Little House on the Prairie Tags.

A little bit more of fabric collage sewing.  Sometimes I pick up a piece of fabric and I know just what to do with it and what other fabrics to use, other times I can go through piles of different patterns and not find the exact piece I'm looking for (even when I don't know what it is I'm looking for).
Anyhow, these tags sort of evolved from bits of ribbon I have had for ages and wanted to finally use, so what  could be better than as a garden for a cute little house?



And I wanted to use a Union Jack ribbon too, so these houses got our great nation's flag as their garden.

A little bit of fabric collage...

All those little bits of fabric I can't bring myself to throw away have been put to use in some fabric collages...


...a cute little birdcage...


...and a butterfly.  
There are more in the making, but not finished just yet.

Tag Time

 It's back to school and college today for my children after a lovely relaxing two week break.  
We had a fantastic and successful family egg hunt on Easter Sunday followed by a delicious brunch courtesy of my sister.
So I've been taking it easy over the break and haven't been up to a great deal of crafts but I did produce a couple of large card tags...
...with tatty and aged edges...
...torn sections, revealing another paper beneath...
...and embellished with bows, flowers, buttons, tags and lace...

Card Making Catch-up

I had a lovely day yesterday, catching up with some card-making.  I feel as though an age has passed since I last had such a productive day for cards...

Springtime Tatty Raggedy-ness

I love Spring, and I really loved the last two days of term, knowing I'd be getting 2 whole weeks of lie-ins.  I also enjoyed the morning school runs, as I got to pass all the little schoolchildren heading in with their homemade Easter Bonnets on.  Crepe paper and fluffy chicks atop many a wee head!

I had orders for tatty hearts and horseshoes - some of which were in Spring-time colours so I went for these...

 ...and some greens...

...and finally a couple of horseshoes...
