Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!

First off I would like to thank all my lovely likers on Facebook and followers on Twitter for getting me to 200 likes and 400 followers respectively!!

You are all amazing and I hope my give away winners Kate (Facebook winner) and Chriss (Twitter winner) liked their make up bag and book ends!!

I've been working on some Christmas Stock - They are are available on the website now
I think these stockings are perfect for your kids (or yourself!) They come fully lined and have fleece interfacing so they are nice and soft, and can be stuffed full of all sorts of goodies!!
My mom used to stuff ours with an orange (though I keep telling her I don't like oranges!) and some chocolate coins, a sugar mouse and a little present. :) Awh, memories!!

These are for me and my husband :)  

The lettering is 30p each letter and I have loads of lovely Christmassy fabrics from Kate Spain Flurry Range for them :)

As some of you who follow me on Twitter know I have been making some items from clay.
These stars are just gorgeous!!  They will be available at my craft fairs as I'm too scared of them getting broken in the post!!

I especially love the scroll hearts :)

But the most exciting thing is these!!!!

Beautiful, colourful handmade buttons!! 

I have been selling my last batch at my craft fairs to test the waters and they are really popular, so I have made a small batch and they are on the website now.  Heres the little linky link

This little Christmassy wreath is a tester I did for Sew Sweet over the weekend
using her wool mix felt and Mistletoe buttons.  Especially loving the large button and felt ric-rac holly :)
I will be making a few larger versions of these this week for the shop.  But if you wanted a small version (this one is - runs to find the tape measure - 4.5" (11cm) diameter) I'm sure we can oblige :)

Also added to the website is my advent calendars 

24 pockets with a large No.24 pocket.  Perfect alternative to the chocolate advent calendars around

Very plain and simple and made using hardwearing linen so it will last for years.

More clay goodies:

I had a go at making some bowls.  I always enjoyed making things with clay at school and always dreamed of having my own ceramics range - well this is a start!!

HOME bowl - has an imprint on it but it didn't come out very well - I may keep this one!

LOVE bowl with lace imprint

Close up of love bowl and lace imprint

Small LOVE bowl with ruffled edges - very cute!!

 I saw this fabric on a recent trip to Cotton Patch and fell in love immediately.
Its so soft and vintage.  It was begging to be brought home, quilted and made into a tea cosy.

It is now available in my new section of the website called Vintage Home

Also a new section is 'Out & About'  A section for all the things you would use while 'out & about' shopping, etc.  

First up is these business card/credit card holders in some beautiful Tilda fabric I got from Cottonpatch.

I will be busy making other things for this section like iPad and kindle cases and if I ever figure out how to put a purse frame together I will be adding tiny little coin purses too!!

So keep checking in and I hope you had a lovely weekend!!

PS:  It's my birthday this weekend so look out for a little Birthday giveaway :)
