Bunting finished!

At last I finished the happy birthday bunting for Louise, actually I would have finished it earlier, but I loved it so much I didn't want to let it go. So I had to take lots of pictures of it, and with a tear in my eye I let it go. Luckily its new owner is lovely and was so pleased with it (she's taking it into work to show it off) so I knew it would be okay. Bye bye baby.

New projects all-round

I'm making bunting at the moment, it's nearly finished and it's especially for my friend Louise. It's going to say 'happy birthday' plus have 3 special picture flags included too. They are a big sailing family so I have included a sailing boat.

I've included my pencil drawings for you to see and a few of the letters and finished felt pictures. All I need to do next is the bias binding (which I need to buy) and then it's finished and I'll have to find another project.

...Ahhh, I love a project.

I don't know if you can read the small print, but this a new arty venture. A group of crafts people have got together and are taking over an empty shop in Newcastle. They are called 'Made in Newcastle' and I'm going to have to check it out. The idea is to sell your makes without any overheads, in return for your help in running the gallery, running a workshop or cleaning. The shop is theirs until the owner finds someone who wants it to rent and then they have 28 days to pack.

I believe the gallery will open on Saturday 10th July GOOD LUCK to everyone involved.
