Highlights of my week!

A really friendly christmas shopping evening at Navenby School.

A fantastic course with Janine from Smashing Chintz at Hope & Elvis.  So much fun using the tile cutters to cut up plates and bits and bobs, positioning them and gluing them on, we all got very absorbed!

 My mirror 
 Some of my bits (I didn't use this elf in the end)
 Some of Janines beautiful mosaics
Pretty teapot! I made one of these! 

Beautiful Christmas Tree 
A rare moment of peace and harmony at home playing Moshi Monsters I think (on my very messy desk!) 
Very early morning sewing making a new set of Wedding Bunting for a wedding fair this weekend
and very late night sewing, final 150th metre coming off the machine!

This morning I went and put up the bunting in the marquee, it looked beautiful! I'll go back at the weekend and get some pictures when everything else is in place and I hope to post pictures of my mosaics once I've finished tweaking them!

Off now to attend to this SHOCKING pile of ironing! (Definitely NOT a highlight of my week!)

Beautiful Wedding Bunting

My poor neglected blog!  November is turning out into a month of deadlines and mad panics to finish things for craft fairs. Sew, pack, craft fair and then moving on to the next one!
After spending last week frantically sewing for last weekends craft fair, (which was a brilliant fair, lots of lovely people and, really, really, busy!) this weeks project is 200 metres of lovely wedding bunting for next week!

Lovely fabrics waiting to be cut into bunting flags, so pretty, all Tanya Whelan, I have lots of off cuts which I'm hoping to make into a quilt, but I imagine that will be after xmas now!

And here they are all waiting to be sewn!  I think this is going to my new favourite set of wedding bunting! (It will be available to hire through

That is today's job!

Hope to be back to normal blogging soon!  Only two craft fairs left this month, then I'm leaving December free to catch up and start on Christmas xx
