Guilt free crafting

I have been busy making some more gifts for the Early bird Christmas, some aspects of life has a way of intruding and it has been nice to be able to switch off and create, smoothing jadded edges without guilt. I even managed a little bit towards recycling, making canisters/pen holders from tins.
Being new to blogland, I am also trying to work out how to create a more interesting space......gradually, but will get there. I have to admit it seems a little time consuming when I'd rather be stitching lol

Recyling - Canisters/pen holders using tin cans

Tea wallets and after altering the pattern slightly, a wallet to hold business cards
I like making the covering for the button, these were beaded


A brooch and the slightly smaller flower is mounted on a hairslide

ipod and mobile pouches
Off to make something different................
