Wow Wednesday No. 16

What a beautiful past week and the sun with the blue sky make such a difference. The garden is beginning to take shape and hope will not be long before we can sit for coffee under the roses.

On a summer theme and dreaming of the sea, with cool lapping waves, a warm breeze and must not forget the delicious taste of ice cream:

Delicate shades of mint and strawberry in wrapped waffle cone, how cute are these?

Wow Wednesday Week 15

Slowly getting back to normality and after a visit from the BT engineer now have superfast broadband, which makes working online so much quicker.

These button necklaces were made a few weeks ago but have felt just too cold to venture into my workroom to photograph and being lazy could not be bothered lugging all the light tent etc up to my sewing room. I have been wanting to do some bread and butter items but that is not always easy, however happy with the results. The pink rosebud is for me but may add to the collection, just need to order some more of the fairy frost silver fabric.

They hang on a 23-25" ribbon necklace with a lobster clasp and measure approx 38mm across.
Being added to my website and Wow Thank You shop.

Show and Tell Monday with Make Mine Pink

A long time since a show and tell Monday and think something we should revisit, so here goes.

Been laid low for a while with pleurisy and finally felt better yesterday, so much so that thought a gift for myself was in order. I bought this remnant of Paris and pink glitter roses postcards some time ago, with no idea what I would do with it. Sunday it spoke to me and a simple bag for everyday use with a matching fabric flower with a beautiful diamante and crystal centre (from my new supplier
 'Ribbon Girl') and had to add a charm of the Eiffel Tower, Ooh La La.

Hoping this is the first of many more Show and Tell Mondays to come

Blogging Thursday Week 14

Still waiting for Spring to be sprung and now have wall to wall rain, think we could all do with the better weather. Not much to show this week as have been laid up with a dose of pleurisy so taking it easy. Shiloh has been avoiding the rain showers as does not like getting wet.

Below is a sewing birthday card and needle case for a family birthday this week, both I have had reports have gone down well.

Rose needle case

Hope to be back to normal next week with a lot more goodies to promote.

WTY Week 13 and Afternoon Tea

Easter is over, chocolate overload, the bunnies have vanished back into their burrows to keep warm and brace out another 2 weeks of this unseasonal weather. Spring has not yet sprung although some of the plants think it is about time.

A new collection: Afternoon Tea

Quintessentially English and with the anniversary for Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice this collection just had to be added. Had made a Mad Hatter tea cosy some time back but wanted to extend the range to include not only linen's but also stationery from gift cards to tea party invitations and tags.

Peach Tea

Grey Tea

Green Tea

Vanilla Tea
