A Little Catching up ...

Phew, a few weeks later lol

Well, what have I been upto, not too much (!).  Had another move about at home and made some new bits and bobs.  Peg bags seem to high on the agenda at the moment, must be all the sunshine we have been having lately! 

I am getting ready for a craft fair next month, so am sorting what items I should take and sewing, sewing, sewing!

I have been experimenting with a few new things; a tutu bag and ring bearer cushions, will pop on some pics, I am really pleased with them!

A quick keyring for Mum on Mothers Day x

The TuTu Bag, I just love this!

Ring Bearer Pillow

Peg Bags - these are in oilcloth

I also had a dabble at making a couple of skirts for my daughter, I think they came out quite well and she loves them, which is the important part!

Nothing like a bit of bling!  Did this with my new toy a Hot Fix Applicator, I have also done a butterfly on a white t-shirt, have not taken a pic yet tho, this goes lovely with her skirts!  (There are not two missing, they are blak stones, lol)

As I mentioned, I am busy making for the craft fair next month in Codicote, so I will upload some pics again soon.

Getting My Head Around TimeLine for Pages on FB

FB chages again!  Now TimeLine is for pages too, so sat at the laptop last night and made my logo fit the new sized box then I created a new banner and, hey, that fits too!  Why not pop over and take a look.

So, now I have received from having my teeth out although I still cant manage to eat normally and eat like a rabbit, I am actually getting on with some sewing.

I made a larger sized coin purse with a special request for a strawberry hangy thing on the zip and matching business card holder for the lovely Emilie at Happy Green Frog and I am loving the ladybird button x

Now I am starting a new ladies wallet purse order in a fab purple dotty fabric, yum!

Been In Hospital

Had a bit of an emergency run to a&e on Saturday morning and ended up staying in.  Just got home late this afternoon!  So now I have a lovely pile of fabric waiting for me to get stuck into and some orders to fill.  But right now I am really tired and off for some real sleep! xx

Welcome Reggie

We became Great Auntie Gill and Great Uncle Jason recently, so amongst the bibs and nappy wallets I gave, I thought I would make some bunting ... so here it is, I have also added buttons onto the flags, they were sooo cute I could not resist, and it will be up high, so no fear of little fingers pulling at them xxx

Then, could not leave it at that, lol, and made some burp cloths as well lol

Good Morning

Well I have managed to finish Sharon's order.  Here is the beach bag ...

And the rucksack ... I am so proud of this one, I used a tutorial from U-Handbags, just changed it from oilcloth to fabric, Lisa is fab!

And finally for today, some burp cloths, these are about 20 x 10 inches and backed with towelling.  Not for Sharon, but a little make from last night!

Not much more for today, my face is really swollen as I have a bad tooth, so am off to the dentist later, wish me luck!

Bunting, Bunting, Bunting!

Wow, I managed to get to the shops, buy the fabric and make the orange bunting today, it's now all packed up ready to go tomorrow, I amaze myself sometimes lol  I also put a little orange rosebud on each orange flag, just thought it finished it off.

The piccie is not very good as it was a bit gloomy today x

I ran a prize draw on my facebook page, a winner was picked randomly from "likes" and the pize was a 3m string of bunting.  A lovely lady won and I just waiting on her fabric so I can make her bunting ... butterflies and flowers, hope she likes it!

Also am still working on Sharon's orders, these are coming along well, amd tackling the backpack at the moment, I thought it would be a little daunting, but so far, so good!  Hope it does not all crumble around me now lol  I am using a tut from U Handbag just love Lisa Lam's site.  When its completed I will post some pics.

Well, it's well past my bedtime now and so before I nod off on here I am off
