Today has been a wonderful day, trips to local town to get veggies and essentials, the air had a true Wintery feel about it, the leaves on the trees are just barely hanging on now... Here is what I've been up to this afternoon ....

Well my news is that I've listed fabric storage bags/nesting boxes made by me onto Etsy, Ebay and Facebook! eeeeekkk... am so excited, hope you like... Obviously I will be stocking items on my shops fairly regularly so please do check in and have a look.. I've really loved making these little fabric bags, they are so useful for putting trinkets in and jewellery etc. I can also make larger fabric buckets for storing toys in and they are fully washable (at 30 degrees).

Currently no photos to show you as yet unfortunately due to broken camera:( but I'm busy working on a new knitting project from Ravelry. The Boneyard Shawl in a lovely cotton/linen mix for Summer (ha ha if we ever get it :)) It's quite a simple knit, stocking stitch, but is looking beautiful. Am very busy at mo with preparations for my little one, she is starting school in September, I can't believe how fast it's come round. She's so ready and exciting to go, bless her :) TTFN Kx.

Recently we went to Birmingham NEC for the needlecraft show in March and it was amazing, lots of beautiful sewing ideas and I picked up this lovely tea towel set from a stall called Cross Patch. I couldn't wait to get started sewing it altogether and made it yesterday. It was lovely to do the towels are linen Moda with french theme patterns on with tabs sewn on the top of each and poppers to attach to your oven or cupboard handle. Also I'm currently working on a Crewel work picture by Sue Hawkins called Jacobean Rosehips which is great fun to do... I'm planning on finishing it this month so I can frame it :)

On Sunday afternoon we all had a great family trip out to Crich Tramway museum, it was great to have some nice walks in the sunshine through the woods and to the play area. A trip on the trams was very exciting for little one and furry one - they allow dogs there which is a bonus and we stopped off at Rita's Tea rooms to have a scone and jam - yum :)

A lovely weekend was had by all, lots of walking including a trip to Hassop near Bakewell which is a lovely place to go to with a nice bookshop, homemade cakes and a lovely walk which was still quite snowy... Here is one of the makes I completed for Easter ... a lovely egg bunny cosy following the Little Cotton Rabbits pattern... it knitted up great and am so pleased with it we shall save it and bring it out for several Easter's to come..

Well sorry for the long, long absence (erm ... over a year!!!) I've been quite productive over this time though and have a few items to sell if anyone would please like to take a look below if interested... First up... an Easter Dotty Lamb - this was such a fun knit. I've knitted it with Eco Cotton so it is lovely and soft (may not be suitable for very young babies/children) with black beaded safety eyes and pink embroidered mouth and cute characteristic ears. It's £7 plus p&p. Please contact me if you would like her. Next up... Three secondhand sewn by me cross stitch pictures featuring a lovely Springtime rabbit and two teddy pictures in wooden frames. Ideal for a baby's/child's room. £15 including p&p. and finally... A 100% organic washcloth/dishcloth in a creamy white colour wrapped in cellophane with Cath Kidston ribbon. £6 plus p&p. Thanks for looking :) be back soon with more projects to show you that I've been working on.
