I really like the eclectic mix of stuff we have on it, it's changed a bit since this photo was taken as have been given a plate that was my grandmother's and one that was my great grandmother's to go on it too. I'm glad we could give it a home as it's been in my boyfriend's family for hundreds of years, it's had a few bits replaced but we're talking a long time ago, so it's good to see what each generation has added.
And now for something completely different...I couldn't think of a way of linking these two things so there you go. I've made four cross stitch buttons as had this month's cross stitcher magazine come through the door when I was poorly and it helped keep my sanity as daytime tv is a little odd...

|red space invader button, if you spot the mistake - there was no way I was unpicking it all as didn't see it until the end!|
|purple space invader button|
|gold key button|
The pear and the key buttons will go for sale in the shop as I'll make them into badges but the space invaders have been nabbed by J to go on his guitar strap. I'm thinking of making all of the space invaders either on a strip of material to go on a t-shirt or on a laptop case for my brother-in-law's birthday as know he'll love that they're space invaders! I've started a big piece of cross stitch that will either be a cushion or a tote bag as fell in love with the design but not going to show you all yet as not sure if it's going to be a present, depends on how well it turns out!
As I've been feeling lots better today I've also been working on a few sewing projects, tracing and cutting out and am going to try my hand at making bias tape as haven't tried it yet despite getting the gadgets to make it! No photos yet sorry. Hoping normal service will resume from now on, but I have made an important decision. Despite having lots and lots of fun doing Me Made March and Me Made June I'm not going to participate in Self Stitched September. I'm just too burnt out at the moment and making clothes for myself right now seems rather daunting as have lots of projects I want and need to finish. I also want to start on making things for Christmas as would like to do as much of a hand made Christmas as possible like last year and need to get cracking now. I'll be very happy to see everyone's Self Stitched adventures though!
Happy sewing everyone!
