More Marmalade, Sally-boots and Precision

Another busy day of making! First, the rest of the Marmalade so now we have a year’s supply including ‘Breakfast-in-bed’ miniatures and several to give away.

I have finished a pair of Sally-boots for the latest addition to our extended family. They will be posted tomorrow.

Our stair carpet has been beautifully protected prior to painting.

Cushion, Tote Bag and A Leaf

Today’s beat-the-blues was to create stuff. I have made a Harry Potter cushion cover and a reversible tote bag in the same fabrics for Christmas for our Harry Potter mad LiveWire No 4.

Next, I knitted a leaf in turquoise cotton for a very special project that is just beginning.

Angels, Brooches and Clothing

I’ve been on duty today at the Gallery where I show my glass. In the quiet moments, I managed to foil some more angels for the Christmas Market.  I’ll show you when they are finished.

It is lovely to spend the day surrounded by beautiful things.

Brooches made by Ann Butland – one of these sold today

Beautiful top made by Pam Tongue, hand printed on merino wool and silk. The amazing hat is made by Phil Kincaid.

Fabric, Curtains and A Window Box

I was in one of my favourite shops, Redruth Sewing Studio, yesterday buying curtain tape and saw this delightful fabric. I’m trying to decide what I can make with it and for whom.

I have spent today making another pair of curtains for L’s cottage windows – just the hemming to do now. This is one of the the curtains I made while I was there.

A beautiful window box caught my eye while we were in London.

Autumn Colours, Bottle Tops and Cyclamen

I love how the centre of the yellow daisy is the colour of the bronze Autumn leaf and all given a sheen by the Cornish mizzle.

I passed a whole patch of beautiful woodland cyclamen this afternoon.

On the wall outside the Primary School where my choir practises on Monday evenings was an octopus. As I approached I realised that it was made entirely of bottle tops.
