Bits and bobs...

It's 2:49am on Tuesday morning & I'm wide awake... definitely a good time to blog don't ya think?
...so here we go peoples...

Ozzy the puppy has settled in really well... our front room now resembles a crèche with all of his toys, he's teething & has many different toys to keep him amused & to distract him from eating the furniture! 


...here he is with Steve, tired out from racing around,

My ME & Fibro have been appalling just lately, but I have had moments of inspiration & I've started a couple of new projects. 
I've also started jotting down my ideas, so that I don't forget them, in the back of an old sketch book... so I've started drawing again WOOP WOOP 
...these next images  are from the sketch book ~ 


This is a new baby mobile, I'm making it for our new granddaughter who is due soon.
I'm using a mix of fabrics... the polka dot is new but the plain pink linen and the ribbon print are both vintage. 


The mobile design is butterflies & clouds and is the girl version of Logan's boats & clouds mobile (pictured below), that I made at the start of the year.


I'll post pics of the new mobile when it's finished.
I've finished the knitted wrap but I need to take pics of it on someone or on a mannequin, the next sketches/doodles are for a wrap pin (to secure it when being worn).


As you can see I've thought of a few ideas, I need to choose one for my first attempt... I'm edging towards the owl, probably because it's quite simple in design.
Here is the wrap with it's lace edge & beading, 



Last but not least are my 2014 ideas for Christmas decorations... I'm sticking to a Nordic theme, in red & white, like last year... they're so striking & seem to be quite popular. 
Here are the sketches followed by the first decoration (in progress).



...as you can see I've kept pretty much to my drawings, I just have to do the pot & plant it. 
I do love dreaming something up, making it... and loving the finished item, which is exactly how this blog got it's name! 
Don't forget you can catch me on facebook and Twitter too x
Until next time... take care x
