"Grandma, what big eyes you have!"

I've been designing and making some new glasses cases over the past few days. These are designed for Granny's and Grandad's with a few variations in the wording.
I'm really pleased how they turned out.

They are in my NOTHS shop (link over in the side bar)

Their website has had a revamp and it's so much better, much clearer and fresher looking.

Right, off to do more sewing. I've got lots of ideas buzzing round in that head of mine. Pop back soon won't you?

Blanket boiling!

Well, I returned to the Charity Shop on Saturday and bought two old (actually 'Vintage' sounds better!) blankets. I was assured they were clean so that was comforting!

I cut them in half and put each half in the washing machine and put them on a boil wash and waited.............and waited..............and waited. I'm not the most patient person when it comes to things like this but the waiting was worth it. I threw it into the tumble dryer and out came a felted blanket soon to be turned into the needle case below.

I'm really happy how it turned out and have started making more. I should have taken more photos of the inside but I'm having HUGE problems uploading photos onto blogger today and to stop me hurling the computer out of the window I'm afraid the one photo will have to do!

I'm also in the process of adding a link from my blog to a shop where some of my bits and bobs that I don't list on my Not On The High Street shop, can be purchased. Please leave a comment if you are interested in any of my goodies.

I have also been busy designing and making more bags for NOTHS and here they are.

I had taken lots more photos, as there are other designs but as i say blogger didn't want to play today so I gave up!

However, they will be listed in the shop later today with more photos.

Off to do some more sewing.

Have a good day!

My computer isn't behaving today and the light isn't good for taking photos for NOTHS, so it will have to be a trip to the coast at the weekend for me and my camera;)
