Angels...not just for Christmas

I have revamped my angel from last year (which was flat, and quite boring really), into this gorgeous-ly simple Angel.  She is quite beautiful, I have to say.

I also made one that was not Christmas-sy as Angels are not just for Christmas are they? ;)  I'm currently working on some more colours then they will be in the shops.

A bit of Harry

You should all be aware of my love of all things Harry Potter (and if not, where have you been?! ;) ).  Well, when the lovely Carolyn posted up a picture on Facebook of a Harry doll that she'd made I just squealed with excitement.  She then proceeded to tease me with Hermione, and then Ron.  Well, I just had to have a set didn't I?  Aren't they gorgeous?  They shall be venturing into my Hut on the Patch (ie the workshop) when it is finished.

Carolyn also does loads of other gorgeous dolls, angels and bits, so why not pop over to her page and say Hi.

Advance Warning

My felt supplier put up the cost of the felt last month, but I've resisted putting up my own prices until now.  From 1st December the cost of the felt sheets are as follows :-

15 x 20 cm sheets  - 80p each

20 x 30 cm sheets - £1.50 each

This is still a very good price for 100% wool felt sheets of fantastic quality :o)

I wonder...

....what the customer in SOUTH AUSTRALIA!!! is going to be making with all this yummy felt?

Monday, 12 November 2012


A custom A4 folder cover - made from fabric and embellished with felt.

A custom felt stocking (21cm).  I'll definitely be more organised and make more of these next year :o)

Owl door stops!  Not available online until I make a variation where the customer can stuff with pebbles themselves ;o), but if you come to any of the craft fairs you should be able to see them there.

This was the sewing for last Saturday...the books are going to Italy - my first order there!  How fantastic to think of my things all round the world :o)

I shall be back tomorrow as I received the new felt stock and NEW ribbons and bias!  I just haven't had the time to get them all on the website yet.

Another blog feature!

Amazing Weekend

I had an amazing weekend at the Waters Edge Christmas Fayre.  I met some lovely people including the lady you see in the above piccie.  She was a customer who I saw on the Saturday, then again on the Sunday when she came to take pictures of some of the stalls...and do a bit of shopping.  She's written a fantastic blog post about her day, so why not pop over and say hi :)

Someone is getting their Movember groove on :o).  A moustache order on it's way out today.

Also managed to finished Rodney.  He's filled with cloves so he smells absolutely divine.

What's housework?

There is no time for housework this week.  I'm still preparing while also trying to entertain a child on half term.  Do they not realise this Mum is not as organised as she would like to be?  There is only mild hysteria panic that I will not have enough stock for the November Fairs.  

Here's a few piccies for you :)

Sorry, had to through in the Halloween Pus Jelly, complete with jelly babies ;)

The above three pictures are the Merit badges in progress.

And this is a new hanging ornament I'm working on.  Bet you can't guess what it is! ;o)
