Just a little something I made

Perhaps the title of today’s post should have read Just a little something I made & what I am currently finishing off/and or starting!

I have so many projects on the go at the moment, no wonder my head hurts, there are days when I cant even keep up with me!

So we may as well  start at the front room of the house,

The beading room aka computer room aka photo studio aka visitors sleeping room & entrance to the rest of the house..


This is where through the day & most of my nights, my creative juices flow, that is of course when I’m not “hanging” out in the “craft” flat!!

This room is most affectionally known as Mom’s beading room (for future reference).

Yesterday I finished off a few necklaces but I also finished off a wire pendant that I had made ages ago.

I am quite bad for beginning something then moving on to something else before actually finishing the last, I get so easily distracted not unlike a child with HDD!

Yesterday, the rediscovered pendant “spoke” to me, Yes it did, most beads tend to speak to me,

Crazee?  Hell yeah!!

Tree of life

My Tree of Life…

Its such a cool feeling to finish & be happy with the result!

Also on the bead table is a necklace that yesterday I hastily put together &  I couldn’t resist this “believe” connector that I discovered while making a mad dash to spotlight the other day, this one is going to be mine & it going to be a bracelet, one day soon I plan, if I don’t forget that I even bought it!

Or course I do have a draw full of Ideas, all in little plastic bags just waiting for their time to shine but these 2 are my most current thoughts!

Lets move onto the next room, The lounge room! Which is exactly what we do in it, lounge about watching TV & pondering on what needs to be done, but I am usually distracted by the contents of the basket that sits next to my chair!


This usually contains a few things that can be worked on when my favourite shows are on, like American Pickers & Hoarders!!

In the basket this week we have a Bunting that I promised to make my daughter Shannon way back before Xmas, I just need to sew the binding on then I shall have closure, there are also some Owls in there that I’m thinking about pulling the stuffing out & replacing it with Rice so they can  become doorstop Owl’s.

Did I say thinking?? Oh good just wanted to clarify that point!

And we have an Owl embroidery, I started this awhile back & thought this would be the perfect project to work on whilst watching Dan play cricket, every Saturday (Ok so I do watch when he’s batting or Bowling, I’m a good mother like that), BUT, yep there’s usually a but, I just wasn’t happy with the way it was evolving so after trying to unpick the embroidery stitches that I had already made,


I decided the best course of action would be to scrap it & start all over again, so in the meantime I decided that perhaps I could work on yet another UFO that just happen to be floating around, for last Saturday game!


I can tell I’m going to love Saturday morning more than I already do, & maybe I can finish a few of these projects!

Now moving from the lounge room through the kitchen stopping briefly for Tea & toast!


This is the only thing being created in there until later in the day when I create Sausages & Mash for dinner! Oh the kids will be happy, NOT!

In the backroom sits “The Quilt” insert dramatic music! Quick, sneak past so it doesn’t see me,  I will finish this ……..one day!


Now lets venture outside of the house, to the back veranda,


This is my Birdhouse that my Dad built for me, the dream is to cover with broken plates, which have been supplied by my Mom who brought them back with her when she made a trip back to her childhood home of Broken Hill.

I see it in my garden, on a cool branch I found while on one of my daily walks with a pretty flowering vine growing around it & pretty little blue birds making it their home, sigh, It looks so pretty in my mind!

Finally bought  glue last week so the only thing stopping me is, that it’s been way too hot to sit out there & work, as you can see by the state of the candles!


The “craft” Flat..

A place where one hides when cricket is on TV, a place when one can lose oneself on what ever sewing project takes a girls fancy, and this week

Its another Bunting, as requested by two lovely sisters.


This I plan to have finished by the end of the week!

Id venture  into the shed but I’m only allowed in by appointment!


Wow, cant believe it nearly lunch time already, the day really does disappears when your not looking!

This afternoon my plan is too to finish off another project I started.


Its nearly finished, just needs a button.



Enjoy the rest of your day

Take Care




Ps: Did mention spoons??
