Not wanting to bore you with another post so soon, but I wanted to share pics!

It was my friend Taz's birthday on 29th October, and her favourite colour is purple....so I based her zippered pouch/wristlet on a tutorial that you can find here. Taz loved it.....and she very kindly supplied me with the photos to share with you all....seens as though I forgot to take pics of it (ssssh don't tell Marilyn though, as I tell her off for not taking pics).

I have been making other things....some owls, some more hexagon keyrings and a patchwork coin purse....but haven't taken pics yet....will do that early this coming week though.


Fixing Vliesofix back to it's backing paper.

Have you ever wanted to do some applique, and when you went to use your Vliesofix...it had separated from the backing paper? I've been reading some blogs/forums this morning, and found a method to fix it back on! WOO HOO paaaaar-tay!

To read for yourself how to do it, click here.

Once I've used up the vliesofix I have here, I'm going to be getting some of the more expensive one, of which there appears to be 2 brands of, which doesn't come off the backing paper....so I'm told!


Today would've been....

my Mums' 87th birthday. I miss her more and more each day, sometimes more than once a day. Everytime I make something, I wish she was still alive so I could ring her and brag about it....she was probably my biggest fan!

Hopefully, she, my Dad and all my other relatives are having a HUGE party for her....coz she did love parties.

I love you Mum

Input.....need input....please!

Hi guys and gals (if you're about my age from England, you'd remember that from tv!),

I'm hoping you'll be able to give me some help.....I'm wanting to know, what you think I should make as 'new' stock for the craft markets? Preferably nothing too fiddly and time consuming, but eye catching is good!

Is there a tutorial you've seen somewhere and thought you'd buy one (if you couldn't be bothered making it yourself that is, or don't have the time to!)....please share the link with me.

For those in the U.S. that may or may not have attended the recent market in Houston....what are the new trends in fabrics.....ie are owls still playing an important role (as they should *winks*) in designs.....are dots and stripes in or out? You get the picture....just want to try and get in ahead of trends falling down to Australia...lol What colours were on the agenda too?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.....and I look forward to hearing from you.
