Polka Dot Teapots and Aprons

My New Years resolutions to be ahead of the game are working. So far have made a start on a Birthday gift, completed 3 Birthday cards and 1 Christmas card plus finished a Christmas gift, doing well.

Having a break as received an order for 3 aprons from a group I am a member of on Facebook. Just goes to show the power of non-advertising works. Made in cotton fabric, cream with rosebuds and fun polka dot teapots in pink. So pretty and hope my customer likes them. They will be used with her business of vintage china hire.



Have also received an order from a old school friend for a 105th Birthday card, how great is that. A 30th anniversary card and 20 change of address postcards.

Must admit love being busy and these orders give me a break from the gifts and cards for family and friends.

I have joined this week with a new home for Handmade Monday with Lucy Blossom Crafts, click on the link below to view all the blogs taking part.


See you next week if not before and stay warm poked my nose out to photograph the aprons and oh boy is it cold.

  6. I love that teapot fabric! And a 105th Birthday is certainly one where handmade cards come into their own- don't think you'd find many in the shops!
