I just love blue dont you?





I have got some lovely bluebells growing in my garden at the moment which my Dad gave me a couple of years ago. Continuing with the blue theme I made another fabric bowl today..this one has a crafty individuals butterfly stamp in the middle. If you want to know how to make fabric bowls click on the link to the C&T shop (blue bird badge to the right). Quite by accident I found another great way to make sure you get all the details from a rubber stamp. Ink it up then put your material over the stamp face up then press it with a hot iron..this makes sure you get a great image and heat sets the ink!! I also made another fabric vase last night as a present. I am off to Aintree (which is about 10 miles from me) tomorrow for the creative stitches show and am looking forward to perhaps taking part in a few workshops on fusing fabric etc.
