Look what I've been up to...

I had the pleasure of making two raggy cot quilts and two name cushions for a lovely lady who is having twin girls. Her reaction to these today was wonderful! These turned out so very sweet, and I loved every moment in making them.
It was wonderful to take time out from all the Chrissy preparations, to make these. Having lovely feedback from the recipients is just the icing on top of the cake!

I've also been making plently of cushions, and towels for my Ebay auctions, alot of which have been snapped up straight away!

And finally this as a heart shaped Shabby Raggy Christmas wreath I've just finished. I saw on Kathryn's blog - Our Shabby Cottage, her tutorial on making these, and I fell in love with it. Mine is just a variation on the round one. I've stuck with soft pinks with some sage mixed in as well! Silver balls decorate the bottom. Hopefully I've done Kathryn proud LOL!
Well I've been so flat out with orders, and everything else to do with Christmas, that I'm so looking forward to Christmas morning so I can just enjoy! My kids are counting down the days, and just can't wait!
Graduation night tonight for my son Jay who has just completed Primary school. High school for him next year... and I'm terrified! Lol, he'll be fine, but I don't think I will!
Best wishes to everyone for a fantastic, happy & safe Christmas & New Year!

Shabby Bags

Shabby Bags...

I've just completed these georgous drawstring bags. I think they are lovely!

Below is the Rachel Ashwell 'Wildflower' Bag, which was my favourite, but it has already sold so I think I'll have to make another!

This one I've used strips of pale fabrics, and it's just so sweet!

Well back to the sewing machine to make more I think!

Best wishes,

Have a Shabby Christmas...

Well, the Shabby Christmas cushions turned out alot better than I imagined! I'm really pleased with them and hope that everyone else loves them as much as I do.

I've now listed them in my Ebay store, with more on the way.

I think the colours are perfect for a Shabby Christmas! I'm sure I'll have many scattered around my house by Christmas day.

New pretty's!

I thought I'd share some photo's of my new cushions I've just listed on Ebay. I think they've turned out lovely. I just had to keep one for myself though!

I also had a recent order for a double Raggy Quilt by a collecter of Teapots, so I used some of the georgous 'Rose Garden Tea' fabric. She has just emailed today to thank me after it had arrived and to tell me how much she loves it. Always so nice to hear positive feedback from buyers...

I'm currently working on some Shabby Christmas cushions.... I'll see how they turn out first before I post any pics...LOL

Best wishes,

Boys Shabby Raggy Quilt

Hi Everyone,

I've just finished this raggy quilt which a customer had ordered. She didn't have specific fabrics in mind, so just let me have the choice, as long as it had pale blue, and was suitable for a older boy.

I think this one turned out terrific! I absolutely love the soft brown/mocha that I've mixed in with pale blue, white & cream.

I think I'll have to make another one, as I just love this one. I also made a matching pillow cover for the single quilt.

Well I hope you all like the quilt.

Best wishes,

My Stuff...


Well I've finally arrived at Blog land! Kathryn at Our Shabby Cottage asked if I was planning on starting my own, and I have finally gotten around to it! I've been so busy sewing orders this week, I've only just now had a few minutes to spare...
