Textile Tuesday

On the first Tuesday of the month Wild Daffodil hosts a photographic challenge, this year the theme is simply ‘textiles’…

Over the last few days I’ve been trying to put together a textile book of my mum’s creative bits and bats, UFO’s, finished work, worn…a complete mix – I just didn’t like to throw stuff out when I knew how long it had taken to make, but there are limits to how many things you can have out on display. Hence the idea of a textile book.

This is my work bench at the moment…

…overflowing with textiles! I’ve got my lace box, ribbon box, trims, quilting cottons, as well as a box of my mums stuff all just waiting for their moment to inspire!

In the middle is the page I’ve just finished, three bible and prayer book covers I can slot little paintings into.

For more textile inspiration please follow the link over to Wild Daffodil…

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!

    Wow, you end up with as little space to work on as I do. I bet the floor is covered too. I think what you are making will help with the grief and will be a super tribute to your Mum and her skills.

  3. I absoutely adore this post!
    So full of warmth, memories, love, and a glorious cornucopia of creativity.
    Your work station looks beautifully organised – my is similarly full, but I would be ashamed to share the muddle of it!

    Good luck with a super project. A good friend told me that a ‘full’ work station was a clear sign of creativity! I try to follow this. You are clearly following the muse- it has worked wonderfully.

    What a fabulous mountain of teeny treasure! No wonder you have such fantastic creations (she writes, trying not to be pea green with envy 🥴).

    Hello Margaret, I’m fascinated and wondering why would you put paintings in Bible and prayer book covers? Curious. I’m looking forward to what you create. Regards Mandy xx

  7. your textile journal is certainly a work of love and you will be finding new things to add to it as the years go by. Such a lovely way to remember Mum and also maybe to remember things that you recall using or being used Margaret x
