New House (no, I haven't moved)!!!!

Textile Art HouseI used alot of vintage bits and bobs, including the old key, which I found a bag of at the carboot sometime ago, I knew I could use them one day!!


And this textile Hanging, I used some of my homemade beads on this, and another old key!!

I have a bit of a thing for houses, don't you think?!






Ahh, now this is my first water lily flower , I put the plant in the pond 2 years ago. I was so excited to see the first bud and even more so when it flowered!!! I have newts that love to lie underneath the pads but I am not quick enough to catch them on camera!!






And finally I just love the colour of this Hydrangea, kind of a vintage pink!!

Enjoy your weekend, I'm off to figure out why I cant comment on hardly anyones blogs!!!

Beads,beads,beads!!!

After much searching for something different to add to the piece I'm sewing at the moment,which is quite different to what I normally sew, I finally decided to have a go at making some Fabric Beads for myself.
I do so love the Textile Art Beads that Carolyn Saxby makes, I am lucky enough to have some. So , inspired by those, I made these,from scraps of fabric and bits and bobs.
Thing is, its very, very addictive and I'm hooked, I love making them!
So, there we are, the sewing has gone back in my box, while I continue to make Beads!!!




Have a lovely creative weekend everyone xx
