This time last year....

Strange to think that this time last year we were snowed in!

Quite different this year as I haven't actually felt cold yet, but that might just be me!

Things here are up and down, mainly down at the moment , no work for me being the main issue : (

But on a lighter note I have been sewing, LOTS!!

Years ago I went through a phase of making dolls, vintage looking cloth dolls. So thought I'd make some more, you know, just to have a change!

So meet Amelia.........

I'm making a new pattern so shall be making some more!

I hope you all have a lovely, creative, week!

P.S Don't forget the draw for my giveaway is Thursday!!!

Christmas House Giveaway

Here I am , bit later than I'd hoped! As you might know I'm having a giveaway, not for any particular reason, but just because I'd like to!

So, I've made this hanging Christmas House especially for the winner.
Its made from off white sparkly fabric with a snowy white roof, little white shutters on the windows, christmas wreath on the door, icy effect beaded edges and two vintage mother of pearl buttons, oh and a wire hanger on the top!
Just leave a comment on this post to be in with a chance of winning this house!
I shall pick the winner (names in a hat) on Thursday 1st December, so you have plenty of time!!
Good Luck x

How Long???

Oh my goodness, has it really been that long since I last posted??!!
I don't know where the time has gone and can't believe it will be Christmas next month!
I have done alot of sewing , all the items in this post are recent ones, I sold the pink house that was on my last post and so I made a different one in red. I've made some more house keyrings, some more house hangies and two hangings, 'Funky Flowers' and 'House by the Tree'!
My latest piece is called 'Singing Hearts and Flowers', the words from a song by Aztec Camera from years ago, it was playing on the radio and I was singing along, as you do, and thought ooh imagine that, singing hearts and flowers, and so I did! Will show you soon.
I have been trying to keep up with all your blogs, but haven't been commenting as much as I would like, sorry!
I am back at it now though, things here aren't quite so manic here now!

I shall be busy up the field now , remembering around this time last year, gotta make sure I'm not going to get caught out with frozen water pipes and have to haul water from the river for the horses, I,m thinking snow again this year!

At the minute the ponies have more than enough water with all this rain we have been having here lately!

Anyway, I,m off for some blog reading, have a happy week xx
