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

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.

Here’s the links and Happy Stitching 🧡 Debbierose

2 tone border

Hi Everyone,

Not much has been happening. However still managed a few crochet stitches. Experimenting with different stitches in this 2 tone throw rug. Now onto the border and a twisted 2 tone border to top it off.

Until next time, Happy crafting 💛 Debbierose

July Scrap Happy

No scrap news to post for myself this month. Busy with other items, illness and family issues. Nothing to serious, yet time consuming.

However, do go check out the wondrous creations of my fellow crafters. I am sure you will be delighted.

Until next time 💛 Debbierose

Happy Scrapping 💙 Debbierose

June Yarning

The Antartic Cold Chill Blast has arrived to mark another season change. June in the land of Oz, the southern end has begun. We have had off and on unseasonably sunny and warm days. Perfect weather to sit under a rug and crochet project.

I am still crocheting and have made 4 granny triangles, using my scrap yarn. It is diffusing the vibrancy of the rainbow yarn and making it sing.

They will be stitched on the side in this format to create a radiant 🌈. Then I will decide on a border.

Until next time Happy Stitching 💜 Debbierose
