About Me

My photo
What can I say ... I LOVE CRAFTING. Over the years I have done a wide selection of crafts, including Cross Stich, Tapestry, Long Stitch, Card Making, Beadcraft, Patchwork, Quilting, Pottery Painting, Slipcasting, Calligraphy ... plus others that I can't think of right now. I have however, only recently started to sell the items that I make - watch this space!

Busy Busy Busy!!!

I don't have much to blog about this week.  I've spent 2 full days Sunday & Monday sat at my work desk cutting up material.  Now I need to sew it all back together again!  

 Amongst the pile are 40 tote bags awaiting embroidery before I make them up.  Several thread catchers in various materials, sewers sets which include thread catcher, pin cushion, needle book etc.  

Some of these will go onto my Facebook page soon with prices (really should set up an online store).  

The are some nice fabrics amongst them, but I'm awaiting more fabric from USA that I purchased from a wonderful helpful lady on eBay.  I find that the choice in the UK is rather limited, and is expensive.

A few things I've received in the post today ..... 

The selection above is from a blog giveaway that I won ... more about that here :-)

I won!

I won something from a blog giveaway by Jenna last week.  Wooohooooo  

It arrived in the post today, aren't I a lucky girl.  

I  love reading Jenna's blog as she always has helpful articles posted on there and her step by step photography is inspiring.  Do go and visit to see for yourself.

Well unfortunately, my photography skills aren't anywhere near as good, this is the photo I took.  The flowery material at the back is a beautiful Cath Kidson design apron.  It is beautiful, although I've already had it stolen as my daughter took a shine to it!  Unfortunately, she refused to allow me to photograph her wearing it though :-(

Please take a look at the original giveaway to see Jenna's wonderful photographs of the items ... she does them far more justice than I ever could.
