Patchings Christmas Market

Today I went to visit Patchings Farm Christmas Fair... and what a wonderful day!
All the craft stalls were beautiful and had some really unusual items... I got lots of Christmas shopping done!
I really want to exhibit there next year! I'm going to call them tomorrow and see what the situation is!

Knitting & Stitching Show @ Harrogate

This last few days I have been working at The Harrogate Knitting & Stitching Show.....
I have just arrived home and I'm shattered! But thought I would share some beautiful photos of fabrics and wool... they should inspire you do start sewing or knitting!

I worked opposite this stand all weekend.. and I just had to go and look at the patchwork fabrics when ever I had a spare few minutes! I now want to make a wonderful frayed quilt for my new house. Check out Fittlesticks here
Gorgeous wools by Serenity Knitting

Embroidered Christmas cards have been added to our website

As you can see, I have been really busy over the weekend and made lots of embroidered Christmas cards!
The gingerbread man & heart are designed by me, and then embroidered onto 100% cotton fabric. I have appliqued a piece of handmade 0r textured paper, with a blanket stitch to each card and then attached the cut our embroidery design.
We have several Christmas gift / craft fairs coming up over the next few weeks, so I thought I should make a few cards ready! I have also added them to our website tonight.
We are selling them at £2 each or six cards for £10.00.

Embroidered Christmas Decorations

Just thought I would show you some embroidered Christmas decorations and cards that I have been working on tonight!
The hanging hearts are £6 each, they are finished with East of India ribbon and a wooden button. The gingerbread man is lovely, but takes quite a long time to make so I haven't made too many yet!
I love the Christmas napkins, they have the same heart shape as the hanging heart decoration and Christmas cards.. so everything matches!
I have been working away with work all week, and had lots of time to do hand sewing while I have been in the hotel in the evenings... also, i used the hotel as a backdrop for some of the photos!
Items will be added to our website over the weekend.
