Playing catch-up!

Wow, I feel like there are not enough hours in the day sometimes. as usual things here have been mad-busy and I am way behind on my blogging - please forgive me while I play catch up in the next few days!

I have bought lots of lovely handmade things over the past couple of months, most for Christmas presents and some for myself - a few weeks before Christmas I bought myself these gorgeous handmade vintage pendants from the lovely Tinker. Elaine is such a sweetheart and makes the most gorgeous jewellery!, what a talented lady she is. I bought two charms from her and she sent me lots of little extras which was lovely!

You can check out gorgeous blog here!
I just love these so much!!!

Thanks so much Elaine, I love, love , love them!


The Glamour girl starts school tomorrow - I can't believe my baby is in year 12, she came to me at 8pm tonight and told me that she needed a pencil case (kids!!!), so I found this great tutorial by the very clever Jodie of Ric-Rac and I made this little cutie for her! It only took me about an hour and I am pretty happy with it, I have never made a pencil case before :)!

I have started a few Emmeline aprons from the Andalucia fabric I bought recently. This is the first line of fabric by the uber-talented Patty Young of Modkid Boutique. I have been following Patty's blog since I first started using the internet and she is one of the designers who has always been an inspiration to me. I love everything she makes and can not believe that one little lady is so full of talent! On her blog she has a list of fabric sellers, I get mine from Lanie Jane , another etsy darling who gets me through the day!!!

I will hopefully have these finished in the next couple of days....

back with more soon!
