Whoops!. . . I told myself I really must save my money until payday but just couldn't resist buying some craft books created by the super talented Cath Kidston. They are jammed full of great crafty ideas now I just need to decide which one I will attempt to make first :-)
Oh and one last thing I think it may be time for a new bookcase, as it appears I have no room to store my new purchases . . :-/

My blog seems to of come to a complete stand still, but the past few weeks have just been mental. I have been really busy setting up my website, making lots of beautiful crafty items ready to sell, preparing for craft fairs, creating a logo, are to name a few! But I have made a promise to myself that I WILL try harder to blog more!!
Above is a cushion I have recently been working on, the case itself is made from hand dyed silk. I have then embroidered a quirky floral design using a variety of embroidery techniques and hand beaded some areas to add interest and texture. The flower heads themselves are made from pieces of hand printed fabric which I have screen printed with my designs. I have really enjoyed making this piece and feel very inspired to create some similar pieces.
