Hello and thanks for looking at my blog. I am a complete beginner but hope to show you some of the things I have been working on.

Christmas Fusion

Well I have been busy with Sheena's Christmas Fusion stamps and here are another set of table mats - well almost a set as I didn't like the Poinsettia one so have scrubbed it off and I'm starting again


I also painted a couple of round boxes; here are the large and the small ones.

The lid from above and the side view

the small one has robins round the side singing fa la la etc.

I've also painted my pinny, not an easy task as the paint disappears into the fabric as soon as you turn away; and I've painted a pair of trousers that I spilt glue on.  The pinny will not be revealed until the workshop in October.
The Fusioning Fever has even tempted me to attacking a large canvas and giving it the Sheena treatment.

Talking of workshops, I'm teaching one next Saturday at Crafty Addicts in Chorley so I'd better get my list out and make sure I've got everything I need.

Not only am I a crafter and Fusioneer, I belong to a couple of Knit and Natter groups.  One group knits for charities and we meet once a month.  Another group meets in the library in town every week.  There is more nattering than knitting and a great deal of pattern swapping but it's great fun, and if you are stuck with something there is always someone to help out.

I decided that our local library could do with the same so have started a group on a Friday afternoon and the group is growing as word is getting round.

The next job is to start using the stamps to make Christmas cards - some people have already made dozens.  I'd better get a move on.


  1. Stunning work Barbara, I love the boxes and the table mats are just beautiful. I guess the beauty of using the paint is that if you make a mistake or you just don't like what you have done then you can start over.See you next week, don't forget about the knit and natter group that start's on Wednesday at the shop x

  2. I love the Xmas tree scene mat, although they are all fabulous, you will have to bring them in the shop for us all to have a closer look.
