Mini break :)

I've just returned from a quick little holiday to Sydney. It was raining and we had to negotiate 
with the wants of two teenage daughters but I did manage to visit my favourite favouritest 
Sydney destination, The Museum of Contemporary Art :) Love this place...

Sorry for the lack of attributions (and of course the dodgy photography!). Just wanted to post 
a visual postcard of what I saw :)

Hope it's been a good week for you too.

Copper/Denim Pouch

I've started making up the Copper/Denim pouches. This is the first one, a gift for someone special :)

Hope you're having a productive weekend too?

Days for Girls

The lovely Cath at My Bearded Pigeon is organising a washer crochet-fest for Days for Girls 
and I've been making up a few to contribute. I had some cotton yarn in my stash that I've 
been using and here is the result...

I'll be sending them off soon. Thanks so much for organising this Cath!

There's still time to hook some up if you're interested... just contact Cath :)

Embroidered Copper/Denim

A quick update on the copper/denim block printed pouches... I've finished adding the next layer of some copper thread.

I'll be making them up into pouches soon but I'm still on the look-out for some zippers with copper/bronze teeth to complete the look.

Hope you've had a productive week :)

Copper Oasis 2

All finished! Copper Oasis 2 - original design, hand block printed and entirely hand sewn :)

Funny how the completion of a work comes with that strange mixture of elation and just a 
hint of sadness that it's over.

I think I need to do something that involves looking into the distance now ;)

Copper Oasis 1

So, the answer was 'to stitch'... and this is the first one done.

Paper block-printed in my original design 'Oasis' in copper, with my new as-yet-unnamed 
original design embroidered by hand. (I'm in the process of burning a screen of this new 
design which you'll no doubt see popping up on my fabrics soon).

Still working on the second one which has a much larger area of the hand embroidered 
component (so it'll probably take me forever to finish it). I'm thinking of selling them as a 
pair... I really like the way the work together :)

I'm joining in with Kirsty's Creative Space linkup. You can see more crafty creatives here.
