I’ve been on holidays..yippeee
A bit of this
A bit of this
Saw some of these..as well as some other lovely creatures..turtles, stingrays…
Climbed lots of these
And looked out at lots of this
Then we came home and I made these
I am starting to really enjoy making these journals so here are a few more newly finished. I love that it combines my love of textiles and my stationary fetish!..yes, I am addicted to stationary, sad I know! These are now listed in my Madeit and Etsy stores.
A5 Journal cover with vintage fabric flowers appliqued and free motion quilted onto a new denim base. There is also a segment of hand embroidered vintage doily and button features. I have also done some extra hand embroidery to add highlights.
A4 Journal cover made from a patchwork of upcycled denim jeans. This one also has an upcycled crochet belt “pocket” at the top to hold pencils etc.
I made a modern cot quilt this week as well. I fell in love with the colours of this fabric range a while ago so just had to buy it. I have finally done something with it. I have another similar one ready to quilt.
Made from 100% cotton fabrics and batting, It measures 82 x 104 cm (32 x 41 in). It is free motion quilted in a simple stippling design. I love the texture of this as well..hard to capture in a photo!.
This is what I have been working on for the last couple of days. A change from frangipanis for a while.
Since I have been on this tropical flower kick, maybe because it is so cold and wintery here at the moment!….I have decided that this will be the theme for this weeks Tuesday Treasury.

I recently joined in a Pincushion swap at Clare’s Craftroom. This is my little entry …
The whole process got me thinking about pincushions and what a vital part they are in a crafter’s life. So this Tuesday Treasury pays homage to the humble pincushion.
