The Design Team

I am absolutely thrilled to have been chosen to be on the Design Team over at The Sewing Boutique.

I have received my welcome pack with lots of goodies with a brief of "create a unique and different product to help celebrate the Jubilee weekend".

Naturally I was so mega excited to find this parcel on my mat I tore it open and made something straight away! Of course I can't show you what it is just yet though so keep your eyes peeled.

Talking of the Jubilee, do any of you have any plans?  We will be in Lancashire that week (can't wait) and the place where we are staying Ribby Hall is holding lots of Jubilee themed events which I am sure we will take advantage of.

I have made some of these to take to my next craft event.  What do you think?  They are key rings / bag charms.

I then got so taken with the red, white and blue theme that I just had to make this...

It has been so manically busy round here lately that I haven't had much time to blog.  Also, the sun has been shining so brightly the last few days (rare) that I have been making the most of it.

I still haven't forgotten about the blog post I really want to write about making, pricing, time spent etc in the craft world.  I will get round to it I promise...

The next craft event I mentioned above will be this forthcoming weekend, Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th May at the Welsh Miners Museum (Afan Argoed, Port Talbot).  It runs from 10.00am until 4.00pm on both days so come and take a look if you are local.  There are some gorgeous walks around there and there will also be a model railway.  The Olympic flame will also be making its way through Port Talbot on Saturday so I am hoping it will be another sunny day.


  1. Congrats on your design team place - can't wait to see your fab creations!

    Love your key ring and cushion, very patriotic and pretty!
