It's nice to be on holiday now. Hopefully lots of productive crafty time over the Easter break.

Still no cards made but the sewing machine has been busy!

These are just so much fun (and so easy) to make!  I'm just loving all the wonderful Kaffe Fassett fabrics.. need more!!

This is the last one for now.. made for a friend.

A lovely Sunday morning!


Well we lost an hour with the clocks going forward last night! One less hour to enjoy of this weekend! So far it's been a great weekend!

No cards from me this week.  What started as a card ended up as a picture!

Made with a Doodlebug die (for Sizzix).

It's Challenge Time Again!


And another month passes meaning Design Team B are up again on Lil Patch Of Crafty Friends!  And this time we have gorgeous images from our amazing sponsor, Lemon Shortbread!

I was delighted to have this gorgeous Digi to play with. There was so much detail on the image I decided to keep the rest of my card really simple.  I might add flowers to it though.  But for now.. here she is!

Why don't you pop on over.. see the DT cards and all the amazing entries, and join in! 

Have a lovely day!

More sewing!


I think I could get hooked on a new hobby (even more so if it didn't involve ironing!!)

Made another log cabin cushion cover. This time using some of the Kaffe Fassett fabrics that I've been drooling over!  It was so hard to make the decision to cut them!

These really are great fun to make!

Here we are on a Monday again. At least the weather has improved and the snow is gone!

I had a very lazy weekend and was totally spoilt for Mothers Day yesterday!

I even managed a wee bit of crafty time with the sewing machine and made a replacement cushion cover using the log cabin pattern (first attempt!)  So much fun!

I'd like to try it again with thinner strips - these were 2.5" with a 0.25" seam allowance. So the whole thing only took me just over an hour.

The postman has been a few times this week.. bringing me some lovely batiks and some more Kaffe Fassett fabrics.  They are so gorgeous I don't want to cut them!

And lastly, I did make a card!

Have a lovely week!

Getting prepared!


So the weather has been bad.. the "Beast from the East" arrived in style and seems to want to hang around with more snow today.
One good thing about weather like this is you can really make the most of family time, keeping warm and cosy doing relaxing things (apart from clearing snow away.. obviously!)

I've been doing a lot of cross stitch recently, and not so much of the paper crafting.  And it was tempting with Mothers Day coming up to just nip to the shops.  But no.. I stuck with it and tried to find my papercrafting mojo and made this mothers day card...

The papers are from the Watercolour stack by Die Cuts With A View.   I had good fun making this one.  And used some Inca Gold to add a bit of extra shine to the flower and leaves.

Postman delivered a wee parcel the other day (and hopefully more to come this week).. some gorgeous cotton fabric by the fabulous Kaffe Fassett.  The colours are amazing and the patterns so bold.  Not sure what to make.. I really do need to change some of the cushion covers so maybe that could be my next project!

Whatever you are up to.. have a lovely weekend!
