Christmas Swop

I've just taken part in a Christmas swop, organised by Louise from Sew Scrumptious which was great as it made me sew again. You had to send a handmade decoration, chocolates and a Christmas card to a random person Louise partnered you with. I sent what is pictured above - I made the ceramic hearts from a course I did this year.

Bizarrely I now realise that I have been put together with one of my sister-in-laws friends from London - handmadejane. The sewing world is a small world indeed. Anyway she sent some lovely decs as pictured on my Christmas tree, some lurvely chocolates and a handmade card. I was well chuffed! Thanks Louise for organising it!

I'm in I love Crafty!

Have kept quiet about this for a while as it was a bit of a slow start.... but have got my things in this lovely shop in Clifton. It's called 'I love Crafty' http://ilovecrafty.blogspot.com and sells fantastic handmade things from local artists/crafters. Laura who runs the shop is really talented and seems to make anything - jewellery, soaps, cushions.

The shop is just perfect for the things I make and best of all I don't have to stand all day on a cold craft stall.

My retro rabbits seem to be selling well and my son (with a bit of help) has even made something for the shop, which has sold already! Wonder if I should give a 6 year old his £16.....
