Charity shop goodies!

Was having a good rummage around a local charity shop and found these...

Gorgeous or what?
I love the little heart shaped one in the middle - so sweet :)

Brand spanking new layout!

So what do you think?
Took me and the bloke about 2 hours to work out how on earth to do it... but we got there in the end!

Bookworm : )

Was having a good rummage through all of my nan's lovely old sewing books, and decided to make some cute fabric bookmarks -

I think they turned out really well,
As well as selling, they'll make cute little gifts for friends and family :)

Let me know what you think!

Where the magic happens...

Finallllllllly have a new desk!
After months of having our tiny desk piled up with stacks of this, that and the other we've managed to pick up a lovely big white desk
(although as you can see from the photos, its also piled up with this, that and the other...)

Picked it up for just £10!

Now my house is finally getting sorted (after 5 months of living here haha), I'll keep you all posted on how things are coming along,
Fingers crossed, this little corner will be much prettier the next time you see it!

Ordered some gorrrrrrrrgeous fabrics this week!
Fingers crossed they'll arrive tomorrow!
Been trawling eBay to find some bargain vintage fabric, and I did well :D

Check out these beauties!

Can't wait to get them, though not sure I'll be able to cut them up right away!

I'll keep you posted with what becomes of them! :P


We have popped one of our cute one-off cushions on ebay to give everyone a chance of grabbing a bargain!

It measures 48cm x 32cm, so more of a pillow than a cushion!

Click here to check out the listing

If you're interested in the heart shaped cushions too, have a look at our website


I now finally have our website up and running!

At the moment, we sell a small selection of cushions, patchwork quilts, decorative hearts, signs/plaques and a few other bits and pieces (all handmade by myself or my fella!)

Most items are made to order, but we have a few ready-mades that can be bought (mostly one offs!)

All are in a variety of vintage and new shabby-chic style fabrics
(think Cath Kidston, Laura Ashley, Gisella Graham kind of style)

Hope you get a chance to check it out!

Bag and Bear!

Hi again!
As promised, here are our late
st finished projects:

Made by the fella (he's a keeper haha!)
This is the first
ever bag he has patchworked,
and took him a mere 2 hours!

This little guy is my first softie, what do you think?
He was inspired by mollychicken's little sleepy characters from the Morphe toy exhibition

I'm hoping to make a few more softies over the next couple of weeks,
so watch this space!

(If you want to buy a bag similar to the one above, then feel free to contact me!)

First Post!

Hi everyone! Welcome to my blog - this is the very first post of (hopefully!) many more to come!

Please be warned, most of the time I am typing, I have a small child clinging to my arm so if what I say doesn't make very much sense, don't be surprised! :P

Over the next few days I'll be posting a few things that my Mr and I have been working on
(yes, I've roped him in too!

Here's some sneaky peeks of whats to come:

shhh! Someone's sleeping!

Meet this little character tomorrow!
