Finished another project last night. This one was something I should have done ages ago. Probably two craft shows ago I bought some prints from Prints Charming. This one was sitting around, and I got inspired to get to work on it. I purchased some threads recently to match the table runner I made AGES ago. The reason I did this is because I am going to make some cushions for my lounge and want to do some stitcheries on some of them with the same colour theme. Anyway, I thought I might use the same threads on this little number, and then hang it on the wall. I quite like how it turned out. I just came up with random ideas and went with them.

I actually took these photos in daylight for once, which seems to really help the products look better. Note to self: try to avoid taking photos of finishing products in the middle of the night when I complete them!
Funnily I came across some old photos when loading these ones onto my computer. The story goes, my little point and shoot ran out of batteries. I got really lazy and didn't get around to charging them again, and then I got a new phone with a fancy camera in it, so I decided to use that for my pics instead. It then turned out that it was a major drama to load the phone camera pics onto my computer, so I went back to the trusty point and shoot. Anyway, what a boring story! The point being, in doing this, I came across the very few crafty activities I participated in last year. One was the Sue Spargo class in Bathurst in August. I think mum has more pics, but these are the ones I took (can't show them all, as we were not allowed to load pics of her projects, they are only for personal use)

And here is a photo I took of the Melbourne Finders Keepers Markets, which I dropped into in October, during my flying visit to Melbourne. I liked it much better than the Sydney one (probably because the last Sydney one I attended felt like we were sardines in a can)
