plugging along


so this is going to be a quick post because i feel like i am going to pass out at any minute. lucy and i seem to be battling the same bug. that paired with lack of sleep and non-stop crafting is wearing me down. but, i did want to post what i made yesterday. above are the beginnings of some gnomes i am working on for myself. my friend tania is an amazing ceramicist. she has been letting a couple of us non-ceramicists go into her studio to play around this past week we have had a lot of fun. i can't wait to see how these turn out. oh, check out her etsy shop.
below is an apron for my friend janelle. this fabric was also a duvet cover in the bargain bin for two dollars at ikea. sorry for the poor photography. i finished it just as the sun was setting yesterday and had to get a quick shot before giving it to her last night. ok. gotta. go. rest.

Hi Amy, thanks for your comments on my blog, so kind of you.
Your gnomes will surley look fabulous when you have given them the final touch. And the apron is beautiful, the photo is just fine, it catches the colours well, you are very talented with all your different crafts, seems you need to take some time out by the sounds of your post, hope you do just that, and enjoy the rest of the week once you have rested a bit..please post up your gnomes when you are finished, sounds like a fun craft to do.
Kath from Scotland,
P.S do you mind if I link you on my blog, if so please let me know and I will take it off?
thanks again ..

Can't wait to see how those little gnomes turn out! you are putting me to shame with all your making....it's great but tiring and quite a lot to take on isn't it? I feel it too! Hope you and Lucy feel better soon. x

Love the aprons! I need to get some Ikea fabric. . . like I need to add more fabric to my stash??

Eager to see the gnomes! Gotta love them, even though they are nothing but trouble.

Nice job on the apron, I bet your friend loved it!! Did you make up this pattern yourself?
