It's been busy around these parts...


Hope you are all doing ok?  It's been a bit manic around here so I haven't blogged for a while.

Last week saw the completion of the trade order for the shop.  Wanna see all the goodies?

Lots of hand embroidered heart decorations, daffodil brooches, heart shaped brooches and bag charms.  Sorry the photo is a bit naff but you get the idea.

We had a very poorly household last week which was tough going.  We're all thankfully on the mend though.

I have made a couple of re-adjustments to the website to include cheaper postage and these wooden buttons are now £2.00 per pack instead of £2.20 :-)

This is the link to them on the website - BUTTONS

Today I have been making lots of leek brooches in readiness for St David's Day.

And having a mega sort out of all buttons, felt and ribbon.  Some American Crafts stash here, also available to purchase from the website :-)

I LOVE daffodils.  I took a pic of them yesterday afternoon which looked like this...

But when I came down this morning they had opened out...

Makes me feel all spring like.

Off to sort the boys tea now and finish some more sewing :-) xxx

  3. Hello - new follower here!

    I love your post on craft stalls! Some excellent advice on there and I love your blog and website and of course your products! I make my own accessories and am in the process of setting up an online shop for them.
