Burn Down the Disco - Screen print

Presenting my latest screen print - featuring a lyric from The Smiths song "Panic" in silver ink, this A4 print is simple but effective I think. As people who know me will be aware, I love the Smiths and so I think this one will be taking a place on my wall at home!

If you like it you can order from my Folksy shop now :)

Handmade Christmas Wreaths

I have been busying myself lately making things for my stall this saturday (30th November) at the Spiegeltent Christmas Fayre. I have made two more Paper christmas wreaths similar to the ones I made last year but slightly smaller and so  bit less work! These ones are about 8 inches across.

Update: The blue one is still available so I have listed it on my Folksy shop here, postage within the UK is £3.

I also made a mini wreath which is needlefelted with red felt. It has felt holly leaves, gold thread and bead holly berries.

Needle felted Xmas Pudding Baubles

 Another Christmas decoration I have created, Needle felted Xmas Pudding Baubles! To be honest I did cheat a bit and needle felted on to polystyrene balls but the result is just as good I think and takes a lot less time! These baubles are going to be for sale on my stall at The Spiegeltent Christmas Market in Bristol on November 30th (please see my facebook or twitter pages for more info).

Felt Christmas Baubles

I made some cute Christmas decorations from bits of felt, beads and ribbons. My sewing machine skills are still not as great as I'd like but these were good practice! The idea and the patterns came from Samantha Stas in this month's Mollie Makes Magazine.

Flea Market finds - October

I was really hoping to find a nice mirror or dressing table this time at the Flea Market, but alas I didn't buy the mirror I liked quickly enough and then it was gone! Here are the things I found.

I was particularly pleased with the (1960's?) bakery posters, I got them on my way to the exit at the last minute, they didn't look that interesting at first, but when I rummaged further into the pile I found some of the original drawings for the advert (hand lettered which is cool) and also some of the red coloured separations which they would have used to create the screens to screen print the posters. The separation sheets have been hand cut with a scalpel, must have had to be really accurate!

Also found another magic lantern slide, the subject seems rather sinister but interesting nonetheless. Got some melaware jugs too, to go with an orange one I already have, and a large jam pan which I thought to put plants in before realising they would probably need some form of drainage!

Refurbished stool #2

Found another old stool in need of repair, so I transformed it, and all for free since I had the things already :) It has taken so long to finish that the sedum in the background has flowered! Not bad for £2 though.
