Triple Goddess towels

And for something different, because maybe I haven't really got enough free time (ha! What is that anyway?), I have opened up an etsy shop!

This duo towel set is made from a gorgeous black herringbone towelling, appliqued with red velvet, and freehand machine embroidered to add goddess details.

 Depicting the maiden, mother, crone (Triple Goddess) - in phases of life and phases of the moon.


Have a wonderful day! I will be posting more items soon x

I love it when ...


I love it when this happens! The lady who bought my Healing Wishes deck and bag set loved it so much she ordered a matching altar cloth!!

The dandelion wishing fabric is so amazing.


 I hope she loves it as much as I do.....

A gorgeous backdrop for photographing card readings too. I love making these cloths.


Working The Light

Once again I have made one to keep and one to share... with their own individual rose appliques....


.... a gorgeous bird fabric as the main body

 ... and my own tags....

 ....


created to go with a particular deck called "Work Your Light"



And here they are together

I am sooo loving this deck... already one of my favourites...

Wild woman sewing


With everything submitted for the show, it's time to show you the wild woman at my sewing machine! 

Yes! My hair just does that on its own.. Hahahahah. 


Finally I submitted 2 large quilts - 12 days of Christmas birds, and 1950s dresses (nothing like the last minute to finish quilts that have been in progress for 10 years), David Bowie, Mrs Whatsit cushion, Hedwig cushion, Unicorn tree skirt, Mrs Who table centre, Spring wholecloth quilted tablecentre and my embroidered birds tablecloth.

Miss 7 entered in her beaded dreamcatcher necklace and a sock owl made from a kit she got from Santa. In another week we will have the results.

Family time

One thing about having a 2 year old son is that he wants to be like Mummy...  

 So whle I was drawing up this design, he wanted to draw too.


And stickers.


Big circles.

Kids copy what they see. Beautiful x

What are you Raven about?

Ravens have been an important symbol for me since I realised they were always flying around, and bringing me messages. 

It wasn't until one very windy Victorian day there were about 40 ravens in the top of a tree at my front fence. The wind was blowing up in the tree tops. It must've been hard for them to hang on, but they clung to those branches until I noticed them.

It took sheer density of numbers for it to hit me.

Since then, ravens have had a personal meaning for me. So when I saw this fabric for sale last Halloween, I grabbed a metre of it. And hoarded it for a while.



 The first bag goes with this Messages from the Guides deck as a set (sold), as Ravens have been a guide of mine, I thought it was quite fitting.

The second bag is mine. And now stores these Witches' Divination crystals that I won. It also has a bird skull charm stitched on. I love it!

My deck collection is slowly starting to get their own bags, which makes me very happy to have started to make two of each. One to keep, and one to sell.

P.S. I am pretty excited about my labels "Sew Rainey Sew".

Inspiration

I am so lucky to have won 5 dolls made by Pauline Crichton now. This mermaid joins the coven and we couldn't be happier.

I am so inspired to make some of my own sometime, and I know I can. What a lovely startup to this hobby I will have.
