Hallowe'en spider.............

Thought I would make a little Hallowe'en spider for my etsy shop.
I say little he is actually around 26cm in height and length so hes a fair size.

















































His engraved spoon bowl reads 'The love that lasts the longest is the love that is never returned.'
A bit dark but hey its for Hallowe'en!

Textures..............

So I'm back from my holiday in Ibiza which was glorious and very much appreciated.Especially now that I have come home and its cold and grey.The light in other countries is always so different, I especially love the walled city in Ibiza as its incredible for textures and decay mixed with ultra modern and lots of cats!
So whilst I try very hard to get back into the swing of things and find out exactly what has gone 'off' in the fridge some pics of textures.( I know I did something similar last year but the images were of door handles!)

Fabric you save for yourself for ever and never use.................

I'm terrible for doing this. Saving a piece of fabric for myself to make something out of for myself.
And do I use it....er no.
I just stash it away with everything else and rob myself of valuable space.
I do have some little pieces that I have kept but being realistic I'm just hoarding again.
I'm terrible at hoarding.I try and try not to but its just in me. Since I had a big sort out in my studio and had everything clean and tidy and organised I feel a ton better and its lovely to work here now. I feel I can breathe easier. I can probably breathe easier due to the fact that's its not dusty anymore!
I had this piece of fabric that I really liked a large sample from Sanderson.
Sanderson fabric is definitely one of my favourites. Its heavy sews beautifully and when you stuff it shapes so well.
Ive made 3 bugs from it. For myself.
Then realised that I really don't have anywhere to put them.
Oh Finch!
Ive put them in my etsy shop.
lol




























































































































These are all made form the same piece. It had so many different things going on in the fabric.
A story,flowers,branches leaves and swirls.
