This is the link to the bag tutorial

Saturday, 27 September 2008

Ok I have tried several times to post a link so that it works when you click on it. It post OK
but then when I click on it says blog not found. The blog does exist, url was correct, so what am I doing wrong. ( it was the bag link.) any help gratefully accepted.


Ok... posted piccies in wrong order , the green one is the napkin one and the bright dotty one is the tea towels. Hope thats as clear as mud. Better go now, just off to help daughter to hang her exhibition as mentioned before at Art Van Go

These bags are made from 2 teatowels from a tutorial posted by really easy if both teatowels are same size ( ask me how I know!) the second one is my adaptation using napkins which are square so you get a small oblong.

baited breath

For those waiting with baited breath ( yeah right, apart from Gina and Gill not sure if anyone reads this ) I had forgotten I did not post the results of my daughters Uni course. my daughter Ashlie was awarded a High 2.1
BA degree in Photography. She has an exhibition coming up at Art Van Go 1st- 30th October.
See Art Van Go website for opening times. Will put up more details later.
I am very proud of her needless to say.

One of my other hobbies is beading. Went to a beadfair at Hatfield House with Gill (sorry haven't figured out how to create link) had a lovely day, spent too much but heyho you can't take it with you. Out of all the kits I bought, chose this one last night and voila it got finished. Ignore wrinkly arms I tried to take picture without showing toooo many! Yes I know its not C&G homework, but I have done some.

blatant nepotism

Just added a link to my daughters website. No apologies. She has just finished Uni and awaiting her degree results. Her photography is amazing, even if I do say so myself. Please take a look.

Just realised I scanned this upside down. It is in fact leaves on the front, the back is very similar.

Cannot believe the last blog I posted was mid December,

anyway I am posting a piccie of the book I made with Gina Ferrari at our local Embroiderers Guild on Saturday. Had a lovely day, and, as always in Ginas classes , we all came away with a completed book. It has made me want to do more as before was feeling a bit post Christmas.
