As the song from Gilmore Girls says “So welcome to my little corner of the world”. It’s all about me and my crafting – focusing around my love for stitching and sewing along with anything else that catches my eye. So welcome, grab a coffee and happy reading.

Christmas Fayre update

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for all the wonderful comments you've been leaving me lately. I love reading them. I hope today finds you all well, and despite not that much sleep I'm on fine form this morning. It's my day for voluntary work in the cafe and I do love fridays. (that is unless we have a local over 55' group in who are known affectionately as the old age toddlers and can be a handful!)

Well I cracked on yeterday with the decorations and I have a third done and 1 week left to get the rest done - 43 decorations in 4 and a half days not bad really! I've got most of the shapes cut ready, buttons sorted, ribbon lengths cut. It's been these little things I do in the day so when the children are in bed I just sew, sew, sew. I'm waiting for an order to come from the Brighton Bead Shop as I want to make some phone charms/zipper pulls and needed brooch backs too.
I've machined round 3 sides of the fabric sachets so I just have to stuff, add ribbon, buttons and slip stitch them shut.

So here's the progress so far and I'm really pleased as when I laid it out I realised I had more than I thought. So here's to the final 88 that need doing!!!!

Have a fab day folks. Thanks for stopping by, I'd love you to leave me a message even if it's just hi. xxx
