and Mum to Hannah and Nathan. I dabble in most crafts and have been making cards for about 15 years now. I'm a big fan of Stampin Up, Lili of the Valley and Magnolia products. I also make wedding stationery and sell my cards in a local craft shop to help school funds.
