Red berry hat

Well, I am not very good up keeping up with blogging! Perhaps it's because I spend too much time making things?
And I really must tidy up my work area, I am so untidy when making something. I pull all the ribbons and fabrics out, and spread them all around, and still can't make up my mind.
But I did come across some lovely resin blackberries which I bought some time ago.I decided to make them into this little hat. I am really pleased with the result, even if everyone I have shown it to thinks it is very Christmassy!!

You can see it in my etsy shop here

Rock star chick

Where does the time go? It has been a busy week, but not with making or sewing :(
The OH came down with shingles ( I didn't realise what a painful condition this is) but luckily he got to the GP early and seems to be on the mend.
I have spent all morning teaching my mum (in her late 70s) how to use her new computer and she loves it!!! Hurrah, so I'm hoping she will pick it all up fairly easily.
Then home to make my 8 year old grandaughter into a Rock chick, she is performing in a 'do' on Monday with the rest of her class, a song and dance routine to 'we will rock you'. She really wanted to look the part, so I have spent the last hour slashing a new black t-shirt, adding diamonte and chains and making feather trailing hair clips.
I don't know if this is the rock chick look, but I have done my I keep my fingers crossed. x x x
