Spring Collection

I have been working on my Spring collection for a while. I hope you like it. I have had fun thinking about it and making it.

I have good and bad news. The good thing is I am learning how to do good photographs. You will see some of my pictures have writing on. The bad news is that postage is going up. When I have been charging 50p I have sometimes been out of pocket and now Royal Mail are putting their prices up in April. I am going to have to put my postage and packing up to 75p per order. I am sorry about this but I think it is still quite cheap. If all you want is die cut shapes let me know and it will be cheaper.

Die cut spring butterflies

I now have a die cutting machine and can offer ten dragon flies and ten butterflies complete with antennae (not shown here) for you to decorate any way you like and add to cards, flowers, table settings, twigs, gift tags or anything you like. I have enjoyed decorating mine with soft pastels, watercolours and glitter. They are cut from card. Posted by Picasa

Jug covers

It is nice to have doors and wondows opne in spring but that means flies can come in and get into your juice. These beautiful covers complete with nice beads will help to keep your juice fresh and free of flies and fluff.

Easter Bunnies

I love making these woolen bunnies. There is no need to sew or do anything technical. I would like to make them for my shop but I don't think they would post very well so I am making kits instead.

Each kit will include enough fleece to make a bunny in each colour plus an instruction sheet which I have made to tell you how to do it.

You can put an egg on their back or not bother.


Tea light candles in see through holders made from recycled wax and fragranced with either strawberry or cut grass. I cannot put these in the post. They are just for people I see. Three for a pound.

Felts and Dream Pillows

I made these pieces of felt by hand with a wet felting technique. I learned how to wet felt at a home education group and now do it a lot at home. The ruler beside is in inches to let you see how big things are.

You can hang them up like pictures or use tham as carpet and fields for your dolls and animals.

This one has a flower on that I made. Now sold but could make similar ones to order.

This is a herbal dream pillow. I picked, dried and ground the sage myself. It has sage and chamomile in to help you sleep. It is about 4 inches by 3 inches and smells good. Three sides are done on my sewing machine and one side is hand sewn.

Sweet dreams!
