Now as you may or may not be aware, it depends when you last popped by, I decided to join in the Crafty Sunday fun over on the blog Me and Ma. It looks like great fun and a good way to round up a weeks craftiness by showcasing what you've been doing. If you're interested in joining in just head over to the Me and Ma blog. Now!
So without further a do here is a picture of something from this week that I can actually show you!
Yes it is a finished curtain, hanging in all its glory in the kitchen! It needs a little more work on it this week, I'm going to lower the hem a couple of inches and space the curtain rings out a little more evenly and of course make its pair!!
So I must admit I'm a little disappointed that that is the only crafty picture I can show you as I've had a really productive week this week, but as most of it has been for the 'Good Enough To Eat' swap, you're going to have to wait for me to show the pictures so that the surprise isn't spoilt for my swap partner MaryAnnLucy!
Also this week I also joined in the with the Flickr group 'Sunday Stash' which I found out about from this lovely blog! Basically this is a long standing group whereby the members, who I have to say are mainly quilters, post a photo of a new fabric splurge or a photo of their existing stash. It's very simple and a great way to come across new fabrics which is always a bonus! So my entry for this week is this
I bought the fabric from here in the states a couple of months ago specifically to make the sew liberated schoolhouse tunic it's Echino by Etsuko Furuya released in Autumn 2009 and is japanese of course! I haven't even cut into it yet as it's sooo beautiful!! Here is a web image of the fabric so you get a better idea of the full scale of the print as it's printed across the full width. Yummy!
I want to make the tunic so it has the dark border and the birds around the hem and the lighter border and the flying birds around the yoke and across the top of the tunic. Mmm.
Now I had mentioned that along with the curtaains I have done other crafty-ness that I cannot show the results of just yet but here in words is what I've done: completed my friends very late birthday gift, completed the handmade element of my swap parcel, sewn and stuffed the arms and legs of 'Little Miss H's' ragdoll!
To do list for this week!
work on Fabric Addict swap parcel
work on apron for Great Apron Swap 2010
Have a lovely evening whilst I'm at work won't you?
