I have been quiet on the blogging front the last couple of weeks … not due to a lack of activity, rather a surfeit of it.
I have been getting ready for the Inspired Christmas Craft Fair this Saturday, at Swallowfield Parish Hall, just outside Reading.
I am going to be trialling a few new ideas in amongst my regular pieces …
I am quite in love with these little Scandinavian nisse inspired dolls … stuffed with lavender, I think they would sit equally well as tiny household guardians or as decorations on a Christmas tree ….
And I thought that little fabric flower garlands made a pleasing alternative to bunting ….
And the fair will be the first opportunity to see the newest cushion to come out of the laundry … “we have all the time in the world”
I have boro woven strips of scarlet silk, and then taken vintage dress watches and woven them into the fabric, to make a panel in an otherwise conventional cushion … I am pretty pleased with it, though there is a little finishing off to be done …. (I’ll talk about it some more next week 😉 ).
I’ve added a bit of a twist to my patchwork bags, embellishing them with machine embroidery …
So I’ve been operating pretty much on full spin between this little lot and revamping my Etsy store … so as an apology for the radio silence, I’m offering all subscribers to my newsletter free shipping on orders placed between now and December 15th – simply sign up in the box on your right to receive your special coupon.
