I have finished the three items that were commissioned off the back of Hampshire Artists, very pleased with them, and now they are ready to send off… It is nice to see them wrapped, and ready to go to a happy home!
both the children are back at school, and I need to get my bum into gear, all the build-up of the holidays have come and gone, the big wedding we went to, the endlessness of the holidays, Hampshire Artists, and then the return to school for Edward and start of school for William. So this […]
not mine I add! Tricky things weddings are, well they are when you have been asked to make a card for a 73 and 86 year old getting hitched! So I made one up, the dark cream version, and showed to the mother-in-law who had asked for the card, it was deemed to be too […]
No more photos I’m afraid, just adding more to what I have already writtern.

Yes another one! and smaller they get too, this one measures 7cm high by 6cm wide! teeny tiny! I really do like these very much, I think they look good, and work well together, though I’m not sure how I can develop them further, that needs to be worked on!
I’ve been planning to get my sewing machine out for months, and you know it is one of those things, where I think, it takes up too much room, too much noise, blah, blah, excuse, excuse! So yesterday I needed it, as I wanted to try something out (that is another entry altogether!), so I […]
Another very simple piece of felt crafting, I really like these, the little purple flowers, and the tiny beaded white flowers, really nice. just listening to the cricket, just a lovely summer afternoon today, just right temperature, sewing, quiet, still….. I know it can’t last!
