Telling Time…………..

Posted on

Well speaking of time, its been a long time since I blogged!! But I have been doing heaps of stitching & I also work full time, so why arent I there today you ask……………simple I am sick !! Have the flu & so does Sir Dreamsalot (aka our 13yr old son) so I decided to spend a little time working on something that has been floating about in my head & I am pretty chuffed with how it turned out : First I went on a fabric hunt over the school holidays & found the perfect piece in New Zealand from Sew Pretty Fabric & Craft first time I had ordered from the company & believe me it wont be the last!!

  I cut 1 circle from fabric & then ironed on 2 layers of interfacing.

Next I worked out the spacings for the numbers (buttons) on the back of the clock face. This took a little bit of maths that I hadnt used for awhile, certainly cleared out some cobwebs!!

 

Next was button selection……………………that was hard, did I want 2 colours, lots of colours and then what sizes or shapes or hmmmm lets just run our fingers through the buttons & play with them for awhile, its very theraputic you know 😉

And TA-DAH finally finished my new clock for my sewing den 🙂

What do you think?

…………………to my little blog in the huge blogsphere of the internet!

 

So who am I & what do I do???

Well I am Tina a mum who is surviving a teenage daughter & a tween son. Wife to a great bloke who puts up with my sewing obsessions but doesnt understand them!! A bit of a rev head when it comes to having fun in or paddock with the go-kart and someone who loves to sew.

I also work full time for the Education dept & do as much sewing as possible on the holidays as during the term time is very limited! I run my own web page http://www.thesewingfairy.com.au & you may have seen me on facebook https://www.facebook.com/TheSewingFairy?ref=ts

As I start this blog I also start a self imposed 6 week fabric diet no fabric buying allowed before 1st Sept 2011 why you ask well its simple I have way tooo much fabric as it is & really need to use some of it up so that when I can buy more there is room to put it!

I wont be blogging daily & quite possibly not even weekly it will be when I find 10mins to sit still & update, probably mostly things I make with links to things I like on the net 🙂

 

So until next time

Fairy Blessings
