I love making things. Fabric, yarn, fibre, paper, paint and print are my tools of choice. The necessities of life generally manage to get in the way of my need to create , so it all tends to get a bit erratic. Exactly as the blog title suggests.

Here is my attempt to organise things and keep a record of my efforts.

My little Folksy shop is taking a holiday for a while but I hope to re-open soon and sell things that I have made for the sheer pleasure, but are surplus to my needs.

There was a slight frost this morning...

...which gave me the lovely excuse to leave my car warming up in the car park and have a look at the sun rising over Kelston Top.

.. this is the same view just 8 hours later. I am now counting the days to December 21st when we can look forward to the days getting longer. 

In the meantime, I think I had better get some sewing machine oil!

  With many thanks to Pink Penguin for the lunch box bag tutorial which I have used- sometimes adjusting to make bags bigger or the handles longer.


  1. All of these are very pretty, Julia! My favorite one is the last one :)

  2. I'm also looking forward to the days getting longer. Here it's only 5 hours 26 mins from sunrise to sunset on 21st of December (sun rises 09:28, sun sets 14:54). Lovely sewings!

  3. Lovely photos and bags too!
    Thanks for visiting & commenting on my blog.

  4. Love the bags - very practical but so attractive too. Thanks for visiting. Happy stitching.
