New cushion designs - Whitehall guard - Butterfly

 HI Crafty folks, well this is annoying. I want to show you my new cushion designs and none of them have uploaded in the correct way. So once again, please bend your head to the right and take a look.

This is a smaller version of my big butterfly cushion. Ive had alot of nice comments about it so thought it may be a good idea to make it in a smaller version so there are price options.

 Here is another butterfly cushion, very similar to my design on my pocket mirror pretty and practical mirror

My new designs include an idea I made with males in mind as I feel all my work is a bit girly. I have used an old photo I have from the 50's of a guard at Whitehall on his horse. Ive made it look like its framed in a photo album mixed with floating handwriting of the info on the back of the photo. 
As you can see these are just cut out pieces at the mo, I havnt actually made any of them yet, but they will be available as 12x12" cushions in the next couple of weeks. I also have another design of a flower and lace, il add pics when they are all complete. Until then my crafty chums, toodle pip.

Nice for a cold evening

For the Scrooges in your life

For all women everywhere, you dont even need to add the spice, just keep it all chocolate;o)

A repeat of the above, Id get rid of it if I was clever enough to know how to.

I tried this recipe and it is so scrummy.

Scrooge or Bah Humbug! Christmas cards

If you know someone that hates may find something of interest here

My first Christmas craft fair

Hi folks, Ive been to my first Christmas craft fair of the year. 1 more booked, but I may sell at another one too, I havnt decided yet.
I took my prints, stockings, dioramas, mirrors, scented decorations, pouches cards and cushions.
Here are a few links for you, Prints  Cards & Christmas items  Pocket mirrors  Cushions 

Out of all things my most popular items were my glass Christmas tree decorations(in the frame in the above photo)Hard to see from the pic but they have glitter on them. I think I was in a sunny part of the venue and they must have sparkled at people.

My cushions had some nice comments too.
So, off to solder some more Christmas tree decs, and make more labels. I made note of things I could improve on while I was there. eg my cushions were priced but the prices were on the back so nobody could see, silly me.
Only about 6 weeks til Christmas. Happy shopping.
