I have really been feeling like I lost my mojo or something. I haven't felt a whole lot of inspiration on the crafting front lately. I suspect it's due to being burnt out with the amount of stuff going on at The Peanut's school as well as constant baking. I'm really not complaining though! Baking has been great as I am constantly getting business so, no worries there.
The Peanut on the other hand has been a crafting wizz lately and has been sewing up a storm on her new red sewing machine. This was a gift for her 6th birthday and I am proud to say that she's been doing amazingly, having now made a bag complete with button and three "disco" doll skirts.
I have a craft show coming up in two weeks or so I am glad that inspiration has finally hit me. This has come in the form of a great find at the Salvation Army shop, or the "celebration army" as The Peanut calls it. In the linens bin I found two gorgeous old table covers with lots of cool embroidery that I have been able to cut into panels. These are being turned into cute retro aprons!
In addition to this we had a birthday party for a 4 year old to attend and she's a little girl that we like very much so I wanted to make her something special. I am feeling proud of the fact that the last few birthday gifts we have given have been handmade. I asked this particular girl's mum for an article of clothing she'd out grown but had loved. I was given a gorgeous little wool dress that had accidently been felted in the washer. It was turned into a very special cuddly bunny instead. I think I may try one of these in a lovely pink pincord that I have been saving, I've got some mother of pearl buttons for eyes.
Anyone noticing a lot of pink around here lately? Look out for my next giveaway which I will post about this coming week, probably something pink!
