What a brilliant day I had helping a holidaymaker find her sewing mojo. The lovely holidaymaker had done some basic sewing in the past but really wanted to get back to it. She booked in at The ThreadShed during a week stay nearby. I was very impressed as truly her sewing was sooooo damn neat and tidy. She picked bright and beautiful bunny fabric too and honestly when finished her skirt looked completely fabulous and fitted her beautifully.
I just love to see the finished items leave The ThreadShed and truly the half circle skirt was simply FAB-U-LOUS ❤️
I had such a good time I need to do more really soon … who would like to book in with me?
I simply love how humour helps change perceptions in some life situations. Yesterday we had a fabulous customer at the studio who had a little accident with a carbide cutting blade and unfortunately lost the top of his finger.
A visit to Lee at the studio and the result is a quite wonderful work of art on the top of the remainder of his finger.
I think it’s a brilliantly smiley example of unique and wonderful tattoo art. Just love it!

So… it’s my birthday today and I always get very excited for my birthday gift off The Husband. He is so blinkin’ creative and always surprises me with something extraordinary and very unique that he has made me.
This year was no exception as I received this beautiful present created with the pyrography iron that I bought him for his birthday.
This stunning guitar is going to look absolutely spectacular as an original piece of art hanging on my living room wall but do you know I may even learn to strum a few chords in honour of the fact that this is the first time ever EVER EVER that my portrait has been burnt into a guitar … now how cool is that? ❤️
The Husband always says that if he can draw it then he can tattoo it, and given his drawings are pretty special then it goes without saying that his tattoos are mighty awesome too.
One recent customer tested that with a request for a tattoo of one of Lee’s fabulous Bic Biro skull drawings. As you all probably know Lee has a growing collection of skulls penned in Bic Biro destined for a coffee table book and which we have also printed onto our cool T-shirts and made into very unusual fabric. However, our lovely customer having a tattoo of one of the drawings … just absolutely class!!!
I simply adore buttons. I have a shoebox filled with them. I think I inherited the button-loving gene from my clever, creative Mam as she always had a tin for buttons and a tin for zips (and yes of course I also have a tin for zips too). My buttons are all colour sorted, and some are beautiful, some are ordinary, some are vintage, and some are absolutely glorious. The Husband teases me a little about my button collection but I know he loves me and my quirky button loving ways.
The Husband didn’t need to prove his love as he does this every day in every way, but if I did need proof then he hit the jackpot with this wonderful, original, button art skull made from just some of my adorable button collection …
Truly no ThreadShed should be without a button skull ❤️

A little while ago Trashcan Emporium created our first fabric using lots of Lee’s Bic Biro Skull drawings for the design which we uploaded and ordered at the Spoonflower website. As we were attending a purple themed wedding yesterday I decided to use some of the fabric on a unique bowling shirt for Lee. Each individual drawing has Lee’s signature to it and there are 9 different skull drawings on the fabric in total.
I used a very versatile pattern by McCall’s, which mean that I could literally use this pattern hundreds of times and never make two shirts the same! However, I am in the middle of sewing another exactly the same for someone very special on the other side of the world ❤️
Do you love this shirt too? Or can you see it in different fabrics or colour? I’m happy to make these shirts to order so let me know if you’d like one made for you too!
Blinkin’ love Trash and Woody together … two top blokes, doing what they love, supporting each other, developing each other, inspiring each other, creating amazing tattoos and wonderful art, and also having some fun ❤️
