Making Christmas Decorations


Been busy hand sewing buttons onto Christmas decorations. I love hand sewing, its very relaxing and certainly keeps my hands away from chocolate! Its my first ever year making Christmas decorations so it's something completely different creatively to what I usually make.

Here's some finished decorations
And some more:
The stockings and mittens are open at the top so could be used to put little gifts in either.

I took over a small table in the sitting room to finish sewing the buttons on the felt hearts. These are all finished now so its time to move onto the sewing machine.

My poor sewing machine is on strike. It won't pick up the thread from the bobbin for some reason, the needle won't pick it the thread. I took the whole thing apart about ten times now but no luck so its time tomorrow for me to find a repair shop.
My awaiting sewing pile has grown quite high and I am actually missing using it. Hopefully it is not too serious and I and find someone to fix it!
Next job, finish the rainbow haired doll reroot, only a small bit left to do so I'll post pictures once it's finished.

Take care,

Welcome to the World!


It's been a busy a couple of weeks! The newest addition to our family was born last Friday morning. He is healthy and happy and totally handsome (I am a little biased of course)
I was in hospital for five days so it is great to be home. His big brother and sister are delighted with him and showering him with love and attention, long may it last!

I'll be back in business next week with lots of new stock and Christmas things to list. In the meantime the feet are about to be put up!!
Have a great weekend,
