Ducks are a dabbling, up tails all.

Find these and more 4th-6th May, Henley Christchurch centre, Reading Road.
My pal Jo, who I have known since college(20 years ago!!Where did that time go)is a very talented lady.
Not only does she make fab jewellery but she has moved into felting.She felts gorgeous animals, mostly birds like blue tits, a heron and her latest is a cute little duck.Its a long process, using 1 hand held felting needle to shape the wool, she also uses sheet metal and wire to make the soldered feet.It doesnt stop there, she will be adding little chicks too!!

Please take a look below at Jo's jewellery, she can make personalised items like cufflinks with names on, a great gift for men, you know how tricky they are to buy for. Keyrings saying whatever you want them to say, necklaces. earrings all in sterling silver. Her work has even featured in an advert on TV!
Jo's jewellery website, you can contact her here.

(A day later) Warning, cuteness approaching.
And more gorgeous birdies.
My pals site is now live!!

New print ideas - Henley birds

Il be selling at The Henley Arts Trail in a few weeks, so nervous, Ive never sold at a big fair before.
So Ive been working on new ideas(full final image not shown).I managed to get an old post marked postcard for Henley off ebay,dated 1902 and mingled it with some gorgous bird images I have. Im also hopefully(fingers crossed)going to be making some more cushions, the washable kind, so maybe il add these new images to some cushion covers too.
Any feedback appreciated, I need to know if the ideas are appealing.

My fabric!!

Surpressing a jig of delirious happiness.........................................(2 hours later, I have calmed down)
My supressed jig has been released.Im happy as I love the result of a fabric sample I received.This fabric is washable so I can hopefully, one day soon, start to make my cushion covers in a a washable form. Obviously this means a price increase but hopefully the finished item will be so appealing that people wont mind....much.

Its all so exciting!

Sadly this is a no picture post, I hate them too but sometimes they happen.
Just had to say that Im looking into printable fabric so my cushion covers will one day be washable.
Also, after 24 years of having my sewing machine Ive finally worked out that it can do buttonholes!!!
So, 2 new and exciting things in the world of craft.Il let you know how things go and I may even add pictures one day.
