The Craft Room

Hi all,

Sorry i havent been here for a wehile, ive been busy with this and that.... partly turning our spare room into a craft room just for me! yey!

There is still a bit left to finish- a unit to go up on the wall, and a sofa bed to put in too... but here's the progress so far...

Here's a close up of the picture....

And here is the bookcase with the radio and craft books!

And my first sewing project in my craft room..... a make up bag with lining... im practicing this so i can have a go at making a bag- thought id better get the lining process right first!!

Just basic- but heres the lining- woo hoo, lol!

Hope to give you an update on the room and the bags soon....

Happy Days,
Sharry xx

Happy Birthday to meeee!!

I wanted to share with you the gorgeous gifts I recieved for my birthday yesterday....

My other half bought me a limited edition bottle of John Paul Gaultier 'Classique'... a lovely smell!

My daughter (with a few hints to her daddy) got me 2 Cath Kidston mugs

And from the money from my folks i bought some commisioned bracelets i love them!!!

Here are my favourite costume jewellery bracelets that i wanted to replace with silver ones (they were looking a bit dull and tarnished).....

And thanks to a seller on ebay (krhandmadejewellery) who had the above picture as a guide, made me two gorgeous new ones- and one of his own style with a heart charm that i loved too!

So that's it- lucky me! Along wity some flowers, a plant and a box of chocolates... i've had a fab day!!

And with a meal out and a glass or two of wine- what more can a girl ask for?

Happy Days, Sharry xx

A new challenge...

Today I had a little mooch round the charity shops- which i do every couple of weeks- i love lookig for something a bit unusual, and love the idea of not having the height of fashion stuff, that has been pre loved!

I found a lovely denim skirt- unfortunately not in my size! I was about to ut it back, when i thought- i would love to make something from that material- its so nice!

Here is the skirt- it has a printed pattern on the material....

A close up...

And on the back is a floral pattern...

So, what shall i make? I'm thinking maybe a bag of some sort... but im going to have to think hard because i'd hate to spoil it!

Watch this space....
