And the stitch goes on…

Thanks for stopping by, I’ve had a busy and creative couple of weeks.

One lunchtime in Camden Town I was trying to avoid the tourists and found a small parade of charity shops on the High Street. I can highly recommend the Oxfam, it’s so nicely laid out, stocks really colourful clothes and rates as pleasant on the charity shop smell scale.

To find it walk down the High Street towards Mornington Crescent. After Oxfam there are at least three more charity shops and in one of these I found this bargain bag of tapestry wool. 

I was very excited this week to receive my craft labels, hopefully these will make my work look a bit more professional. I ordered these from www.gbnametapes.co.uk  and am really pleased with the results.

‘Pay it forward 2011’ update

So of my five takers two of them will have now received their free homemade item. To the first I sent the ‘Green Stripey Clutch’, you can see a pic in my first post here https://bexmclaughlin.wordpress.com/2011/01/20/gotta-start-somewhere/ .

For my second friend I made another clutch bag out of some upholstery material with a lovely silky lining. Come back over the next few weeks to see what I have created for the remaining three.

Next Week……

The knitting needles are out again and I’ll be sharing a free pattern for something perfect for this chilly weather.
