No posts from me recently, sorry :( and this one isn't the most interesting I'm afraid!
Haven't felt at my most chatty recently (unusual for me, some would say!).
Seem to have a creative block with Chester!
If you do not know who Chester is then click on the link below :)
I desperately want to finish him!!!
But need to find some way of stuffing his arms and legs.
They need to remain flexible too!
I could use bean bag beans again but that means making a case to fit inside each arm and leg and I don't fancy doing that I think it would be rather fiddly.
Foam is a possibility?
Or maybe good old polyester stuffing, although I think that may move around into all the wrong places over time and I don't want to stuff it so firmly that they wont move :(
So .... you see my dilemma and hence no posts and no pictures!
I'll keep mulling it over in my little brain and with a bit of help from you guys I'm sure I shall come up with a solution in the not too, distant future!
On a slightly lighter note :) I have been making a bit of mini bunting. It was nice to work on something small for a change.
This first one is made from a lovely small heart fabric. I have added a 20p piece to give you an idea of scale.
They have 7 triangles on each and the cord is about 1m in length.
A couple of close-ups so you can see the fabric better.
I shall be making more of these, and other designs as well, to sell at a craft fair I am doing in the next few months. If anyone is interested in buying one (or two) why not email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can work something out. I have a pay-pal account and am considering adding a button to my blog if people would like to pay that way. They will be about £3.75 plus postage.
Well, have to go and get the tea sorted now! Sorry this post's a bit bor r r ring. I'll try better next time, just didn't want you to think I had forgotten any of you.
Bye for now xxx
