Show And Tell: Latest Commissions

Here's a whistle stop tour of some of the commissions I've made in May and June. The first is a set of Ladybird blocks for Charlie - a gift for a little girls birthday. I hadn't seen this particular book before and it was a real treat! 

The set features 4 full pages, which means there are complete pictures down the sides too. 

I then used other key bits of the book for the tops and bottoms - including the date, publisher, book blurb and a message for Matilda. I was going to say it is one of my favourites....but I always think that!

These signs were for friends of my sister Nelly, both having babies within days of each other. 
I love their names! (Monty Milton!)
 I always seem to have a knit block on the go somewhere...this one was for lovely Liz - who also ordered a christening block for her granddaughter Daisy...Liz gave me free reign with colours...(thanks Liz)
The next set was for a long time regular customer who, after much moving heartache, has finally moved house. Cathie requested a family set with some larger blocks to make it more substantial. Her colour scheme is neutrals with a hint of teal and fuchsia (sounds nice huh?)
The next ones were for Annie - some for her sister's engagement (remit:  Clarice Clift inspired colours with a hint of an acorn!) and some double sided Home/Love blocks in neutrals for her daughter's first house:
This next one is a new home gift for another Chipper regular, Paula, who requested Cath Kidston paper:
This large set of boy blocks were for a collective gift to celebrate the arrival of a long awaited little boy called Drew! Jacqui was able to tell me the exact colour of the nursery paint...a huge help in choosing colours for the papers
 Some larger christening blocks for Mary-Janewho also handed over full design choice!
 And finally some wedding blocks for our old pal Lisa...
That's it for my show and tell. I've been lucky enough to win 2 giveaways recently so will be showing off my booty next post...hopefully on a new laptop so I can type properly once more....fee x
