Makings...

There's been a little bit of 'making' going on here in the past couple of days... I really have to try to grab any moment I can if I want to make anything though - which of course has meant some sewing while in the car (not while I'm driving though) and the usual 'strange looks' from people passing by.

What's so strange about a girl sewing in her car I ask myself? It's not like I have my sewing machine in the car... just a needle and thread.

Anyway, here are a few of the things I've been making lately...

A crochet star ornament for a friend (hubby told me it looked like a doiley... I tried to tell him that doileys were coming back in fashion - but in the end resorted to adding a button to try and make it look a bit more vintage... and a tad less 'granny').



More softies for the shop...


Some little sugar biscuits - great Christmas stocking fillers (also in the shop)!


What things have you been making/reading/listening to when you get a chance (while in your car ;)

  3. ha - we are heading off on a little holiday this week and I can't wait to make the 100s of yoyo clips during the drive. When else does a mum get the chance to sit for a couple of hours.

  4. I love what you've been making!! The button really sets the star off and it looks great! And the rest are all so cute!! I really want to squeeze in some sewing as soon as I can. I'm hoping to make dresses for my neices for Christmas. :)

  7. Haha! Just imagining someone sewing on a machine in a car!!!! :D You crack me up!

    I'm loving the star! The green is not at all grannyish - so very cool, and, and, and... Doilies are so making a comeback, just probably not on everyones dressing tables is all.

    I have mine on a skirt, on some tea wallets, on a piece of canvas!
