It is with great disappointment that due to the inclement weather that we are currently experiencing in Leeton today and the downpour expected during our event timeslot tomorrow, that we are regretfully POSTPONING the Leeton Tourism RED CARPET DAY..the event will now take place on Saturday 16th May..we are now in the process of reconfirming all the stallholders that we had locked in..this soaking rain is much needed though which is a real positive for our town, look forward to now seeing you all on Saturday 16th May smile emoticon
The above is the announcement from Leeton Tourism - it is a shame, but the rain is badly needed. I was actually organised for this event (for a change), and also had a friend visiting that was going to help.
Lots of sewing has been happening in the last week ... it is inspirational having a sewing friend visiting. We enlarged a reindeer pattern - see original here - this was a hanging ornament and we wanted to make one that stands - success
I apologise for the quality and background of the photos as they were not staged, just taken in my very messy, well loved craft studio.
A lovely group of cats, these could be used as pin cushions as well as a cute little accessory. They are weighted in the bottom, so sit very well
A better close-up, you can just see the little wooden mouse sewn to his tail on the bottom left hand side.
Flower fridge magnets
and a new idea - stamping on clothes pegs
I just white washed the pegs, and then stamped the words using Black Staz-On ink. Attached a magnet to the back, and packaged them up. I like the idea, and the finished items, however I would like to source more sturdy pegs. As they were a trial I will be selling them for only $2.00 for a pack of 4, bargain....
Here they are before they were packed.
I also finished off four more reindeers, using my Cat 'n Cart Crafts pattern, as the market was to promote local talent (?) however the photo was too blurry to upload, so I will take more photos tomorrow
Have you been sewing?
