Here Come The Boys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My husband says I am obsessed! He may well have a point. Its better than eating loads of chocolate or being obsessed with gin or Jon Bon Jovi if you ask me.
As promised, the little boys are finished. Please meet


And Benjy

Are they cute or what?

I have also made some dedicated gift bags for these. What do you think?

Makeover for Belle

I know I am picky but I just was not happy with Belle. I had tried different ears in garter stitch, but was not convinced they looked right. So last night I made her some new ones and the sharp eyed ones amongst you will notice the makeover has put a bigger smile on her face as well as mine.
Little brothers may just be completed tonight. Please dont hold me to hat tho, as I have had a busy day what with work, cookery club and usual daily stuff. I will try. I am dying to see how they turn out with their little jumpers. Just have to watch lots of Gilmore Girls to keep me awake.
BTW I am dying to do some elephant versions of these, so if anyone knows the head shapings for jumbos I would love to hear from you. I guess I shall figure it out but it never hurt to take advice.

Busy Busy Busy, Perfect Purses in Norwich

I mentioned a while ago that I shall be selling at the Handm@de Cambridge event on Saturday 4th April, more details nearer the time.
I have been approached to participate in a sale/exhibition on Saturday 14th March at the Norwich Playhouse. So the scissors, sewing machine and hands have been flying to make sure I have enough stock. If you are in Norwich on Sat, do stop by. There will be other people there with handmade jewellery, a masseur specialising in women and children and other exciting goodies. Doors open at 10am until 5pm. Come and get your Mum a lovely gift for Mothers Day.
Here are some new bags ready for these events. Made from a pattern by Lisa at u-handbag, interpreted by me. As you can see from the first pic, they are a roomy shoulder bag and all are `Liberty` cord. Inside each one is a inner pocket and mobile phone pocket. Outside is a further large pocket. A shoppers delight I think.


More in the pipeline but fear I am going to run out of interfacing before I run out of steam and ideas. I am on a run. Look at the state of my dining room! I decided to work in the house for a bit as I had a lot of stuff to get through and a lot of stuff lying about. Besides, its still a bit parky and electricity is not getting any cheaper is it?

I think I need this fella before I make any more mess

New Additions to The Family

No don`t get excited, I have not been hiding a pregnancy. Although I do feel rather maternal towards these little cuties. They have been hogging much of my spare time lately much as children do so not so different.
Please meet



Beatrice SOLD

They have a little brother on the way but he needs sewing up.

Last minute Gifts

Last week I was caught out by a work colleagues birthday. I knew the date of said event its just that I was not so aware of the date we had reached.
You may recall the skirt I made recently, well I had some fabric left over. So a handy tutorial on u-handblog came to mind. Well after some eyelet wrangling and a lost fingernail-ouch!, here is what we ended up with.
