A little bit of sewing...

I recently made these special gifts for my sister's birthday.  It was sooo good to get back to sewing.  I just loved these so much I didn't want to give them up!

First up a Union Jack Pillow.

With a button up backing - love that almost as much as the front!

And secondly a tea cosy!
OK so for some very strange reason this keeps flipping upside down when I put it into Blogger! Anyone help?

Here is the back.

Belated card

I made this very belated card for my Brother in law.  I totally card lifted it from Karen Baker! Thanks Karen it was just what I needed!

Have a lovely day!

Case Study Challenge

Just a quick post.  I made this card for my sis to match some items I sewed for her (will share those soon!).  I used the inspiration from Case Study Challenge.

Sory for terrible photos, relying on my phone at the mo as I left my camera at my Dad's!

Wonder Woman!

Just a quick one to let you know I am alive and well!! We survived the move back to the UK and have enjoyed the unusually hot September/October.  Although today it seems to have sprung back into autumn!

I haven't been crafting at all due to the fact that I am living in a building site! However yesterday hubby went back to work so after spending yesterday cleaning up, this morning I set about unpacking my one box of crafting materials that came back airfreight.  It looks a sorry sight in the room that will one day be my craft room, but at the moment is a store room with all the wallpaper removed but not yet replastered, holes in the ceiling where the spot lights will go, wires hanging out of the ceiling and wall, cavities chased out of the walls for wires.  Not pretty at all.  But in the midst of all this I made a card this morning for a friend. 

Now there is a story behind this card! My lovely friend Lisa and her hubby Jon came over for dinner one evening.  My daughter had left some of her dress ups laying around, as kids do! And Lisa spent most of the evening rotating between wearing the Super Girl headdress and the Wonder Woman headdress!  Oh and by the way just so you know she is tee-total so not a drop of alcohol was involved!!

I used this weeks Clean and Simple sketch, but turned it upside down.

I'm now off to research tiles and glass!
