The thing about glitter is if you get it on you, be prepared to have it on you forever. Glitter is the herpes of craft supplies.

Missing the Good Old Days?

When sitting down to sew, it is essential to have all affairs in order. 

Or is it?

Saw this on Hancock Fabrics' Facebook page and nearly peed my pants.

The waiting drove me mad...

... I'm finally here and I'm a mess ... Well, my sewing room is anyway. Just closed the first two dollies for 2014. I definitely have the sewing fever now - Jul has been drawing doll designs for me left, right, and centre; I completely deconstructed my old black wool coat last night and am plotting ways to usurp Sonia's red wool coat to subject it to a likewise state of fabric rebirth. 

Made this little cutie with scraps out of my old coat. 

I love wool felt!! It is my favourite fabric for embellishments and all things stitcher-y. 

Tea and Crossbones

Letting you in on a little secret. We're up to something here on Third Street... and it involves this fabulous skull fabric we recently nabbed in Avonport. 

With ... a little tweeking involving two tea bags and some boiled water ...         
... a few minutes of meaningful contemplation ...
And an even greater result ...

Just wait till you see what we're going to do with this ...

Hope you all have a great holiday!
