The drought seems to be well and truly over! This week has seen some of the heaviest rain fall in such a long time. Most unusual for this time of the year too, I had thought it would take a summer cyclone to break our long running drought.
Block 4 of Tiskit a Tasket
In this block I have tried the back basting applique technique, it is quite a bit easier that the other forms of needle turn applique I have tried recently. There are some great tutorials on blogs out there, this is the one I used.
Another Sock Monkey joins our family
This little monkey has a cheeky smile, I can see all kinds of mischief in his eyes.........
Labels for my creations
This idea came from another blog I was browsing. I have often wanted to add a tag to the things I make. I wanted them to look professional and unique, oh and be cheap as chips and easy to make.
Not a big ask I hear you say..... well since finding this blog I would have to agree... this was easy, and fun, now I have a roll of labels to add to anything I make in the future.
The image of the dainty little handbags comes from the cute business cards and return address labels I had made at Vista Print, I scanned and cropped the image and inserted it into a page of text, that I then printed onto a T-Shirt transfer sheet. This transfer was cut up to fit onto 7/8" grosgrain ribbon and ironed into place.
