Well what a February rain, rain and yet more rain, howling gales and so many poor people flooded out of homes, farms and business premises. Train lines washed away, sea defences collapsed. Not sure when this will end but know that with the true British mentality, we will pick ourselves up, dust off and start again. The Great British Bulldog attitude will come to the fore and we will not be beaten. On another note it has been beautiful the last few days, dry and sunny and dare I say a tad warm, not sure how long that will last as due some snow today.

I love bunting be it plain or decorated and think something that is such fun to add to a patio, gazebo, child's room or adults and more. Have ventured into the French flag bunting as a special order along with a 'Sale' or company name before but this time for something a little bit special - Teddy Bunting. These teddies are shabby chic or well loved depending on your slant on this cute and cuddly character. Shown here in polka dots blue for a boy and pink for a girl:

and a close up of the design

Made to order only, easy to post and a totally different gift for a new arrival.

Making lots of Birthday gifts that will remain under wraps until the big days, as some of these are the end of the year quite long wait. I have a private event at a local retirement complex in March so the next few weeks, along with Easter items will see me concentrating on these events.

Stay warm, safe and dry x

A Mother's Love

Mother's are so precious and what better way than to thank her for all she does on her special day. Sadly I no longer have a Mum to make for but loved to make her day special and still a day to remember her, as she is now my Angel Mum in a garden full of roses surrounded by her dogs.

Bookmark Card

Vintage backing paper and complimenting paper flower with a diamante centre. The bookmark is stitched onto felt and reads: A Mother's love knows no bounds, Thank You Mum

Crazy patchwork machine embroidered rose scented sachet with the words: Wishing you a Happy mother's Day with all my love. A lasting keepsake for Mum. 4 different patterns of fabric.

'Mum' Bunting, I love bunting and am thinking of ways to stitch for a variety of occasions from triangular, to hearts and even the French flag. Fun and easy to store and the plan is to add more throughout this coming year.

Crazy patchwork heart for Mum to keep long after Mothering Sunday has been and gone. Slightly smaller heart with an initial. Both scented with lavender

Well that is Mother's Day done and dusted now onto Easter, I am loving the themes this year and so much fun to create for each event
