Some swap items

I finally dragged myself in to do some sewing. I am in a Alice in Wonderland swap in one of my groups so I have made the queen of hearts and alice, I am hoping to add the white rabbit this weekend. I am also in a birthday swap, as I get side tracked with work, I thought I would whip up a few of the parcles in advance so I just have to mail them when the time comes. The birthday dolly turned out so cute, I still need to put a candle in her cake (its been so hot I didnt want it to and I love the koalas, I made those for all my overseas friends. I couldnt find any nice aussie fabric so I used tea towels and the clothes turned out pretty well I think

Some altered art

I finished off some more altered art for gifts and such and are currently working on some altered tins, altered art is a great sidebar to sewing, it is another fantastic creative outlet and is very relaxing

The Big 40

Well I turned the big 40 a few days before Christmas, I want to share a picture of the beautiful mouse my friend Chris made me for the big day, I will treasure her, she is lovely

Felt work

I have managed to do some felt work. I like sewing with anything that I can easily do by hand on the couch watching So I whipped myself up a penny rug for a side table in my lounge and I couldnt resist making these felt cakes that I am using as pin cushions

Happy New Year everyone and best wishes for 2010. Hoping everyone had a safe and happy Christmas. Im on a couple of weeks holidays and trying to motivate myself to do some crafting...easier said than done
