JUBBLY STUFF


An assortment of items for you to view this evening. I have been clicking away with my little camera as I am trying to catch up on this here Blog of mine. You just may have seen some of the stuff before, I am way too lazy to go and check!!!! My feeling is it is always worth a second look.....hee hee

Starting with a fabulous Fabric Postcard-theme-BUD-- from my lovely friend Maggi,
isn't this just gorgeous, when you touch the bud it is like wax,
I have no idea how Maggi did this but oh I want to learn this technique,
thank you Maggi, you are an inspiration to me...
and just look what she sent me with the Postcard, I am so spoilt by lovely people...
 
I sent one of my fabric Postcards to Diane, and look, another super gift, a pot holder, Diane informs me it has THINSULATE inside so it will be fine for hot stuff,
thank you Diane, I love it...
Bat buttons, a gift from another lovely lady and I am sorry to say
I can't remember who it was right now, how bad is that...:-(
The lovely Tonya sent me these many moons ago, I keep getting them out and looking at them, their day for use will come...
Margaret in France sent me these as a surprise gift, more bat buttons but these are so like me - Vampire Bats, how did you guess Margaret??? Thank you so much...
Another gift from - argh must find out...
OOOO Just look at these beauties - Janice made these for me, I asked her to make them bigger than normal to try to contain my horrid swollen feet, and she has come up trumps, she has also made the top nice and loose for me as I cannot bear anything tight round my legs, these are sooo soft,  thank you so much Janice, these are perfect for me.  She takes orders you know, I will find her link for you...
*****************************************
This is a fabric Postcard I made for a swap on PP Forum the theme was -- AGE --
this is depicting a leaf's three stages of it's life, on the tree, falling off the tree and as a skeleton leaf...
ATC Swap same Forum - Theme 'Pictionary'
can you guess what the word is???
Bookmark Swap same again -
this is causing havoc on the forum as no-one can guess what it is,
can you???
Fabric Postcard - Theme RUSSIA -
do you get it???
******************************************
I had got way behind with my journals which we decided to do on the 6th of each month, well the other night I thought, why am I trying to be clever with these, they are after all just a reminder for me of what I was doing on that day of each month, SO I decided to K.I.S.S.
this is 6 March 2012...
6 April 2012
6 May 2012
see - KISS - gets the job done every time...
*********************************************
Found this in a drawer, they were little triangles which had been lopped off from something or other and someone at my group challenged me to use them, well this is what I made with the little divils, you will see they don't meet very well in the corners, but what the heck? Any idea what I can use it for?
Oh my, that drawer threw this at me too, but I appear to be one short - again, any ideas what I can do with these, they are not joined together yet by the way...
*******************************************
Found this at the top of the wardrobe when I was having a tidy up in there. I made this sooo many years ago it is embarrassing, it never did fit me when it was finished so I have never worn it, and never likely to now. I ought to measure it to see what size it is as I would love to sell it, it would keep someone warm. Anyway this is the back...
the lining...
close up of front...
the front...
just thought this looked a nice pik...
Let me know if you are interested...
*********************************************
See that flash of RED it is my postie coming up the drive and I could see he was carrying a HUGE parcel, and it was for me....woo hoo...
****************************************
Bought from the pound shop for me to use for embellishments...
and again - £1 -
ditto -
ditto -
AHA
Can you guess what this is and what I am going to use it for???
Thanks for looking folks.

That jacket is a work of art! Completely wrong colors for me, but hope you find a good home for it.
Love the wax rose bud too, really realistic.

Caz said...

Love the Vampire Bat buttons,,, and that looks like plastic tubing,,,, oooh, missus! Lol!!

Cookie said...

what lovely pieces you got there. Always fun coming here to have a look around.

Maggi said...

Great photos Jan. The bud is actually just ordinary photocopy paper. The background papers are waxed though - just melt candle wax onto paper and then iron it - voila, waxed papers

Lovely work the jacket a lot of work gone in to it
On the log cabin blocks depending on size how about doing on-point table runner or you can do either 3 rows of 5 or 5 rows of 3 blocks
Thanks for the lovely comments on my socks so glad they okay for you enjoy
Hugs Janice
