Easter Break

I haven't been able to post or read much this week. School holidays and preparations for the little boy's birthday party this week-end are keeping me busy, as well as several orders that I have worked on. So it'll only be next week when I will finally get to finish the new products, let's hope the weather stays as nice as it is now for some product photos. Hope everyone has had a nice Easter week-end. We spent time colouring eggs, but most of all growing our cress-egg heads.

Fabric Love

Here is just a glimpse of what arrived this week. Now the task of cutting has begun, lots of new products will be in the shop this spring.

Have a lovely weekend!

P.S. This is the first time I am posting from my phone with a Blogger App - apologies if it looks funny in any way. But if it is good it will make posting a whole lot easier in the future.

Mother's Day Swap

A few months back I also signed up to another swap, organised by the lovely ladies on the Babyledweaning Forum - it was the Secret Mother's Day Swap. The only guideline was that it had to be handmade, cost you no more than £5 and reach the recipient by today. Now I was so much in a rush to get my swap parcel in the post before we left Spain that I completely forgot to take photos, I hope my swap partner will take some. But today I opened my parcel, and it contained this lovely bag:

I am also very pleased to have found a nice spot in our new garden for future product photos, and the sun seems to be on my side at the moment. Speaking of products, this week I spent an obsence amount of money to refill my fabric stash,  I am very excited about the parcels that should be arriving in the next couple of days. I have worked on a lot of new ideas for the shop and am now looking for a few nice craft markets or similar where I can start taking a table and get out there again.

Have a lovely Sunday, and to all the mothers out there,

Postcards Part 2 Or Meet The Queen of Selvedge

There I was trying to figure out other designs for my postcards when I came across this blog where a lovely lady called Karen gives you all sorts of ideas about quilting and also what to do with selvedge, and she has a fabulous tuorial on how to make selvedge postcards. So now I have turned into the Queen of Selvedge ...

But I had great fun finishing my postcard project. I'm quite sure I will be making many more of these in the future.

Time to get them to the post office and start working on my next project.

P.S. This post has been edited - there seems to be conflicting opinion as to how to spell selvedge and I have now adopted the latter version. I'm sure every version is a little bit right.
