Don't you LOVE this?

I just had to share these (with Donna and Richard's permission, of course) to show you what can be done with a little more thought.  

I love the colours they've used and the candle is inspired too.  Thanks for using the pattern, both of  you and a bigger thanks for allowing me to share them too.

Donna's is at the top followed by Richard's.

The third t-shirt.

Here's the third t-shirt.
This is going to be a bit of a challenge as it's so - well, stripey!!!!

There's a pocket on it too but I seem to have taken the photo in a hurry and taken the back side of the t-shirt instead of the front!!!  I blame my BC3 (brain cell three) for that boo boo.  

Decisions have to be made, though, as I cannot wear a naked t-shirt!!!  So I decided to use the Fandango heart doily for the pocket. 

I'll show you when it's finished!!!

Another finished

This is the second t-shirt and it's finished!!!  
This has worked better than I expected as the fabric does boast a 'sort of' pattern to it.  I did wonder whether the butterflies would be lost on it but they do look rather good instead.

Now for t-shirt number 3.  Wonder where I've put it?!?!?!

A new batch of

Over the past year or so I've heard mention that the Roly Poly Tat Bags I made years ago are beginning to wear out so I've decided to make some new ones.  As I've got the Etsy shop up and running (with sales going well) I thought I'd add some Roly Poly bags to it.

Problem is - they have to be made and this takes time!  

Here are 24 all cut out with their various bits and pieces to make the bags.  What you can't see here is the linings which are pinned underneath!

You also can't see the zips either as they've not arrived yet!!!  I waited until I'd got them all cut out so I could 'match' the zip colours to the bags.  I get my zips from Rickety Rose who provides a great service and super zips.

I just looked up in my Etsy shop to see when I started making the Roly Poly bags and it was back in 2008!!  Makes me feel old!!!

Monday moan

Today's moan is about something I've spoken about before - I think.  Facebook.

I have a love/hate relationship with social media and especially this platform.  As you know I use it very little and I think I can confidently say that through visiting my page you'll not find out a lot about me - not even when my birthday is!!!  I'm not ashamed of my age - I'm 77 in case  you're curious.

Recently on my morning visit to the Jane Shuttle Tats Lots page I realised that they'd changed the whole caboodle so that I had to 'switch profiles'.  Now how ANNOYING is that?  It means that I have had to be constantly on my guard NOT to put the wrong thing on the wrong page.  I've tried to merge the two pages and although I use the same email address etc, etc, Facebook won't allow me to do that.

So my answer to that is to abandon the Jane Shuttle Tats Lots page and move over to just the Jane Eborall one. I'm sure this won't affect more than two or three people but I thought I'd let you know so that any followers of JSTL can move their allegiance over to my 'home' page (Jane Eborall) although the JSTL followers may not want to see pictures of my walks and vice versa over those friends who don't want to see tatting!!!  

Hey, it's a tough old world!!!!

To cheer you up (or depress you further) here's a picture!!!!
