hearts and birds

Here is my first little pile of finished goodies to get in the post. Still plenty to get done yet. But I love making these little birds and as you know I love buttons! Having a frustrating time with the machine know how it can be so It was nice to get some of these finished off by hand.

Sorry been really busy...

Hi all, just a flying one today. Sorry I've been a very busy bunnie this last week or so. Not much time to get on here and share what I've been doing. There's lots of half finished orders waiting to stitch up so once they are are finished I shall show you my wares.My poor little lounge is covered in material and a sewing machine, lots of ribbons and buttons. Mass tidy up tonight is needed.
Here's just two little cat toys I can share. The stocking is going down very well with Barney the cat. he's loving the catnip inside,but he's a bit of a boisterious little cat so he wasn't allowed anything fancy on the outside...his animal instinct takes over and his mum was worried he'd chew them off. Can't wait to see some photos of him playing with it. The little pink bird is for a little girl cat named Bean I think it's her christmas present. Her's has also got a little bell inside so it tinkles and is on a long piece of pink elastic, so she'll be having lots of fun. Will catch up soon folks....

Good weekend folks?

Hope you all had a lovely weekend! I've been a bit quiet on here for a few days. Lots of cutting out and no sewing yet so once I have a few finished pieces to share with you they will be here.

Trees and Mushrooms

Out on a little walk I came across these we know autumns here well and truly and it's starting to feel rather wintery already. I love the colours of the trees and caught this one in bright sunshine which made some great shapes on the trunk. These little mushrooms looked great too.

Hearts and Buttons

I was flicking through some of my old work photos and found this. I loved the picture I made for my friends wedding present. This button heart adorned the corner. Sadly the other photos I have of the whole things aren't very good at all. I stitched on lots of varying pretty white buttons in different sizes.


Someone on twitter told me about this site last night I was having lots of fun with it. go check it out its called Wordle. You enter in you blog address or a block of text and it will make it into a fun word picture. You can change the colour and fonts etc..go have a play!

Amelia's birthday picture

I've finally got around to finishing off my birthday present for my god daughters 3rd birthday this weekend :)

Hope you all had lovely happy weekends!! (...despite the awful weather to those of you who got the rain and high winds here)
I got these two bunting all finished on Wednesday last week. I've had some trouble up loading the photos though. At long last here they are. On to the next project tonight. Not decided which one to start first yet.

Here's my first wash bag all finished. I'm rather pleased with it actually! 
Now just a few finishing touches to the bunting and the whole order is finished and will be in the post to a happy customer.
On to the next then!
Approx size 23 x 25 cm. Cotton and fully lined.

Too many ideas

Does anyone else suffer from too many ideas spinning around their heads and little time to explore them all?? My little head feels like it will explode with at the moment with nowhere near enough time to get to them all. It can be sooo frustrating!! Watch this space as hopefully some of them will unravel amongst the new orders I have to complete.

Pink Cat

Heres a little kitty I had done for Halloween a while back and have re-coloured her. Now she's all pretty in pink. I'm thinking she's a great shape for an applique kitty on some of my products.

Little Florals

Here's something I made earlier.

Plain pink girlie bunting

Here's some of the plain bunting I was making last night. It's 5ft 6" and has 6 flags.(this photo I know shows a few more than 6, there's the start of another there too). I can accommodate any length and colour or theme on request. This one is a mix of new and recycled materials backed with good quality felt trimmed with lots of lovely ribbons and bows.
