Country & Cats


Last weekend, we went to stay in a lovely cottage near Brecon and I fell in love with these two adorable little farm cats. They were the friendliest little things and I had to resist the temptation to nab them and bring them home with me.

These pics don't really do them justice as they didn't manage to stay still for long enough for me to get a good snap, but I couldn't resist the chance to share them with you.



This little one was so tiny.....adorable!

New fabrics

I've been busily trying out some new hand printing techniques. I'm itching to make them up into some lovely items to sell on my on-line shop (hopefully coming soon!).


Most of these are made using a stamp technique, a design cut out from easy-cut rubber lino then fixed to a backing to create a stamp. It's a lovely technique that creates a nice print while retaining some texture and variety with each print.


I will be posting again soon with the results of my sewing session.......off I go!

Cupcakes and flowers!


It's been a little while since my last blog, as I've been a bit lazy on the creative front lately. I have lots of plans for little projects but in the absence of anything to show just yet I thought I'd share some pics of some beautiful Sweet Williams. I love it when they come into season.


If you look closely you can spy my latest fabric experiment lurking in the background. More to come very soon......



I also wanted to share these oversized chocolate cupcakes I made for my partner's birthday. I have a sneaking suspicion my cake making abilities are improving......Yum!
