Stars n Stripes

Here are some of my latest offerings, stars n stripes cushions and bunting, realy lovely to make and i freyed the edges, which made a lot of mess lol but i love the effect and think it fits in prefectly with the fabrics

look out for the unionjack version which will be coming soon

we are both very busy making at the minute, we have a 3 day event the first weekend in august at the Riverside festival in Nottingham, we will be camping out too so a lovely weekend we hope, fingers crossed for the weather.

we are also realy enjoying the "Body Shop" that we have started selling too, we have a regular slot on Melton market, (wood n stitches will be joining in after the riverside) it is lovely meeting everyone and having fun learning about and playing with all the products, so if you fancy a visit and play with all the makeup etc we are there every saturday (unless we are at another event)

I'm back......

It was great to be away and not sewing or anything, although i did take a bit of cross stitch with me and managed only a little bit of it, we were out and about too much for me to get much stitching time in.
but it was back to it on our return, i was surposed to be quilting two single bed quilts for an order, they are half done but instead i just couldn't resist and i have been playing with flowers and produced a lovely bunch and to go along with these there are some single hanging flowers and string hanging flowers, always guaranteed to be in bloom!

also new to our collection are these gorgeous, good enough to eat cupcakes, money box/cupcakes and trinket cupcakes

and look at these gorgeous icecream, bowls, i just need some icecream to try them out lol

well back to my quilting i surpose, then we shall see whats next...........
