Goodbye Dad

On Thursday my dad lost his battle with cancer

He fought so bravely

I was so proud of him

We saw him suffer alot of pain

He never complained and kept his sense of humor through it all

Love you Dad

Till we meet again

Charlie Kate in her new outfit

You may remember this jumper I put on my blog a whille ago.
I made this for a friend's little grand-daughter.

I sent it off to the family a few days ago and I received this lovely photo of her in the outfit with the blanket I made as well. 

Charlie-Kate is her name and she looks totally cute in it.

I am so pleased and I think she tooks delightful in pink!

Welcome to the world beautiful!

PS ladies that have left comments regarding doing embroidery for me. I have my dad very sick with cancer at the moment. I havnt forgotten about this, as it is high on my prioity list. Just have the failing health of my dad I'm dealing with just now.

Handsewn Cottonholder

This is one of my completed Cotton Holders I made recently in a class

The class I took was teaching hand sewing the Japanese way. My teacher being of South Korean decent was taught by a very well know Japanese woman in Japan a number of years ago.

My teacher's name is Renee and she sews everything by hand. Nothing she makes is made on a sewing machine. It is just a marvel to see. She has made quilts, bag, dolls and Zakka.

I have been enjoying her class very much and I am hoping to incorporate alot of the methods I learn into the things I make in the future.

The Cotton Holder above is all handstitched. 
I made two of them. One for applique cottons and one for handquilting cotton.

I am not making a toilet bag with Flying Geese (Oh my... this will be interesting) Flying Geese with perfect points... we will see  ;-)

Hi to all my new readers 

Have a great day

Wool Felt House

My latest creation.
A Wool Felt House.

This is my own design. The pattern will be available soon. (this is all part of my new plans for this year  :-) 
This house is large enough for you to put the yarn for a knitting or crochet project in as you are using it, the yarn can poke out the top of the roof, or it could be used as a cute additon to a little girls bedroom, or even better still your bedroom.

This house has a front door, embroidered sides and a backdoor. 

This is what I call 'Shabby Chic Zakka', if there is such a thing. 

I was inspired by this house after reading a Japanese book, in Japanese. I saw these mini houses in this book and this was my inpsiration.

Silk ribbon and normal embroidery basic stitches are used in this design. 

I will let you know when the pattern is available. 

Have a nice day

Design Design Design.. I am feeling very inspired to push things ahead. 
Learning and inspiring others to create

If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen the wool felt house I am making. It is just looking so pretty. I am super excited about this design and I hope to have this available very soon.

Wool Felt Sewing Case

Hi everyone
I havnt been on here for a while. My dad hasn't been that well, it seems that the morphine dosage is going up by the week at this stage. So my motivation has been slightly sluggish.

I have been enjoying my crocheting, knitting, handstitching and embroidery though.

I saw this made up in a shop recently and liked it so much I purchased a kit.
While I was making it I went with the embroidery pattern but kind of changed it around as I pleased. I love doing free style embroidery.

I just love embroidery. I have been doing this art for nearly 40 years.. hmmm that makes me very old!! lol 

This is the inside of the case. 
A place for:
And my packet needles

Wool felt is so nice to work with... so soft and the needle just glides in without a problem.

I just love it. I have some other goodies to show you too.

I have been doing a hand stitching class, the Japanese method. I totally love it. I have made two cotton reel holders and now Im making a toilet bag. 

Ill have a post showing these soon.
