Miss Mable & more …

Oh how I love Christmas. I couldn’t resist this beautiful kit from Fig’n’Berry Creations.

Miss Mabel came pre-printed on linen, with an extra iron on copy for later use.

This project combines my love of Christmas, red work and embroidery in general. This red work uses DMC variegated red 115, to add a little pizzazz. Before commencing I added a light fusible stitchery stabiliser. I’m in my happy place stitching 😃

Secret crafts I csn now share as now gifted cushion with spotty dresden EPP-applique

Also gifted crochet beanie and MILs cotton crochet snuggley

Until next time 💛 Debbierose

Scrap Happy – January 2023

2023 is going to be a fabulous year. I get to be a great aunty (again) and baby boy 👶 projects are my current focus.

Using the left over bamboo from chemo beanies I made last year. I came across this free pattern. Crochet, and I was drawn to the off center wrap, 3 button loops, seamless design. Bonus, it is a quick, easy, project for these hot summer Aussie nights.

It looks wonky at present as I have just started the sleeve and frogged several times as I tweak it to get the right stitch ratio. The pattern doesnot specify a stitch count. The seamless feel is amazing.

Pattern could easily be adapted to adult size. If I am ever that inspired.

Being part of Scrap Happy is inspiring. My fellow scrapsters motivate, create and have a wonderful array of talents. Please visit their blogs via these links.

Until next time

Happy Stitching 💙 Debbierose

Happy New Year

Wishing you all a fabulous 2023.

I missed posting on 1st December. So double first and seveal pics. Another festive start from Fig’n’Berry. Christmas lights are shining bright, pre printed linen. Starting with Christmas Red DMC 498. This is were I should have posted 1 December.

Then moving onto Festive Green DMC 471

Moving onto the gorgeous wool felt and finishing touches. This is when I noticed I missed a tree trunk. So back to RED I go. Then Voila, its ready for finishing. Wondering if a cushion or wall hanging, the choices are endless.

Now the annual first day of year start. This one for my train loving, occasional santa MOTH. I had forgotten how awkward plastic canvas is to work with. Luckily its not a rush job.

Happy New Year 💚 Debbierose

ScrapHappy – December 2022

The year is coming to a close and another scrap happy time is here. Now I have lots on the go, and still managed to only devote the past month to festive items.

Amazing the leftovers, I have squirreled away. This time its off cuts of felt, aida from long gone projects, and bits of Christmas fabric, ribbon and DMC from old projects. All coming together into a few hanging ornaments. Most have either arrived, been gifted or still winging their way to???? and a few to be received shortly at a family festive function.

Here’s just a small sample.

I do wish you all a very merry and safe Christmas.

Scrap Happy ~ November 2022

Not much to report scraps wise as I am focusing on Work and Christmas at the moment.

However with a few scraps from a Christmas KK in progress and fusible EPP clamshells, something else is brewing.

Do check out my fellow scrap happy pals blogs. Links are below. I am sure they will inspire you.

Take care.

Time for a Change

Well, where do I start. I missed posting last month. Far too busy with all the excitement and hustle of everyday life.

The MOTH celebrated his 65th, so we headed off to Ballarat, 1 hour from home. Spent time at the observatory for international night of the moon, and Kryal Castle, for their medieval festival of jousting and school holiday dragon show. Even had our pics taken dressed up and they photo-shopped dragons in. Here I am, resplendent in my Queenly attire trying not to laugh, and depict a regal stance.

Along the way, we scored some lovely buttery and crisp almond croissants. Bumped into a girl I worked with years ago and enjoyed the very brief sunshine we have had of late. Partially walked off the calories in the Botanical gardens before sundown.

We are experiencing an unusually damp Spring courtesy of La Nina, with floods reeking havoc across our states.

On top of it all, one of my colleagues retired. We both work part time Mon-Wed being our regular shifts. Her role was moved to FT as we had hours unallocated. I applied and now at my tender age, back full time and in a slightly different role. So, lots of brain synapses firing and I am enjoying it thoroughly.

On the crafting side. Well, it’s all Christmas related so unable to show until gifted, but rest assured its fine, time consuming, and love has gone into every tiny stitch.

That’s all for now folks.

Happy Stitching ☔ Debbierose

Scrap Happy – October

Wow, another month has past. Too quickly. I was thinking I had not achieved anything scrappy, then realised my EPP & applique is scrappy and the backing is from an old Damask doona cover.

#1 in need of a good iron
#2 in progress

Happy Stitching 💚 Debbierose

a spotty one in progress, which is going to be a gift swap cushion on linen

Scrap Happy ~ September

Time to link up with the many fabulous scrappy crafters who create fabulous items. Special welcome to our newest member Nóilin, I am looking forward to viewing your creations.

This group was put together and is nutured by Kate & Gun. If you wish to join, their links and all my friendly craft buddies is at the end of this post.

Scraps come in all shapes, sizes and medium. With the need for EPP templates and no luck acquiring the correct size. Google to the rescue, some recycled paper from a print out – Oops. A little time snipping into size and my EPP is ready for the next stage. Using scrap greens. Thus teeny, tiny project is underway.

Before I tackle my triangles, some scrap petals prepped ages ago, during my EPP cut out mania moment. LOL 😆

Anyway, Happy Stitching 💚 Debbierose

Couch Time?

Last Christmas as a holiday airplane project. I started to piece pentagons for Christmas Decorations.

After a few false starts, several sessions pf frogging. A friend had a brilliant idea. Don’t embroider with Elements Metallic Thread, couch it down instead.

Game changing idea – Thanks to Jill G.

Bells in progess

Star Power complete

I plan to add wadding, back them with firm felt and Pink into shape.

Until next time 💝 Debbierose

August Scrap Happy

Its August already. The time flying fast. Yet, this past month was time poor and lacking in motivation. I have instead been sorting, ironing scraps into colour tubs. Attempting to organise and inspire myself.

Stumbling on my paper tape rolls. I started my scrap roll. It’s fiddly, yet interesting. Also great scrap border prep for some distant future project.

Please pop over and visit the blogs of my scrappy blogging friends. They always inspire. This group is lead by 2 go getters Kate and Gun, incredibly talented and motivated with a sewing machine.
