A creative crafts to-do list…

It seems that I am in trouble at home again because I have been storing up craft materials by the box load! There is a planned idea for each (obviously) but I have not got round to completing – alright – starting all of them.

As I refuse for my magpie habits to be seen as a negative fault of my creative personality, this is what I plan to do about it; publicly share my to-do list, increasing my motivation to complete it. So from now on I will be blogging my progress of these projects from time to time. For now here is the latest…

To-Do:

1. Cushions

The annual American Women Association’s Snowflake Fair is coming up next month and I managed to book myself a table. Everything should be handmade so I will be selling cushion covers- a clever use for the off cut fabrics I have accumulated from my showroom days…

so I need to get busy stitching!!

2. Mosaics

One of the plus sides to working in a construction company is that it is fairly easy to get your hands on ex-stock materials. This bucket load of mosaic tiles I picked up is begging me to turn them into something beautiful. I do have a few ideas up my sleeve but it requires time; I wanted to have these ready for the Snowflake fair but I think I have enough on my plate with all the cushion covers..!

3. Fabric pictures

This is the only project in my list that I have proudly completed but I thought it appropriate to share it here. Modeled in our garden!

This is another creation using discontinued fabric cut from a sample book- I’m afraid I don’t remember exactly which brand, I think it was Robert Allen. I selected my favourites and then found really cheap wood frames with glass inserts from the supermarket (Géant). The original white colour was what I wanted but I could have painted them if necessary. I then simply trimmed to fit and put the frame back together. The only thing left to do is put them up on the wall… so next on the list: 4. DIY !

5. Fabric to Tailors

A while back I mentioned that I bought lots of lovely fabrics from the Souq. Yes, I have to admit they are still sitting in a (neat) pile on my sewing table. If I did have free time and was very very good at sewing clothes I would tailor the garments myself…but that is not going to happen. So I am going to call on my trusty Thai tailor who will put them together for me based on my drawings. When complete, of course I will put on display!

6. Photos of Old Muharraq

A while ago I promised to show some photos of when we visited the old houses of Muharraq; see next post!

Have a creative evening!
