I was happily sewing along this morning, worrying about saturday and mumbling to myself when there was a little tap at the flat door. Arthur answered it and it was the postman.... Finally my labels have arrived!!What do you think? I'm so happy that they are here in time for Saturday!! It makes me feel really professional to have something with my name on!!

Also...Fresh off the machine today is this little (or big) lovely...

She's made from a lovely woolly fabric which i found for £1 yesterday and there are falling leaves made from brown felt and cotton on the front. The ribbon isn't right I'm going to pop out to sues before work and get something more suitable for it.

Sputiks are done now to! O.K. maybe I should explain. We have a draft excluder that is knitted by Grandma Payne (Arthurs 102 year old great grandma.) This draft excluder is called Sputnik (I have a horrible impulse to name anything new and cute which we get) Sputnik has proved to be quite a hit with all of our freinds (Dave and Shana are the proud owners of Sputnika and Sputkid....yeah thats right Sputniks wife and child) Anyways...there pretty popular at the mo because its freezing!! So I made a few to for the sale.

What do you think?

Evening All!!

TaaaDaaaa!!!! I really like this one..the first thing I said when I finished it was "It looks like somthing you could buy in Accessorize!" Its the same design as the bag posted yesterday except its a little bigger because the sample patches on the front were a bit longer. the tartan fabric is kind of brushed to so its really soft. The buttons on the front are brushed metal.
Hope you like guys!!!

Something A Bit More Grown Up.

Sorry that they are not in the right order I couldn't get them to play!!! I really like this one!! the patchwork front is made from a collection of samples for sofa fabric I found and the back and lining are from this lovely checkered fabric I found. I'm quite proud of it especially because its the first time that I tried to do piping and I think it went quite well!!! What do you reckon??
I'll try and wriggle a few more out for the sale!!
Hope everyone is ok. Oh,thought I'd let you know that theres a showing of Alfred Hitchcocks 39 Steps on at the cinema's the orginal just on a massive screen!!! Me, Arthur and his Mum are going to watch it!! Come along if any of you fancy it...the tickets are a bit cheaper to!!!

I'm very proud of myself!!!! The idea for these Wallets had been floating around my head for a day or so and I finally got round to making them!! I have to say that it's going to be hard to put these into the sale.

The pink and blue one is decorated with two cute clouds and the buttons are all shell ones. The green and purple/fuschia one is decorate with flowers and pink buttons. Keep an eye out!!! not long left now and then you will be able to treat yourself to some lovely homemade stuff!!!
