Obviously having to take October off didn't help, but I am WAY behind. I still have things to make!!
Anyway - on a positive note it's largely non Christmas commissions that are keeping me busy. Here are some of the ones I can share:
This is actually 2 sets - one for a best friend and one for a sister. I love using Cath Kidston paper -
just wish I could sell them 'legitimatly'!
Always happy to take low key orders though...
MORE home blocks
I've just finished a lovely big wedding commission - gifts for the wedding party. The theme is navy and grey, with accents of cream and pale green - and worked a treat!
I won't share too much as it hasn't happened yet - but here's a hint of the beautiful colours
I have wrapped and posted all the December wedding blocks -
these are all personalised on the back
1) glamorous black lace and cream
2) Winter white Christmas
(with hearts on the back of the snowflakes)
3) Traditional winter wedding
A hook for Ned.
His big brothers got theirs a few years ago so I had to dig deep to remember how I made them
(and find the right kind of matching hook!)I also had a lovely commission for a new baby Felix who has been poorly and not yet left the neo-natal unit (in Madrid!). His parents are from Manchester and support Manchester United (thus the red and white theme!) and the nurses in hospital call him 'Felix el gatito' (Felix the kitten)
I found the kitten images in a vintage book gifted to me (for playing with purposes!) by lovely Renee from 'My Vintage Mending' as part of a swap last year. I knew the images would find a special home....
I have of course been busy with Christmas treats too.
Santa's Magic keys are flying out (hope he appreciates how much easier it will be for him for houses where there isn't a chimney) and some Christmas commissions too.
These hearts are for grown up children who still love snowmen (who doesn't?) and retro
And lastly for today some blocks inspired by my lovely pal Jane - who is the Queen of the vintage print. I liked them so much I'm going to make them for my shop....it might even be in time for Christmas!!! Fee x
