Hither and thither

hither and thither, adv. in various directions, esp. in a disorganized way. e.g. Bloom is running hither and thither, from one project to another, as her brain races ahead of her fingers.
I have been working with felt, lots of fiddly cutting with small scissors, but it will surely be worth it. 
The design is a table centre by Mandy Shaw of Dandelion Designs and is from Australian Homespun #109. It reminds me of scherenschnitte, a form of German paper cutting which I love.
Progress on the hexagons is slow but steady.
My 'local', Marally Craft, generously sent me home last week with fabric panels and coordinates to play with: 'Animal Party Too' by Amy Schimler for Robert Kaufman ...
... And 'Pretty Paisley' flannels by Lesley Grainger for Robert Kaufman. I am planning a new pattern that might make use of all those cute panels that I have stashed in the cupboard over the years! So I have plenty to keep me off the streets :) Hope you too can find some time for creative pursuits this week.

  1. oh my! your felt cutting is gorgeous! I must try some - but I shall need some super sharp scissors I think - what kind of scissors are you using?

  3. The table centre looks so lovely. Well done.
    Gorgeous fabrics from Marally. Have fun creating :)
    Hopefully I'll get some time to pop in there when I'm
    in the area in the new year (if I can talk my Master 9
    into it!! ...might have to do some bribing on that one)

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a message. I endeavour to reply to each & every one of your comments, but forgive me if occasionally I don't - life just gets in the way sometimes! Be assured your comments are ALWAYS read & appreciated. Best wishes, Bloom.
