Oliver Twist and Buttons:


On Saturday I went to Southport to the Sewing and knitting shop and I have been booked to teach a work shop on Journal Covers on the 20th August. The lady of the shop Sue asked if I could design a cover using Oliver Twist stuff and buttons as she sells both in her shop and she would like to promote them through the workshop. Of course no problem as I also love working with both of these products. So I purchased a few bits and pieces and her is the finished product. I am really pleased with it, I adore blues and greens together and luckily i had the perfect Batik fabric for this cover. i am particularly pleased with the flower I have made using the silk pods. I am hoping to go back today to buy some more to make a few into broaches as i think they will make nice little gifts for selected friends.
