No I have't lost the plot and decided that I'll turn this into the next Cookery Blog (although I could be tempted!).

You know when you wake up and you feel all virtuous and you think, I'll bake a cake and then life takes over and you think, Oh no haven't got time, I'll buy one and then you feel well thats not what I wanted so you decide to compromise and use a cake mix! ............ Well welcome to the Betty Crocker of the sewing world!


So Why I hear you cry? Well if you really can';t decide on the fabric and you haven't got time to check which sewing notions you have got and those you haven;t fear not! Sewbox do it all for you with there sewing kits. They also offer a choice of designs so you won;t find everyone else in exactly the same as you. If you are new to sewing and all those technical terms make you run for the nearest off the peg option, then this will be your easy peasy lemon squeezy, moment. Simply decide which one you want, choose the fabric and wait for the lovely postie to bring it straight to you door. Howver the other side of the coin, this could be the bestest present for all of those friends that just need to get back into sewing!!!!!!!!!!

Naming Day / Christening Day - Either way a Special Day!

When my children were small, we only had the choice of a Christening Day, however now lots of my customers and friends have chosen to have a 'naming day', which I guess has the same sentiment, in that friends and family gather to join in this special day for the special baby or child.

So with this in mind, and because I have been asked to add Naming Day bibs to our collection, well now we have. They are not yet on the website so this really is an exclusive!

I have also made naming day bunting which can have the name of the lucky recipient on - one letter on each pennant!

When you think about it, whatever the outfit the baby/child is wearing probably was made with love, is a family heirloom or has cost quite a bit of money, so it makes sense to enhance this with a fabulous bib.

Hope you like them!

Kindest Regards

Spring has Sprung!

Well its still chilly outside but the sun is shining and my tubs and pots around the garden are growing!

I have been watching on TV The Delicious Miss Dahl (Sophie Dahls new cooking programme) which is truly wonderful. Her new book will definately be on my reading list. It has also inspired me to put bunting onto the website. It is amazing how some shabby chic bunting can make a dreary corner a cheery corner.

I have also decided to have a go at knitting some cushion covers from ribbons and silks. Depending on how they come along these too may make an appearance on the site soon.

My great nephew Aaron will be joining us for Sunday Lunch and of course the morning will start with an Easter Egg Hunt! The children love it and I am sure they will all help Aaron along as he is only 19 months old! Later today I shall endeavour to make and embroider a material bucket suitably adorned with a Easter theme.

Whatever you are doing this Easter Weekend, Have a Happy Peaceful one, and relax and enjoy some quality time with your family!
