Button Auction

Have you ever paid a visit to my Facebook Page?

I currently have a button auction going on until Wednesday afternoon to UK residents.  If you are interested in taking a look, pop over and say hello, would love to see you over there :-)

Here are some of the lots :-)

Tomorrow is hubby's birthday so I have just finished wrapping his gifts.  He's been a bit spoilt this year with lots of goodies from Fortnum and Mason.  Have you ever been there or shopped at their online store?  It's gorgeous.

Off to do some sewing now (even though its late) but I have orders and other bits and pieces to get done which is fab.

Catch up with you soon xx

Ps.  I am currently planning a long post on payments, postage, how much to charge for products etc xx

Catch Up and Button Swap!


As ever, busy.  Hope you are all good.

I have had the most fabulous weekend.  I have done quite a few craft fairs in the last couple of weeks and Friday and yesterday I was at the newly refurbished Gwyn Hall in Neath.  The first day was rather quiet but I still sold a number of items and made a decent profit so I came away happy.  Yesterday, turned up expecting much the same but it was much busier, my takings were fantastic and met some wonderful people.  A couple of others had a similar day so to celebrate we piled into the pub afterwards.  It was really refreshing to make some new friends and am now planning things for the future which I will have to keep up my sleeve for now...

Photos from the weekend...

I have been meaning to blog about my button swap for some time.  I was paired up with Rachael from Sew Ray Me.  It was really simple, you select 50 buttons to send to your swap partner and in return they send you 50.  I couldn't wait for mine to arrive.  When it did it looked like this...

Yummy chocolate :-) and a lovely pink gingham fabric parcel.

And inside...

A selection of gorgeous buttons.  Thank you so much Rachael.

NOW, I would love to show you what I sent but I am still unsure if my parcel has arrived.  A week after I sent it, it still hadn't turned up which I am very sad about and am hoping that the Easter holidays has held it up.  Rachael, if you are reading this and your parcel still hasn't arrived I'll check it out with the Post Office and then arrange to send you something else xx

Today I have worked so hard on the website to get it a bit more up to date.  Here is the link...

Go check it out and let me know what you think.

I am planning an interesting blog post on pricing and the current market with regard to handmade items so keep your eyes peeled.  

Don't forget you can keep up with my daily ramblings on Facebook -

Fat Free Easter Eggs TUTORIAL

Well hello!

It's rather busy here as always and we have RAIN!!!  How gutting is that after all this fabulous weather we were having.

I was recently asked if I would like to write a tutorial for My Fabric House.  I was thrilled and put together a tutorial for my Fat Free Easter Eggs!  If you haven't paid a visit to My Fabric House, go and have a look.  Some gorgeous fabrics and bit and bobs on there.  They also have a Facebook page.

But, here is the tutorial I provided which can also be found on their website HERE (seen bigger on the website) along with some other fab tutorials.  Please use the tutorial for personal use only or I won't be a happy bunny this Easter :-)

I have had a lot of orders to get through the last couple of days and am currently working on 15 metres of bunting.  That's a lot of bunting!!  I will make sure I take pics to show you.

I have also made some garden theme cushions which have been proving popular.

I will be closing the website down for a few days shortly to give it a bit of an update.  Lots of new things to be added and other things moved around so watch this space...
