Finally managed some new crafting, in between all this moving (ongoing) and I managed some new crafts- still works in progress.
Got moms old sewing machine working and having a go at various projects (well got ideas, but not all into action yet) just started some fabric flower creations- will have some photos when I'm reasonably happy with the results!
We also have a orignial singer sewing machine in a table which was my nans, not sure if it works but at some point will try get it working.
I also started making paper flowers! I made this one as an Easter gift from children's book 'The Wishing Chair' (thanks dab and a dash for the donation of the paper- she makes some lovely journals!)
I have several other books I will recycle into flowers and various bits! When I started looking for patterns I didn't realise how many there were! I'll have a go at some others.
Instructions for this paper flower I found here:
- I currently live in Birmingham and come from Solihull. I have a love of all things crafty, developed from my mom's love of crafts as I was growing up. I currently work in marketing, but I'm a qualified Aromatherapist, and use to be self employed alongside a day job, might one day return to that. I try to fit in crafts when I can, I wish I had more time and money to spend on it! I enjoy researching my family history and finding out about the past. It can get frustrating, but is really rewarding when you have a break through! I hope to meet people with similar interests as me and swap advice/stories.
