Fabric ATC Swap

I promised yesterday to post about the Fabric ATC swap, hosted by Ali at Very Berry Hand Made.

I meant to post this the first week of June but, as they say better late than never don't you think? So, above is the fabrics I had to selected from, the fabric ATC was 2.5"x 3.5"quite small.Mine was made for Dawn Nelson over at

This is what I came up with. In the details of my partner, I found out that she liked dark colours, hence the black and white, plus she likes gardening. The brief from Ali, was something new, well I have two of those, this was my first swap plus the first time I made yo yo's and such small ones. I adapted the idea from Country cottage quilting by Lynette Anderson, all be it on a very small scale, I added the red to give it a bit of a pop, I name it Mono Garden,  I've heard from Dawn and she loves it which is all that matters.

Now I bet you can't wait to see the one made for me, I was really looking forward to it popping through my letter box.

As you can see I wasn't disappointed, how cute is that? I love it,  and how adorable is the bunting. I was made for me by the Becca over at Becca Lou Creates pop over and see her.

Just had to show you the card that Becca enclosed so she could say hello, lovely huh?

Just before I go I want to say thank you to Ali for hoisting such a fun swap and if you want to see more of the Fabric ATC cards,  pop over to Very Berry Handmade ATC swap group

Bye for now

In Cross Stitcher

Guess what?

I sent this picture into Cross Stitcher, I've no idea why, just did it on whim, and they published it in the July issue. The lovely Wendy from The Crafters Apprentice sent me an email to tell me she'd seen my key ring in Cross Stitcher, I was so surprised odd thing is, I had the magazine, but hadn't got round to looking at it, so picked it up and flicked through the pages looking for it and there is was, it's quite funny seeing your name in print but I have to say I quite like it.

Bye for now

Birthday Boy

My 'little' boy is 26 today


I have no idea how they go from this to 6'4", but I know it happens in the blink of an eye, to all you mums of little ones out there enjoy every day with them.

He got a handmade card this year. 

This morning he put in a request for 'birthday brownies" it's really good to know he's not to old for them but then who is? 

Bye for now
