EXCITING NEWS ALERT!!!


Earlier in the year I made some prototype badges for a company in America called Merit. I'll let Brittany explain about Merit - "My partner and I are "Merit Clothiers"- and our idea is just that we want to acknowledge and inspire people to do good deeds- just like we did as children in scouts. We will be coming out with scout-inspired jackets and accessories that are specifically designed with spots to put your badges."

Anyway, I'm so excited to be able to say that I've been asked to make the ACTUAL badges that will go on sale!!!!! The ACTUAL badges! How excited am I?!!!!

Aprons to fish to fabric!


I love that customers come to me and say 'can you just make.......'.  I'll usually say 'well, I've never made one before but I'll give it a go'.  So here we have a market traders apron, with a large zipped pocket at the back, and two pockets at the front (one with a zip).  I loved making this too, so I may have to make some more ;o)



This is the last of the large plush fish...thank goodness ;o).


 And this is a selection of new fabrics...some for existing orders and some for new things.

Loads To Share With You


Well, it's been a ridiculously busy week again.  Firstly, we have taken delivery of the new studio!!  It's going to be a while before it's up and use-able but it's here!


I've completed an order of 20 birds which will adorn someone's Christmas Tree this year.  How beautiful is that going to look? :o)


I've been at another Crafts Uncovered event, where we work while we sit so the public get a greater appreciation/understanding of what work actually goes into the things we make and sell.





I also managed to get a bit of stock made while I was there for the two days which was great as I'm running quite low!  The heart brooches are a new thing...what do you think?  

((whispers)) I've also made a small start on some Christmas items too!  That's it for now, I'll not mention it again until September ;o).

Preparing...



 ...an order of 20 birds for someone's Christmas tree!



...for my next event, which is at Water's Edge in Barton upon Humber.  Another event where we demonstrate/work while we're at the fair to show the general public the time and effort that goes into making the things we sell.

New Commissions


I've had a couple of commission pieces this week...a lion keyring and this fabulous moustache t-shirt for a 2 year old which will be worn to a wedding :o).  How cool is that!

Another feature...


After the fishy tales yesterday I'm now featured on the lovely blog of Natalie over at Mostly Fabric :o).

I've been busy on a couple of new commissions which I'll show you once the customers have received them. I also spent yesterday updating my Etsy shop where I added some notebooks, pencil cases and the range of felt.  Thought I might as well try it out on there :o).  If you fancy taking a look it's here.
