Valentines card production

Valentines is always a busy time for me, my handmade cards are really popular and I get orders from shops & museums. These are Welsh versions, Cariad means ‘My Love’ in Welsh. All my cards are available to buy from my Folksy website, click on the link at the bottom of this post.

My First Ever Quilt!

15 Oct

Here is a picture of my first ever attempt at making a quilt, I made it for my little nephew who was Christened on Sunday.

I used the ABC 123 Moda Jelly Roll available from Trixie Lixie


The backing fabric is from the Moda Oh Deer range also available from Trixie Lixie  and the bias binding is a new product that we are stocking and will be available as soon as I get a chance to put it on to the website!

Here is the gorgeous James on his new quilt!

Two little skirts

21 Jul

I had lots of small pieces of fabric left over from other projects so I thought I would make a couple of summery skirts for my two smallest nieces. It also gave me the opportunity to practise with my new gathering foot for my serger. To finish them off I have trimmed them with contrasting gingham ribbon.




More knickers

8 Jul

Today I made some more knicker’s they are quite quick and easy to make and you only need a small piece of fabric so I think I will be making loads more. One pair of these I will keep, the other pair are going onto my Folksy site so if any one wants to buy them use the link on the right.





Spotty Knickers

7 Jul

Today I made some spotty knickers, after making the French knickers I thought I would give ordinary pants a go, they were surprisingly easy once I had worked out the pattern pieces.




Tom & Jerry

6 Jul

When the kids were little they made these paper mâché money boxes with Daddy! They have been put to good use and now sit on a shelf in my bedroom gathering dust, I think I am going to start putting my loose change in them so that when I get grandchildren they can have something nice!
