I have been busy making and swapping ATCs. On the left is a mosaic of the ones I have made.

I have also been busy and made a holder to display all the lovely ATCs I have received from the trades.

Have been experimenting with different ways to use all the photos that I take. Here are some pictures of an accoridan book that I made about my holiday to Barcelona.

Finally, a decent update.

It has been a very long time since I properly updated my blog. Many reasons: Busy making things, computer trouble and hectic at work.

Where shall I begin?

I know. Recently most of my time has been taken up with creating a fabric book for my mum. You can see all the page in the photo. Learn't lots of new techniques to put the pictures in. Printing on fabric using freezer paper, iron on transfers, cellulose thinners, printing own messages on twill tape ........

Fabric Journal Trade

The fabric journal trade. I posted off all my pages and have received all but one of mine. Now working on front and back cover. We took at trip to London and I was able to treat myself to a piece of fabric from Liberty of London.

Treated myself to an eyelet maker which helped make my decision to created a ring bound book for the fabric journal trade. Really enjoyed taking part in this, learnt many new skills so that I could create the pages. Including tricks with my soldering iron.


Also recently joined in with a group trade in 'inchies'. Except ours are 1 1/2 inch by 1 1/2 inch. Glad they are this size as they are fiddly enough to work with. Really enjoying making these. Ended up signing up twice. To make 24 purple ones and 24 green ones. Still time to sign up again if i feel insane enough. Mostly finished the purple ones:

Going to get on with the green ones this afternoon.


Been making a batch of fabric ATCs. Not quite finished yet. Two are already traded but looking for people to trade the others with. Shall post more pictures when they are finished.


Have also taken part in a tassel trade (have to watch that when you search on google. Many other tassels come up!!!). Received two of mine, one more still to arrive. Here are a few pics.

(the first pic is one made for me, the others are made by me)

Lastly, I have a new favourite magazine. Cloth, paper, scissors, which is from the US, but managed to find a company over here where I can buy back issues. Also subscribed to it. Can't wait for the May/June copy as Ruth Rae (whose blog I read regularly) has work published in there.

Right back to creating, and I will endevour not to leave it so long next time.

so long since last blog

I JUST don't know where the time goes. Finally on a break from work. Been very busy. All fabric journal swap pages have been finished and sent. On a new book now, but very top secret at the moment. Really excited about image transfering which I am very into at the moment. Been using cellulose thinners, which is so quick and fantastic. Want to start using resin to make my own charms. Must focus on one project at a time. Revamped the study last weekend too. Much more space and easy to get to everything now. Still not perfectly tidy but I don't think it will every be with the amount I use it. Shall post pictures soon.
