I want to start getting ready for Yule..........






Yes, I am still sewing.........our lovely house is a terrible mess; I know I have a husband and daughter but I have lost them under piles of fabric, along with half of the house. I am so glad to go to work even and leave all the mess behind, and I have never said that before (big smile). I want to thank everyone for their 'can't resists' they were fabulous and got me through a difficult week, thankyou. After the Fayre I want to do a 'Give Away' to say thankyou, to everyone, but I don't know what to make!!!
So if you have time, tell me what you might like and then I will look at all the answers and put a few of them in my give away. I can't think of any better way of starting my count down to Yule than making a few nice things for some lovely friends.
Buy a friend a cake and a cup of tea.... give her a hug make her happy!!!!
Lots of hugs
Lynn xx

Dear Lynn, I sure hope this coming week will not be so difficult for you. Sometimes all we can do is just get through the stuff. So, wishing you well.

As far as you give away in concerned, I've always loved your watercolors on fabric. So soft looking they are, and dreamy.

Sal said...

Your blog is so beautiful,Lynn.

I am sure that anything you make would be so gratefully received..but maybe with a Yule theme?

Dear sweet Lynn!

Here i am sitting and can not find any words to describe all of your things in this post. Can it be better? Everytime i am looking at your new posts i think it is the nicest things i have seen, and everytime that you have a new post it is even more lovely!!!

Your angel is adorable, and is this your moodboard?!!! Well it shurelly makes me in a perfect mood!

I have been sewing the last week! I have not been sewing since my little babyboy was born, but now he is 1 1/2 year so i have more time now. It is so much fun and i just have to make some more things!

I can just dream of your lovely ornament whith black ribbon and pretty bird, or lovely angel or hearts!

Thank you for all today Lynn! I cannot think of any better way to start this week!

Many hugs!
Karin

What beautiful work ... :0)

A cushion cover with "home sweet home" in gentle shades of grey, would be a most welcome gift right now lol!

Hello Lynn. Your joy in being immersed in Christmas Creativity is wonderful to read about and very inspiring too. As for the give away - you have talent for putting together such wonderful creations that absolutely anything would be loved by all and sundry! Have a good week Lynn. Best wishes. Denise

LillaFlisan said...

Everything you create is so beautiful and original.
It is so difficult to choose just one.
But I must say that I love your little cupcakes made of velvet. Gorgeous!

Oh, I am so glad to hear that someone else's house is messy with Christmas. My poor husband has to check every chair before he sits down, unless he lands atop a polar bear, or a stag, or a Santa. And I am perpetually "glittered".

But, isn't it fun! The best time of year.

timelesshome annika said...

I can not resist looking at your blogg and read ervery singel word you have written.It so beatiful and has lot to say.
Every thing you creat have so mutch soul and I can not even emagin who many hours you put in.
If i would wish for thing it would be some thing to put on my worm knitted Jumper so I can show off.I like when creativ things catches a eay and get a conversation going.It feels srange to wish for some thing in words as a grown up.Are you still going by train to work? Lynn thanks for letting me among others read your thouts

Queen of the Armchair aka dzintrastitcheries said...

Hello sweet friend, how very generous and kind of you ...what can I say...all your work is just gorgeous. Pehaps a bauble with one of your favourite birds...then again, perhaps something vintagey...it's all so beautiful!!! I'll be in on that cuppa too. Take Care, Dzintra XX

Naturegirl said...

Lynn I adore the all your sachets and
pillow talk! That would be my suggestion for your Yule gift...but of course any gift from your heart is
a treasure.
I love your inspiration board!

Millie said...

Dear Lynn - I was travelling behind a car yesterday with that great bumper sticker 'Boring women have immaculate houses!' So please don't worry about the current state of yours.

I love your beautiful watercolours mixed with vintage fabric scraps the most. How wonderful it would be to have a lovely little set of notecards with your work on the front. Then I could share your creativity with dear friends interstate who I like to drop 'thinking of you' notes to.
Millie ^_^

Sussi's värld said...

Love the creative "mess".
What a nice idea with your frame.
I'm not sure about the document part yet, but I will practice and practice so I might get there....

Nostalgia at the Stone House said...

How kind and generous of you Lynn! .... all the treasures that you produce are true keepsakes. All lovingly put together and exquisite in every well thought out detail!
Your inspiration board is stunning - a feast for the eyes.

Take care of yourself and don't work too hard! I don't know how you do all of your sewing and hold down a job too....I know that I couldn't juggle all that!

Sanctuary said...

Wonderful! I must say, I too totally fell for that beautiful fairy in this post! Enjoy the lovely creative chaos!

VERBENA.... NESTED TREASURES said...

Hi Sea Angel..I think most of us are
"in the same boat" with our homes..It seems to multiply right.. Love your beautiful creations....Your mess is beautiful. xoxoxo Laura

madeleinemiranda said...

What lovely treasures you have hidden inside your home! I love your 'inspiration board'! (If that what it is...)

I think that anything you make would be lovely, prehaps a little christmas angel for decoration? I'm sure that anyone receiving a small gift from you would be really grateful :)

Take care Lynn!

Lee W. said...

I love the little bird/christmas tree ball you made... how about an ornament?

VERBENA.... NESTED TREASURES said...

I just wanted to add something to you. God bless you.. you are one special angel (sea)
xoxoxo Laura
Thank you for your touching comment.

maminkagirl said...

Hi there Lynn,

Oh I can relate to the messes. Creativity does not thrive in a sterile environment! I love your inspiration board. I have a similar frame that I use for that purpose as well.

Have a lovely day! Loribeth

Henna said...

Everything you create and do are so Lynnish and I think whatever you come up with will be appreciated for the artwork as it is. All your pics makes me so amazed, there is that special softness and the colours are so harmonious.
I hope you´ll find your hubby under all the fabric ;-)
Have a great weekend dear friend!

Hugs Anne

Annabelle said...

Something with glitter....magic from the heart!

p.s.Cleaning house so I can think straight and create.

Sea Angels said...

Thankyou, all of my friends so very much. I really wish you could all come to the fair, we could have so much fun, you wouln't even have to bring cake!!
Those of you who can make it, I can't wait xxxxxx just one week to go....scary

Tracey said...

Good luck with the fair. Im really sad that Im not going to be able to make it! Im sure you will have a wonderful day, will come and visit you soon. x

Vintage paintings said...

Oh, I would love to go to the fayre - however it`s a bit far:) I hope you will show us some pictures later.
I love your inspiration board! Ideas have a tendency to stay "in the air" - but if you have a smart place to put them - it is easier to bring them to life!
For "Jul" - I really like your pretty angel.
Have a nice weekend Lynn!
Hugs Solveig :)
