Got the craft mojo back!

Okay, well my mojo wasn't really gone as such...but I was otherwise occupied with work and my blog (and craft) was thus neglected. I can say I was too lax with craft though. Before I headed off to Melbourne last week I had a craft day with Amelie and Atticus. I was semi productive I guess. I managed to tack my table runner....

I am actually really scared of the hand quilting. I think I am going to cheat and do some bits on the machine because otherwise it is going to take me 10 years to finish this!

The other thing I worked on was my pincusion from The Home Patch. So far I have cut out all the tiny felt bits....

All I need to do now is iron them on and then whip stitch them. Hopefully it is easy enough! Guess you will see when I am done.

Tonight I am also working on another project. I am making a pendant for a friend of mine. I am going to make it into a necklace which she is giving to a friend for her b'day. Anyone who is my facebook friend would recognise this pendant, as I made a similar one earlier this year for my friend Christine.

Getting ready there

Fabric in, now to add the dragonfly charm

Drying time!

I hope I wake up in the morning and it all works out.

Anyway, a long blog, so I won't elaborate on my Melbourne trip this time, other than to say I paid a visit to Patchwork on Central Park and got some fabric for Amelie and Atticus, as well as myself....

I have no idea what I am going to make with it yet, but it's Alice in Wonderland design and it's COOL.

Time to go and read I think. Next time, a few piccies from Melbourne, and some talk about future projects and BOOKS!
