I seem to be in the grip of a passion for cutting fabric up then putting it back together! First it was patchwork hexagons and this last few weeks it's been suffolk puffs. I like playing with the different colours and patterns, arranging them to give a pleasing and cohesive effect.
This little fabric necklace has become a favourite to wear, it's made with some perfectly scrumptious fabric that I bought from Sal's Snippets when we were in Cornwall a couple of summers ago and I convinced the family we had to drive to Porthscatho to the Homespun Fair and they were rewarded with delicious cakes after I'd had a lovely mooch around the tempting stalls. I had been saving the fabric, as I do so many of my lovely fabrics, but then thought what am I actually saving them for? So much better to use them and enjoy them.
Then I had an idea for a little girl's birthday present
and mounted the finished puff arrangement on a hairband. The Baby Brother kindly modelled the hairband for me so I could judge where to stick the puffs but was not keen to have his picture taken wearing it - poor lad has to put up with so much!
Enjoy your chilly weekend, I'll be back next week with the first in a new series 'Meeting.......' a chance to be nosy and find out more about some of our favourite creative bloggers.
