So then i started on my first 'upholstry' project. Its a hinged lid wooden box from my mum, i think she got it from B&Q or somewhere like that. Shes having building work done and getting new stuff so let me have one of them! Its all covered in reclaimed fabric from my stashes and wadding to pad. Its a bit rough round the edges but i love it and it keeps my feet up while I'm tapping away on the laptop!!
A mix of cold weather and constant dribbling has left poor Chloe with a very sore looking red patch of dry skin on her chin so i made her some funky dribble bibs too as shes getting a little old to have a proper bib round her neck all the time!!
I've made a diary holder too, I have so many appointment cards come through for Chloe that are too long to fit nicely in a standard diary so i made this to keep them safe in my bag. Its 70's material my mum used to use to teach embroidery and i LOVE it!!
I've also been making presents and one particularly took me in a new direction. A photo frame for a friend that came from some very inspiring browsing at Altered Art pieces on Folksy. I think i may work on some for my shop too!
I will get back to stocking up my shop now, ever hopeful that the sales fairy will come a knocking!
