You know, I have lost all direction with this here blog and I have no idea really where to go with it, which path to go down with it, what sort of blog it should be, which category to pop it into, whether to maybe use it for tutorials of my own making or other clever clogs' that I can show you or to lead you to....all that sort of thing. But, who knows, perhaps one day it will decide on it's own and save me the trouble of choosing! :^D
|a purrfect frame up don't ya know!|
So until then I suppose it's just going to be one that I will now lovingly categorise as 'Waffle On'.
and to that end, purely because Jackie over at The Back Shed put up a post with some gorgeous pics of one of her furry babies Fred, here are some of a couple of my furry babies, Puss and Kit.
|aww mum, are you trying to hide from me in that long grass? Ha, found you!|
I treated myself to something very prettyful for Christmas made by a UK fibre/textile artist Jackie Cardy over at Dog Daisy Chains. I've wanted one of her amazing pieces of art for quite a while and as I'd managed to make a few sales leading up to Christmas.....voila! This is it and the pic definitely doesn't do it any justice at all. The colour is a gorgeously rich shade of what you could probably call Flame. The centre is a beautifully tactile piece of velvet and the surround is felt that she has made and dyed herself!! What an incredibly talented lady she is. I'm loving it, and I know I'll be back for some more of her work.
I'm ever so pleased with the finished result of these little babies. They look so cute in real life, I can tell you. I made 3 just before that big Christmas market and they all sold so they never made it up on the blog or into my shops.
Oh, they are pinkeeps to wear on your hand while you put up a skirt hem or trouser legs! :)
I've added little bullion knots to these ones though, and I and the DH think they look much better. This brilliant idea popped into my little brain in a moment of inspiration and I sat down and designed them and made them up. Nice little filler-ins they are.
Mind you, I've found something similar in an etsy store just recently........drat!!
Oh well, great minds think alike they say.
