Oh Come All Ye Faithful …. Creatives

We’re artists you know dahling! (Dahling should be said the Edina from Ab Fab way).

How on Gods green earth did I ever live without an over locker!!!???

DD1 has a new to her sofa that is a distinctly uninteresting colour but most functional. She requested some scatter cushions, to which I agreed and then promptly did nothing about ๐Ÿ™‚

Whilst visiting this weekend past I allowed DD1 the honour of choosing some fabric from my vintage stash …… Uh Ha I am a toptatstic Mum sometimes. My eldest also an Artist Dahling, chose a vintage Laura Ashley and a French barkcloth. The latter is a bit delicate being at least 60 years old but hey oh let’s see how it lasts.

She did also choose an even older poppy fabric but for some reason I just couldn’t make myself take my scissors to it …. Bad Mum now ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyways, 4 varying sized feather cushions also from stash are now fashionably dressed in vintage ready for relocation to Northamptonshire. With the advent of my wonderful overlocker the task took a whole hour. Pretty darn chuffed.

As for the Oh Come All Ye Faithful title ….. Seemed seasonably appropriate and that’s the long and short of it but as you too are an Artist Dahling I know you will understand the meanderings and frivolities of a creative mind ๐Ÿ™‚

Higgeldy Piggeldy….

Due to the distinct lack of sewing I have decided to post a couple of things that have made me smile recently, really to stay in the loop with blog land ๐Ÿ™‚

Winter starts in a couple of days and it has been unseasonably mild in Blighty but we have enjoyed some awesome sunrises, here’s one captured just a few days ago.

DD1 is an Art and Design Teacher (think I’ve mentioned this once or fifty times) she was at a lose end one evening last week and made me this wonderful picture. There are so many beautiful things going on in it, I can stand and look at it for ages. Lucky me ๐Ÿ™‚

Darling Dellis at curlsnskirls sent me a fantastic package, in there was an owl fabric that I HAD to use immediately it is so sweet and luckily enough I was putting up the Christmas decorations so it was put to use as a table cloth and it’s perfect for the job alongside the girls Christmas stockings ….. They are 20 and 24 but still apparently need their stockings. In fact it works rather well as they are happy to forego a big pressie this year so long as they get their stockings ;). Dead handy given we are tightening our belts a bit in readiness for our Silver Wedding in February and my 50th in June. Eeeeek 50!

Well they do say you’re as old as you feel or the man you’re feeling, and my man is younger YEEEEEHA!
