What I've been doing because I certainly haven't been blogging....

Hi everyone, sorry I've not been around much lately I think I've just got out of the habit of blogging at the moment. I haven't been to idle though as I have been adding my A to Z photo challenge photographs to my photography blog 
and I have also been busy photographing my friend Barbara's delicious cupcakes and cakes as and when she makes them. Barbara has a facebook page showcasing her talents so if you are on facebook don't forget to pop over and say hello!
Crafting wise I have been busy too, operation "tidy up the workroom" is still in full swing and I have managed to sell some bits on ebay, if you have any early copies of Mollie Makes and you no longer want them then they fetch a very good price on ebay!!! I have also listed some more fabrics on ebay because as much as I would like to keep it all I can't so it needs to go to a new home!!!
On the making front I have been beavering away on the box of unfinished bags that I found whilst tidying up my workroom here are a few of my now finished projects.

The lovely Helen from Handbags by Helen recently put a request out asking for a pincushion to save her poor doggy's paws so we agreed to do a swap. I made a pin cushion, well two (you can never have too many pincushions!!) and an "ironing friend". in exchange for a pretty box pouch. 
Here is a collage of some of the pin cushions and ironing friends that I made I have sent the cream floral/turquoise one to Helen and have listed the others on Misi.
And this is the pouch that is on its way to me!!!
I have also been working on a few secret swap makes, these haven't been received yet so I can't show you at the moment but I will post pictures as soon as I can. 

On the subject of swaps I am taking part in the
and have been partnered with the lovely Kezzie, whom I seem to have terrified with my craftiness, so pop over and say Hello and please, please put her mind at rest about swapping with me, I'm very friendly really. Swapping is all about the giving and receiving whether handmade or thrifted, beginner or experienced crafter all sent with love and friendship across the miles. Kezzie are you listening !!

On that note I am off to bed as this post has taken me a little longer than anticipated to finish, that's the result of not posting for several weeks!!! I promise not to leave it too long next time!! and I have just remembered lots of other things I forgot to mention in this post but if I tell you about them now it won't be worth me going to bed!!! Night Night!


  1. Hi Tracy, I can reassure Kezzie that you really are quite friendly xx

  2. Just catching up with a few of your posts. What an amazing workroom you have!
    And thank goodness for eBay in helping us clear the clutter. I'm selling lots of my little boy's clothes, toys, etc and it's going great guns - enough money to buy more clutter now!

  3. Thank you that is so sweet to reassure me! Wow your bags are beautiful! Really lovely, and the gorgeous skirt/apron with the appliched birds! I do love things with birds on, they are so cheery and timeless!

  4. I loved your A-Z photos ... well done. I actually did a set but then couldn't post them on FB so may add them to my blog later on.

    How do you find out about all the online swaps. By the time I hear about them it's always too late to join in!

  5. Hi Tracy! Hope you are well! Did you get my e-mails at all (one last week with list of interests and one or two questions and one today)? If possible, please could you send me your address as I'd like to get your parcel sent off asap! I've been beavering away in my only spare time for the next 2 months trying to be organised!!!!
    Oh and I'm really glad I am not the only one who doesn't like scary films or books (though sorry you also get scared!) Have a nice day! x

  6. Thanks for the swap Tracy. Am just doing my blog post this morning. Pin cushions and ironing friend have all now been fully inducted to their new roles and are settling in nicely!


I would love to hear your thoughts and comments on my blog and I will try to answer as many as I can. thanks Tracy
