So I haven’t been here for a while but there are long and frankly boring reasons and one exciting one. After much deliberation I am leaving my office job to focus on my therapies and creative life. I know there’s not much to show on here but I feel there is a creative aspect to my life that I can make part of my living from. I thought it would be a year or two from now, when all our boys where through university but other things have happened, the boring stuff mentioned, and I seem to being pushed, non too gently, so the time is now, well in a month or two.
Any way not that much creative stuff has happened as a result but here’s what has happened…….

Glove number two has progressed a little

The lower part is knit as if on straight needles, then the whole thing is joined to knit in the round, I’ll show you that soon.

Then there is the first if what I hope to be many little card ideas……..

Next, continuing my button obsession, I made this………

I found these brooch findings that I think are designed to fasten fabric or felt items to a brooch backing but they work so well for stitching buttons too. I used plain sewing thread and then glue gunned over the back of the finished piece to strengthen the thread.

There are other things on the go at the moment but I wanted to get back into the swing of regular posting and some things are gifts for people who might come here so can’t be shown till they are completed.

Oh and Roxy the cat would like to say
