Show and Tell

Sorry this is a bit of a 'this is what I made this week' post, it's a handy way to keep a record of what I've made and when.

The baby boy bunting is finished and sent off and frankly I'm hoping not to get too many orders as it took way longer than the doll garland!




She was thrilled with it and has now put an order in for some kind of fire engine themed one (oh good!!! not said in the least sarcastically)  Watch this space!

I had a request for a peg bag on facebook and had a little play and made these two this week which sold immediately and I've had several orders for more - must be all this hot weather people are actually hanging their washing out, which makes me happy, I feel I've helped towards reducing global warming in a very small way!



Lastly, one of the shops I sell my stuff at has a baby section and they asked me to make some bits to go in there.  I've made bunting and soft toys but thought I'd make some bandana bibs which were so easy but great fun - I almost wish I had a baby to use them on (I said ALMOST!)





I made loads, but these were my favourites, especially the cowboy one.

The garden is looking a bit sad, grass completely brown and some of the bigger shrubs struggling, but I am enjoying the summer, so I won't complain.  With eldest son (Chris) in China, middle child (George) has been away for a week on a lads holiday and husband has escaped up to Scotland to watch the golf open, it is very quiet here, just Ben (youngest), Harry and I and don't tell anyone, but it's quite nice!  We're very chilled out, but it will all change when two of them come home at the weekend with a mountain of washing!  Have a great weekend x

  2. Thanks Jessica, I'm wishing I'd spent a little more time in the garden rather than sewing so it looked a bit more like yours! Jx

  3. The bunting is super but I also love those peg bags! Your husband is very local to us just now if he's up watching The Open (if you'd been with him we could have met up and had a little blog tea party!) Enjoy the peace and quiet. I bet Harry's good company - Helen x

  4. We did talk about it and I would have brought Harry too, what a shame, that would have been fun! He is keeping me company this week, although he's a bit unsettled - he hates seeing suitcases as he knows someone in the family is leaving him! Jx

  11. Your recent makes are lovely, I can imagine the bunting took ages, so much detail - I always struggle on pricing things that take a lot longer than expected, but the result is really very pretty. Enjoy the peace, I hope the washing pile isn't too big when the boys return! Bethx
