Gorgeous fabrics just arrived

Have a look at these lovely fabrics which have just arrived. I am going to be sewing up a treat and making lots of baby bibs with these. The Hey Diddle Diddle fabric has to be my favourite, which one is yours?
My personalised baby bibs can be found at my Etsy store and also my Madeit store. Any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.

Handmade fabric Santa's

Here are just two gorgeous fabric Santa's I made 2 years ago. Both are made with patterns and gorgeous fabric and the fabric I think is what makes them look soooo good. One Santa is stuffed with polyfill and wool for the beard (sitting on the tv unit) and I also made one each for the parents as well. The pattern is from Picklemouse Corner and is called "Country Santa". The other Santa is "flat" has quilt wadding and looks great hanging on the wall. I like them both what do you think?
Also included some pics of the kids Christmas stockings made using gorgeous fabric, wadding for the middle, fabric for the inside, minkee for the top and yes they have their names embroidered on the top.

The Christmas tree is finally up!

At long last the Christmas tree is finally up. Purchased some new decorations this year and also a brand new star, the old one was leaning way to much.
Love the Christmas skirt? Yes its handmade with lots of lovely appliques, all hand stitched. The Santa is handmade too along with another Santa that hangs on the wall, will blog about them later.

Gorgeous baby bibs - another order posted

Every now and then I find a fabric that is just screaming at me to use for my personalised baby bibs. These two fabrics are no exception. The lovely giraffes on pink is just gorgeous and I still have some left and then there's the Zipadeezoo fabric in pink, very cute but only a small amount left.
This huge order was completed over the weekend and in the post to my lovely buyer. All bibs are Christmas presents and its lovely to see so many handmade gifts being bought online this year!
You can buy these bibshere!

Christmas lilies

Gorgeous Christmas lilies are in flower now and these came to me courtesy of my mother's garden. Big huge flower with loads of perfume and I have had them for just on a week now and there are still a few flowers yet to open! Christmas lilies are planted as bulbs and reach approximately one metre in height.
