Treats for me!

I hope you’ve had a lovely Christmas? 😀

As usual, it’s been lovely but hectic here, trying to get everything done last minute, even though I vow I will be more organised every year!

I don’t know about you, but I end up so busy trying to make everything perfect for everyone else, that it sometimes feels that none of it is for me at all (apart from the stressing/cooking/washing up etc)!

To rectify this, on Boxing Day while everyone else was engrossed in a film, I sneaked off to have a little peace and quiet, and to use some of my lovely new fabric – for me!

Now usually when I’m sewing, it’s for the shop, so it felt quite indulgent to be making things for myself!

And here they are, my pretty new pillowcases, cheering up my bed – and I love them 😀

Pencil rolls

These are a last minute Christmas commission, a set of three pencil rolls.

I used to make small crayon rolls a long time ago – they started out after wanting to be able to keep all my toddler’s crayons together when we went out, rather than have to scrabble round the bottom of my bag for each one!

A friend had seen one of those old crayon rolls, and asked if I could make her some custom ones to fit irregular sized colouring pencils that were to be given as Christmas gifts.

I was really happy with how they turned out, as was she – I hope the recipients like them too 🙂

New fabric joy!

Lovely new fabric Yesterday this lovely bundle arrived, and I couldn’t be happier with it – I love getting new fabrics in general, but there are a few here that I’ve been wanting for a long time now, so I’m just delighted 😀

Now I’m just waiting for some more ‘Duck and Hen’ fabric for my latest commission, and that’s my lot for now.

Hey, Santa…

There will be some large knitting rolls made up from the new fabrics, and going into my Etsy shop, probably along with some matching project bags. I’m also working on getting DPN rolls made aswell, to give a greater variety of sizes.

If you would like me to make you anything out of these gorgeous new fabrics, please feel free to contact me 😀
