Celebration Give-away

I've reached over 500 sales in my Etsy shop so I'm having a little give-away to celebrate.  You can leave a comment here or over on the facebook page photo and I'll draw a name out of the hat on Monday. 

No more rules, and I'll post anywhere :)

**** The give-away has been drawn and is now closed.  See my facebook page for further details. ****

Here's my Christmas decorations for this year.  There's a new tree, new mini stockings, the ever popular snowmen and a new sheep.

I have updated the Rudolph by enlarging him, there's the fabric stockings and the Angel, 

the wreath, a new Santa and a new Gingerbread man.

This little jewellery box belonged to my Mum.  It now belongs to my sister, but the lining had come out from years of use.  She asked if I could re-line it so I've used my red felt to do it.  :)

Lost ;)

Whoops, it appears I lost the month of September!  Never mind ;)

I've had my eye on a twig tree for months, and finally managed to get one so I've been having a play with some of my stock.....

I've had an open day at The Hut and a fair at Bransby Horses to keep me busy, and now we're heading towards the madness that is the Christmas Fair season.

Nearly over..

The holidays are nearly over, then normal service shall resume ;)  I have managed some stitchery but I shall save that for another post.  In the meantime, there have been skatepark visits...

..walks past the deer farm...

..adventures to the beck for splashes... afternoon at a WWII re-enactment..

..and trips to the woods.  We have had many other trips where I forgot to take any pictures ;)

I shall be back to normal soon.

The Tale of the Three Brothers

Anyone who has seen the Harry Potter films will remember the Tale of the Three Brothers.  I love the way the story is told, so I commissioned my brother to put it onto canvas for me.

I love it :D

I'm back :D

We've had a very hectic couple of weeks here.  First we had the Waddington Airshow...

then we went to the Harry Potter Studio Tour....

..then we went to London, where we went on the London Eye, then down Whitehall to Trafalgar Square, through the Admiralty Arch and down the Mall to Buckingham Palace.

Next we took the kids to Lego Land for a couple of days (which was a complete surprise for them).  We treat ourselves to a night in their hotel too, which was amazing.  

We also had a day in York, where we went to the National Railway Museum.  

Now I need a rest to get over it all, but I have to catch up on orders instead ;)

This is the latest in my journey into the world of square cushions - a commission based on the mermaid card. There's a variety of others from patchwork to re-purposed jeans :)
