Work In Progress

This is the exciting project I have been working on. Project is a big one! Props and things for the school play. Nothing has been finished yet, but all work in progress.
The premise of the play is about waste, and how to rethink how we use things. This skeleton of a dinosaur is made out of cardboard and stuck with tape and will be painted when it is finished. The stand it is on was an old lamp base. I have to keep in mind what i am making will be light enough for kids to move and be made with easily accessible materials.
This is the seat part of a forest fairy chair/stool.
A fairy wand. An apple tree branch covered with beads and jewels from my stash.

I have an idea for the fairy costume, that is going to be shown in the next few days as well as other costumes and props. I am very excited by it all. There will be animals and insects to name but a few, as well as a large dragons tail.

What I am Up To

A few of my readers may have noticed that my blog is a little boring at the moment. Apart from my charity knitting, crochet and sewing, have not shown much in the way of creativity. I have been busy but I cannot show what I am up to at the moment but it is fun and exciting.

Mother's Day Giveaway. Just click on the picture to be transported to where you need to go. Have a lovely day.

Mothers Day

One of my kids offered to take me out today, Savers and Spotlight was the agenda, two of my favourite places to go so of course I said "Yes Please!" So we went to Savers first. Just look at this quilt kit, partially done that I got from Savers in Mill Park today, a gift from one of my kids. I have no excuses Not to make a quilt like, "How do i choose the colours?" (my favourite excuse!) It cost $40 well worth it. I won't be rushing into it though! I want to just look at all the fabric assortment first. Yummy. We did not make it to Spotlight after that, I just wanted to go home and look at it. I had a lovely call from my daughter today too. So Happy Mother's Day to you all. Hope you have a fun day.
