Septembers Photo Challenge.

It’s the first Tuesday in the month so it’s time for Wild Daffodils monthly photo challenge. This month is quite a challenge as the theme is case. I’ve decided to take that pretty broadly to include boxes, caskets…

This is the wooden box I keep my main embroidery threads collection in. I say main, as I’ve now got an overflow box as well. This was my mums box, I’ve recovered the top with a pretty floral fabric. It looks lovely in my sewing room.

This is the quilt I squeezed into my suitcase to take to Australia as a wedding present.

I found a good way of spotting my suitcase on the airport carousel, a little left over strip of Kaffe Fasset fabric!

Wouldn’t you just love to be able to make something like this! This is an embroidered casket in the Victoria & Albert museum, it is stunning.

I use this holdall instead of a case when I go away for a weekend, I love it, I made it from Ikea fabric I was given as part of a Secret Sewing Santa. The pink zip and the blue handles work really well.

This photo challenge is organised by Wild Daffodil, why not follow the link and see what cases everyone else is sharing.

 

 

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!

    Great to see that beautiful quilt again.
    Love the holdall, the blue handles and pink zip give it even more oomph! I can’t tell you how many things I’ve made with that Ikea fabric – but, amongst others, I’ve covered two breakfast bar stools with it and even made a casual skirt.

    Love your Mum’s box and wonder at how you file your threads. Numbers? Colours? We all have different ways, don’t we? And your hold-all is AMAZING!

  5. What a truly amazing post! A feast of delights. Your embroidery thread collection is stunning, how wonderful to be able to use your Mum’s box. That quilt is absolutely beautiful, a fabulous heirloom gift. I’m going to adopt your way of identifying luggage – perfect, it would cheer me up to see that on the carousel. I’m so impressed with your hold all – love the zip and handles – inspired. Thank you so much for this entry in the Photo Challenge. 😀 ❤

    I love the stumpwork casket, I have always fancied trying my hand at stumpwork, but early forays were not promising.
