Crafty week

It's not that I don't craft through the week (some people would say it is ALL I do) but getting photos just proves to be beyond me. Ballarat has the deserved reputation of being somewhat cold and gloomy so by the time I get home from work there is usually no light left at all. Certainly no photo-taking light left in the day.

Monday / Tuesday

Those ball animals are still rockin around inside my head but I think I have nearly exhausted all options now. This little hedgie is my newest love. His name is Edgar !


A quick trip to the localist of op-shops revealed this little haul.

  • A glass buckle

  • a set of Brand new Japanese hankies (coming to handbag pattern near you soon)

  • Some little spring loaded button studs

  • a little brooch handmade by someone with more patience than I

  • a purse frame that did have a daggy pink plastic purse attached but I removed it for an experiment.

I have also been working on a few bags through the week and will be able to post those tomorrow. I even had a go at a bit of free-motion quilting and I didn't totally suck at it so that was a bonus.

Here is a fuller picture of little whiplash quilt. for those who asked. Now I am off to Spotty for some canvas !!!!


  1. Hi Jodie,
    Me again, love the ball animal yet another triumph... If you ever run out of ideas for the different animals I could think of a few. Just think of an animal and I am sure that you are smart and talented enough to find a ball animal to fit.
    See ya Mel!

  2. Great quilt and I love the little hedgehog!!!

  3. So cute! I love all your wonderful things. You're such a talent! Also, it's appropriate that you featured the selvedge quilt again, because I mentioned it on my blog post today. I dubbed it "Selvedge Salvage" -- you need a little sidebar button for all of us who want to do that! It's such a great idea!

  4. What a great use for the selvedges! Love it!


Hellloooooo !!!!
