in the garden this morning

i was drawn to the sun streaming down onto the red hot pokers (which are doing really well this year for some unknown reason!) i love the colours of nature around this time of the year. winter is coming, but the colourful display makes it more bearable. *smile*

new / old logo

we have changed our logo!

actually we started off with this one, so we are going back to it - feeling a bit sentimental in our old age!! work has begun on our website / shop (even though we are on etsy too) it's time to take that leap. so we had a long hard look at ourselves and what we wanted - one of the things was the 'old' logo. hope you like it . . . x

today really felt like summer had well and truly gone. sun turned to grey and the drizzle followed.

i was looking through the summer photo's and remembered a day on the beach with some gorgeous friends. this made me smile!

new bunny

we have been doing some 'freestyle' sewing!! what does that mean, you ask? well it's just creating a creature with scraps of fabric and seeing what happens . . . it's been fun! here's the first bunny we made, he's called oscar. he used to be part of a pair of tweed trousers!

had a fun few days at duck pond market this weekend. they had a medieval festival there, as well as the normal craft fair. apart from the rain on saturday, it was a good weekend!!

crazy creatures

we have had some new orders and so the family has grown . . .

expanding the mind

we have just spent a wonderful day attending a course for crafters at ferrers gallery with the wonderful Rachael Chambers. we learnt alot about being more 'business' minded. as we all know us crafters are hopeless at selling ourselves, so it was a real insight! it was also great to meet some really lovely fellow crafts people.
