What does Wimbledon make you think of ?????


I have been making Strawberries as seen in the new Mollie Makes magazine.
Sadley I missed out on issue 1 ( now selling at over £20 on ebay )
I did however manage to get issue 2 and will now have the pleasure of it landing on my doormat each month.

So anyway now I have a few strawberry pin cushions. With a few more unfinished ones tucked away.

Thanks for popping by x

Rain = Knitting

I had work today. On a normal June saturday I would hate this.
However today was wet and windy in my neck of the woods so I was not to worrid. Once home and with a nice hot drink by my side I decided to start on the new ball of wool I bought this week.

After not very long I had the start of something quite pretty that made my day a little brighter.

Sadly I have work again tomorrow, at least I have something to keep me warm if its a horrid day again.

Hope you are enjoying your crafts this weekend. x

sometimes its worth the wait.

It has been a while since I blogged anything, however I could not let this pass without a post.
I recently spent a wonderful day at Pickleberry Papercrafts making something beautiful with the truly fantastic Jane Dean. (Yes you are Jane x)

The day was spent creating this....

There is no glue involved this it compleatly stitched together. fabric and paper alike.

I am going to use mine to store business cards in. I have collected a few on my travels that I have already sewn in. However I am on the hunt for more. So if you have a card that I could add, I would love to see it in my book.

I am going to collect lots of gumph when we go off to the New Forest later this year and make one all about out Holiday. I cant wait.

Well I expect you have seen enough now so I shall love you and leave you.
If anyone did pop by Huge Thanks.
