covering my tablets

My nice daughters gave me two tablets at different times
So I had to make padded covers for them
I take them onto my Lanai and they are sometimes in the damp or wind
The folder with woman on front has several pockets inside where I keep all sorts of things like notes and pencils.

here are some views inside too
for my Samsung



for my Apple

silk pouch

I added vintage beading to the silk and cotton collage pouch
all hand sewn because it was fiddly and delicate

another workshop with friends

over the years we have made lots of crafts
sitting in the sun with the birds chirping merrily
lovely morning
Happy Valentines day to all
We made fabric hearts and paper envelopes to send

a few more lace and linen things


you must know by now I am patiently going through my stored textiles and using them
No hoarding here!
another loaded pocket and a heart for valentines day

loaded to sell



Heart for love
the heart has 2 antique sequin doves, how cool is that?
a new tassel idea at bottom
Did I mention that I really love things that hang and cascade, ribbons and fibers and tassels too

Here are a couple glimpses of the tags, more are included

Paris with love


a glimpse of a fabric journal I took ages to make
Done now and I am happy with it
Comes in a bag with pocket where I added more ephemera and lace pieces to play with
Lots of pockets with tags in the book

I sometimes enter Art Shows


when I entered this journal and altered shoe in a Show, they sold in an hour
Both were for the wall and had their own hangers which helped
I like the Holy Grail movies and books, and often re-create items from ideas gleaned there.
