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.

Hi Everyone,
I hope you are well on this chilly day. I've got a couple of makes and a bit of stash shopping to share with you all today.

Yesterday we had a trip up to Birmingham for my Father In Law's birthday. I made him this little coaster from a chart I found in the freebie section of the Chart Shop. I've downloaded a few charts from there lately, The violet ATC I made last week was from there too. Unfortunatly the picture hasn't come out very clearly.

Whilst visiting the Inlaws, my MIL gave me some felt she had rescued from the school she works at. It was going to be thrown out so she saved it for me.

We stopped off at Hobbycraft on the way home and I brought more felt!!! I was missing a couple of colours from my collection, ones I know I can't get locally so stocked up a bit. I also picked up a cute little Mouseloft kit and some mini card blanks too.

I also picked up these very cute bows in town in the week. They are so sweet and will work fantastically for my Great Britain and Royal Wedding themed ATC's I have coming up in a couple of months. I know a certain blogger who will be coveting these! They are by Docrafts and there are some fab papers, buttons and ribbons in the range too.

Finally I've been making some little felt brooches. The pansy design is from the latest Womans Weekly craft special and were designed as hair slides but I think they make fab brooches too.

 And this version too...

And finally this one which is part of a necklace design although slightly adapted from a back issue of a WW craft special. I'm going to attempt the necklace too now that MIL has fixed my sewing machine.

Thank you for stopping by and reading my waffle, please leave me a comment, even if it is just a Hello.
Have a good weekend friends. xx
