No stitchen today

First day of the school holidays so no creative endeavours for the day , but we did go for a long walk along the edge of the lake. the sun was shining, & the lake was glassy. we saw five stingrays at the edge of the water & as we were looking at them one came closer to look at us, they didnt seem bothered by us at all, had a look & leisurely turned away.

And another bag

Just had to make one more, i really like this bag, its easy to make & after using mine on the weekend i found it has many uses. the bags have all found owners, so i think there may be some more on the way. this one is tea stained calico with a machine stitched applique on doilies, some embroidered running stitch & a button. it has been lined with a co-ordinating cotton & can be reversed. (raylee).

essarr collage

A collage sign i made using different bits of paper, some buttons, centre of a doily leftover from a dolls top, a bit of fabric & a puff patch. a picture copied from fabric, pen & watercolour pencils. (raylee).

Something on the way

Im working on this at the moment , not sure yet what it will end up as. i sewed random bits of denim & a doily onto a piece of block printed cotton. have been experimenting with bird designs lately . i am trying to come up with some innovative ideas for embroidered doilies. i liked the knitted fabric that i scrounged from another project, & will work it into my design. havent had a real creative week as we were away for the long weekend & always seem to get behind in the mundane chores that wont leave me alone . i did manage to make a collage to use as a sign , which i will post later on. we (essarr) are all happy with the positive feedback we have received & appreciate all who take the time to look at our blog, hope we can keep you all interested enough to come back & check out our future projects as well as some older ones too. maybe some of you will be a little inspired to create as well.

introducing Miss Henrietta!

Henrietta is the girly girl of the hippos, she likes coctails and make-up and shiny things :) and absolutely loves watching sex and the city.

She doesn't have time for the bogan hippos, she has her sights set on fame and fortune and the tall dark hansome career driven hippos of the west end.

Henrietta has a huge personality to go with her 'curviliscious' body, so watch out for her for she's one to watch x
