Handmade Monday 123

Hello! Welcome to Handmade Monday!

This week has been one of those that is fraught with setbacks - mostly computer ones, which seem sorted now but it definitely takes time out of your week trying to sort them out!  There are a few long and boring stories which are probably best left alone...

I have fitted in a bit of sewing time though, and finally made the campervan tea cosy for Sewing World magazine.  I can't show you the whole thing yet but here's a sneak peek:


Regular readers may recognise some of that fabric.  This tea cosy was made almost entirely from leftovers!

In other news, I'll be doing a giveaway for digi stamps soon - with a difference.  I'll be swapping digi stamps for tutorials - pop back to find out more about this soon.

But, as ever, it's time for Handmade Monday and your links.  It's always a treat to take a bit of time to mooch around the blogs that link up!  Come and join me...

Can't wait to see the full version of the tea cosy! I absolutely love those fabrics so I'm always pleased to see that you've used them for another project.

Weeks like that are such a pain in the neck, and it seems to take ages to get everything back working properly, but hope all pooter problems are now sorted. Love the sneak peek of the tea cosy. Hope you have a good week.

Hope the next week runs smoothly for you :)

I hate it when things go wrong with pooter, it seems to take an age to fix.
I think tea time is a great time, can't wait to see the completed item.

What a brilliant way to use scraps of fabric. I bet the finished product is a good un.

Argh! I have just written a comment on your blog but the moment I clicked it got eaten by something :-/

Just wanted to say that your campervan cosy already looks great. Cant wait to see the whole peace. And how thrifty of you to use up all the pretty fabric scraps.

It must be nasty Sunspot Activity or something. I've been having Cyber-Cr*ppiness myself for the past few days! - really. What's the deal with the Automated-"Security"-UPDATES that take F-O-R-E-V-E-R to load, slows down your OTHER important work, and then, CRASHES your system!?!

I miss DOS...

I feel your pain as far as computer troubles go - they can be intensely annoying and frustrating. Am looking forward to seeing the complete campervan and its a great idea to use up leftover fabric.

This is a great idea for a Linky Party, lovely to see what's being handmade.
I'm looking forward to seeing your tea cosy :-)
