Wednesday, 9 November 2011


I'm in the process of making 7 tags for a swap i'm doing over on ukscrappers, for a group i'm in .
I can't show you to much today because one of the ladies will see before  she gets them what i'm doing & don't want to spoil it for her.
I've covered the tags up with the Paper Mania  patteren paper that i've used to make a flower so i don't give to much away.
I used steam punk  stamps from Paper Artsy to make the flower & place a clog in the centre & sercured that with a small pink brad.
Well thats me done for now i must get on because i've got the rest of the flowers to cut out. Happy Whats on your work desk Wednesday to all.

With Halloween well & truely now over  i'm back working on my Christmas apples that i started working on a few weeks ago.

After sewing five of the cut out shapes together & puttting stuffing inside it forms a ball shape.
I cut out some leaves & used cross stitch thread to do a running stitch along the leaves to make it look like the veins which you get on real leaves.
Using a long sewing needle & the same cross stitch thread which was used on the leaves , i sercured the thread at one end & pushed the long needle right up through the middle of my apple until it came through the over end.
Then i attached two leaves & the brown stem which is made from felt.
I then pushed the needle back down through the apple until it came out the bottom, i repeated this twice more .

Here is the finished apple .
Here's a sample of what i plan to do with them once i've finished making some more. i thought they would look nice arranged in a christmas dish with some fir cones around them.
