Sew help me!

After seeing my last post Alix from bigbluebed contacted me (thank God I'm not the only one struggling with motivational issues!). She had a idea - how about setting up a group online
for other local crafters where we can motive each other and people like us who are struggling with getting 'crafty'. I thought this was a fantastic idea and Sew Help Me was born! We are on flickr - it is a private group but if you are in Hampshire and are in need of some motivation, moral support or just after crafty chat then leave a message for me or Alix and we can send you an invite.

The group thing maybe working as I made two felt items for a friend at works birthday. The above is a Skully brooch (which I'm worried maybe a little to big but it could work!) and below is a Mario power up star (which I'm actually quite pleased with!)

I've not been very successful with my New Years resolution to make more of my etsy and Folksy shops so far this year! I haven't even made anything for about a month and a half. I was so excited back in December, just discovering my new love of felt and I had so many ideas and then came Christmas and New Year and I got distracted. I think this is the laziest I've ever been! I've ordered lots of lovely felt and buttons from etsy so I'm hoping when they turn up I'm going to be re invigorated and make lots of lovely things. Well heres hoping anyway......
