Twill tape.

This week my creative space is in full on preparation mode for the Lake House Produce market this weekend. Every other year we've had tables laden down with fruit and veg and eggs but this year due to all the flooding we wont have as much as usual.

This year we are making the most of what we do have.

This week I am concentrating on making things look gorgeous. Good enough to eat.

In between all the family and house stuff I am collecting berries, picking plums, making jams and baking. And in between all that I've been feeding cotton twill tape through my sewing machine to make fancy ribbon. I bought it at an oppy years ago and its been sitting here waiting ever so patiently to become something.

The ribbon will be tied into pretty bows to decorate all the bags of goodies we'll have for sale on the day and to hopefully direct a bit of traffic to our website. Its a bit tricky don't you think?

Its a pretty noisy business I tell ya. I can only manage one bobbin at a time. I wonder if you can get a silencer for your sewing machine....

So what's cooking with you?

See ya!

  4. Oh wow, what a clever machine. I have a quilting sewing machine which you can use software to do things like that but I have no idea what to do. Must look into that. Looks great, all the best for the market.

  9. Well done on the twill tape! I tried to do that with my machine but I think my tape was too narrow and it just smooshed up. Either that or I didn't run it through my machine straight.

    Anyway, seeing your lovely tape has inspired me to have another go...with some wider tape. :)

  19. What a clever machine (and a creative machinist!) Best of luck at the market. If we were still in Victoria I would come and buy your jams!

    I have such lovely memories of a holiday in your town with my then boyfriend (who is now my hubby). Daylesford is one of my favourite places in the whole wide world :)

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
