….. comes in many forms and guises and most unexpectedly. Thus it happened to me whilst in Asda having a nose around at some tops, checking out their bargain rail and I fell in love with a handbag made of denim. Price £10. I took a photo and then thought - why not. After closer inspection it was made up of embroidered pieces, sequins, seed beads and beadwork. Aha I thought I can do this. I have boxes of beads, hand embroidery threads and also my soluble fusing and my embroidery machine as well as my sewing machine. I also have pieces of denim from the scrap bag. I only took one photo of this but it is supposed to be butterflies in a flower garden. There was also a matching wallet. It was only a zip top bag but I had thought that maybe it could be a fold-over version. Creative juices are starting to run. I think in the next few weeks and possibly when OH goes fishing that I will be getting out the embroidery machine and starting to play. Its about time I dipped my toe in the water.
Whilst I was browsing in M & S Home Store I was looking at the bedding, and the beds. I need new bedding at some point as well as a new mattress and quite unexpectedly I was quite taken with this. This is a combination of a printed fabric enhanced with embroidery.
The link to the bedding is here:
So I am hoping to sometime next week actually start playing with the embroidery machine as well as my new all rounder. I have a lot of resources available and now its a matter of downing tools. If it is not next week it will be the next as OH is planning on going fishing!
Catch you all soon.
