Recycling is processing used materials (waste) into
new products to prevent waste of potentially useful materials,
reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials,
reduce energy usage, reduce air pollution.

Materials used:
Old frame altered with vintage pattern paper, 
vintage buttons, Calico fabric, embroidery floss,
Walnut ink.

Working on more items for the craft fair (in November), this little frame is one of them. I have more ideas and will be sharing what is next. I'm trying to create a variety of items. I hate creating the same over and over again besides it is nice to try new techniques.


Prayer Flag - Family

Can't stop making them :)

I used clear gesso on the fabric before colouring it and the colour is so much better.

I'm so thankful for all your kind messages about my work for the craft fair... you have given me confidence :)


Lavender and Rose Petals

We have a local 'Only Handmade' craft fair coming soon and I have collected all my courage and booked a table to sell some of my work. We all need some extra funds to keep our crafting going *smile*

To add to my collection are some Lavender and Rose Petal sachets. I have done some printing on fabric, stamping, sewing, crochet. I love these little projects!

 The rose speaks of love silently, 
in a language known only to the heart.

Rose Petal Sachets

Lavender, sweet lavender; come and buy my lavender,
hide it in your trousseau, lady fair.
Let its lovely fragrance flow Over your from head to toe,
lightening on your eyes, your cheek, your hair.
Cumberland Clark Flower Song Book 1929

First say to yourself what you would be;
and then do what you have to do.
It is so much fun to create these flags, I can recommend it :)
