A few nights ago I was chatting to Dawn on line about whether or not to start a new project or continue working my way through a growing pile of UFO’s. We were both ooohing and ahhhhing over Anni Downs latest book of inspiration, Some Kind of Wonderful. I couldn’t decide, should I make the sweet little coin purse or what about a needle book for a friend? Later that night I had dismissed the idea of starting anything new and continued with the stitching I was working on. Well, blow me down, something happened overnight (insert weird music) because when I woke up and long before I showered and got dressed I had pulled out co-ordinating fabrics and decided to make the Travel Documents Wallet out of the book. A travel document wallet is just what I’ll be needing especially when I get to toodle off to Tasmania next March, hee hee, more on that in another post.
So, here I was fabric, trim, magnetic catches and the rest – as they say (whoever they are) is history, but here are the photo’s.
Having got all inspired about travel and wanting to make a whole heap of useable ‘stuff’ to take with me I turned my attention to my sad looking suitcases. actually they’re not that bad and I can’t justify buying new ones but… I can make some case labels to add a bit of ‘craftiness’ to them. Taa daa, luggage labels, Miche’le Style. Now I just need to find one of those hole punch thingies and put a little rivet in it so it all looks just right.
So, there’s my catch up for this week, our little shop has been humming over and yesterdays Sit’n Stitch Friendship day was full of chatter and laughter, just how we like it. I hope your week has been full of inspiration and friendship too.
