I mentioned last week that my darling friend Kate gave me some fabric that was her grandmother's. I thought I'd post a couple of pics:
This is Horatio, an elephant I made out of a pillow case patterned with elephants. I got the pattern from Craftster but came out with the felt feeet and blanket stitches. He has everything but eyes-I'll be doing those when I get home from work I got the original idea of reusing a pillowcase from Meet Me At Mike's week of pillowcase recrafting done by the wonderful Kootoyoo.
I've also made some tea cup candles as part of 'no spend craft month'. I made a few different ones with retro teacups and saucers over the years, and thought they might sell, but no joy. I do enjoy having them round luckily :-)
I've been trying to organise my crafty materials and here's one that confounds me:
How do others keep their embroidery thread tidy? I'm not worried about numerical order as it's used for bits and pieces, not cross stitch, but I'm wondering if I should be winding around cardboard or is there a better way? I have some time at work so thought I'd get stuck into it.
