More making

Saturday morning and the clouds are low, it looks as if some making might be in order this weekend (too wet for leaf raking after all). When I was making my Christmas patchwork baubles I found some old scraps of thick linen, off cuts from a stool that I covered a couple of years ago. I printed some words on the scraps, and then decided I would make some little tags and gift packs.

An old photo, a vintage greetings card, some music sheets, and a bit of glitter.

Anything that involves messing about with my stash of printing numbers and letters is okay by me.

I've also been sewing button cards. I have one more sale this year, on November 16th, and I want to include lots of smaller stocking fillers.

I've also been making lots more of these....

I hope you fit in some making time this weekend


  1. Love those baubles - did you just use ordinary glue? They are so pretty!

    1. I used Wilkinson's own brand strong wallpaper adhesive. It is great, I find it easier (and much cheaper)than Copydex or PVA. I'm also finding lots of old baubles at Oxfam, I like to feel I am recycling them!

  2. You have been very busy. I love the idea of printing onto scraps of material - I think it looks very effective. By the way, I got your mag from Peterborough tourist info and am enjoying reading it.

  3. Those buttons are so gorgeous and your presentation marvelous....

  4. Such lovely things, you've presented them so well! :)
