Crafting, fabric and life….

Well, first post of 2012 and what a year it will be I can feel it in me bones as they say. We’ve had a great start to the year both boys have been great if not a little bit over excited and cheeky. This picture was taken by my sister on Christmas day and although it’s out of focus it’s a rare occasion that our 2 year old will sit still enough to have his picture taken!

Our lovely boys xx

Ive started to get really excited about sewing and fabrics and my first project will be a cover for my Kindle. I also have some great ideas to celebrate the 2012 Olympics and have some fabrics to start playing with for those too! I have said though that I won’t be buying anymore until I actually make something! Here are the lovely fabrics that I have:

I also stumbled upon an unfinished cross stitch pattern that I am now determined to finish, especially since our 2 year old, Nathan saw it and became very excited at the ‘Dragon’! It doesn’t seem like I’m getting anywhere fast but looking at the pictures below I can definitely see that it is growing!

Hope you can see the difference!

I am really enjoying easing myself back into hand sewing but really can’t wait to get back on my sewing machine either. I’m going to dig out a tutorial for my kindle cover and then the process of choosing the fabric begins! I’d like to thank anyone that has taken the time to read this, retweet it, like it, comment or follow and I hope you have enjoyed my ramblings?!

I must also say that I am amazed at the kind and friendly people that I have met on Twitter. It is amazing how many people are there to offer advice, point me in the right direction, not get annoyed when I join a conversation and generally accept me for who I am and what I’m doing. You’re a great bunch of people šŸ™‚

Now then….Off to find that Kindle tutorial………..x
