Cushions n' Cosies...

I feel I have been sewing cushions and cosies in my sleep; here are some of my favourites.  The lady in the green specs. reminds me of Diane Keaton in that Woody Allen film, whatever it was called??

It's Raining Men...!

Have been really busy with orders for the past two weeks, but I am back on the blogging now!  Here is an order that went out to a lovely shop,  I am delighted to stock it.  It was really nice to do an order of 'just men' for a change!

Mr and Mrs...

These cushions are for a good customer of mine; they are for the couples Camper Van, which is to feature in their wedding.  I thought this was a really sweet idea!

My Friend Vanessa

Went to a book launch of a lovely friend of mine over the weekend at the brilliant  'Much Ado Books' in the picture postcard village of Alfriston.  Her book is called, Crocheted Accessories, and it is stunning! One for the craft shelf I think, you are a very clever lady Vanessa!

Stop the Car, a Fete!!!

Aaahhh, the sight of flapping bunting in the summer breeze, the sound of children laughing and people clapping the winner of the 'waggiest tail' in the dog show.  The Summer Fete season is well and truly upon us.  As I enter the field my first thought is, 'where is the bric-a-brac table???' (swiftly followed by 'is there a Pimms tent?').  A rather good 'bounty' from this particular fete I think, especially the lovely, and in parts faded, 1950s curtains, Pins and Needles magazines (a bargain £1) and 5 reels of Sass & Belle ric-rac! 

(Not sure I will be taking tips from Beryl for Top Fashion though!)

A Very British Holiday...

I am finally back from my holiday in North Norfolk; lots of Gastro Pubs, fish n' chips, buckets and spades, Hollyhocks, bunting, changeable weather, colourful beach huts, art galleries, delis, sandy beaches, crabbing, fetes, huge skies and ice-creams.  Jolly nice...
