Playing with paint

I had great fun splattering fabric paint 🎨 over material, my workshop and all over myself yesterday (sadly it was only once I got home from the school run that I realised I had been sporting a yellow eyebrow 🤪) I wanted to make some maker badges that looked like they were cut from a painters apron – like a maker had made them 😊. There are a few different wording options, which I’ve listed over on my website now.
Have a great day xxx

Celebrate every tiny victory

How often do you whizz through life without stepping back to take stock of what you’ve accomplished? How often do you use the word ‘just’ when describing your efforts?
.
My homework for you this week is to celebrate all of the little victories… I’ll start you off, I’m celebrating that I’ve been to the post office every day for the past fortnight (and sending a massive thank you for keeping me busy while I’m at it!) what are you celebrating? Comment below and I’ll give you a big cheer!!
.
Have a great week xxx
.
Ps sorry for the very annoying dog hair on this flag … I’m just calling it Molly’s contribution to the task .. maybe she barked at a cat or something!

Go at your own tempo

A piacere – tempo is at the discretion or pleasure of the performer
.
How often do you look around, notice what everyone else is doing and realise how much better they’re doing and quicker they’re getting there than you? Its far too easy to get so caught up with what other people are doing that we forget to live our own lives and work towards our own goals at our own speed.
.
Life is not a race; embrace the pace of your own journey. Enjoy your week playing a piacere
. . .
Ps if you’ve spent any period of time in the company of a metronome, you’ll know why the sounds off for this one 😉 .

You can – positive pennants

I was stitching flags a few weeks ago, when I dreamt that I had also stitched some really tiny flag badges. This seemed like quite a good idea (which just goes to show that time resting is never wasted!) so I got sewing!
.
I decided to wear one for a few days to see how they stood up to wear and tear, so put one on my coat and promptly forgot it was there. .
The findings of the wear and tear test resulted in a tweak to construction, but to my delight, also led to the observation that wearing a ‘you can’ badge can significantly improve the your quality of interaction with strangers!
.
I’ve attached them to cards, so they can be gifted (but to my mind there’s really nothing wrong with treating your favourite coat 😉) link in bio
