Techo Geek- I am not (or Vala Do Not Touch)

Not to be defeated with wonky frames, I finally atempted the sunglasses case, here it is with the frame in place. Nothing that spectacular (I know, pun ) but I really dont think I will be making many more of these at the moment, dont get me wrong I love the kitchness of it the clashing poms pom, and bright pink fabric. It's just i've discovered myself and small frames dont get on. Theres no room for manipulating the frame into the frame and it's nigh on impossible to create much gather so to allow extra volume in the case. Who knew something so small and cute could be such a pain. Well I do now.

I have also today been busy unpicking, not my mistakes (that makes a change) but this,
It's a gorgeous corset top I bought in the sale for £3. I bought it for the fabric
Isn't it beautiful, I had an order of black gunmetal victorican frames arrive yesterday and thats when I remembered this top. I think they should completment each other perfectly. I am not sure how many I will get out of this, but even if it's only two I will be happy one for me and one to sell. 

Remember my sweetheart make-up bag, well the other half has been working on the pattern all day (bless him) and when it's done I will be uploading the pics. I have also done a pattern for a bobble bag, (his next typing project) and today I made another so far un-named but the current favourite seems to be the cresant bag (as in the moon, but I'm sure it's not spelt like that.) However the longer I think about it the more I'm not sure.

I don't know how I've done it but I have become a follower of my own blog, my that looks very sad, and I don't know how to remove it, doh.

I have seen the most beautiful corsages made by Taluah Blue on Folksy. I was intrigued to read she made them over a candle. Well this got my curisoity going, so I did a you-tube search and now I want to have a go. Even my eldest wants to have a go. Plenty of water on stand-by, I'm sure we'll need it.

It won't be this week though, I have a stall on Saturday, so I've been making the bags, creating kits and sorting out the jewellery for then (Thats why there's not much on the folksy site yet, I haven't decided what to put on there and what to keep for stalls) And as for the website, well again I don't know what I did, my lovely man spent ages making the background sparkle to look like the night sky, fancy banner etc. I put on some new jewellery and lost all his work.

As I said Vala Do Not Touch, should be on little yellow post-it's all over the house.
