Happy New Year!

 
I've been working for the last couple of days on some illustrated brooches, which will be in my Etsy shop soon.
 
 

 

 
 
But in the meantime, I'm polishing up my dancing shoes, ready for a night out tonight with some wonderful friends.
 
Whatever you're up to today, I wish you a very Happy New Year, may it bring you and all your family all you need.

Christmas Robins

I had a great day yesterday at The Minories Christmas Art & Design Fair, all those mince pies and the mulled wine have left me feeling rather festive, so I have spent the day making felt robins
 
 
 
If you want to make one too you can get a kit here......
 
I've dragged out all the felt from my fabric stash, and I think I'm going to spend a few days this week making some decorations for us here!
 
Oh, and I'm also need to do the Christmas cake!!!

Art & Design Christmas Fair

 
 
 
I've been busy, busy busy today getting ready for the Christmas Art &Design Fair, tomorrow at The Minories in Colchester
 
 
There are 2 exhibitions on in the gallery, Mary Lu's pop up vintage shop, and The Minories own Christmas shop will be open. What's more, it's free to get in!
I think it will be a great day, with lots of unique items, which you can either buy as gifts for your loved ones...or maybe a treat for yourself!
 
 
 
Hope to see you there!

Animal Farm

I haven't made a treasury for a while, and I seemed to have a lot of creatures hanging around in my favourites list, so I've put a few cuddly, and bizarre beasts together. Lots of them would make great Christmas gifts for anyone who has started shopping......I'd like ( any ) all of them!
 



 
You can see the full selection of fabulous wildlife here.
